Legoland! - Paper Issues

The new issue is up over at Paper Issues! This months theme is called " Let's Taco 'bout It" and one of the suggested ideas is to use a speech bubble. I thought that sounded fun, and I knew the perfect FREE Speech Bubble cut file to use! And because there is nothing better than a FREE cut file, I used this FREE Adventure cut file too!

It all started with this photo of my boy looking through the Lego shark at Legoland. I wanted to go with a sea/pirate/adventure theme, so I used the papers and ephemera from the Secrets of the Sea boy collection by Bella Blvd. The colors are bright and fun, and have lots of sea creatures and even have that cute ship and pirate too!

I used white cardstock for my background, layered the embellishment pieces next to my photo, and then added the speech bubble.
To make the speech bubble, I first cut the border from red cardstock using my Silhouette die cutting machine, then I used the print option to print my journaling on white cardstock. Next, I used the cut option to cut out the speech bubble, and then glued the two pieces together. Such a quick and easy way to add journaling!

While you're over at Paper Issues grabbing these two cut files, be sure to check out the other FREE cut files too, there's a bunch of them in the store!!
