A Pirate's Life

My friend, who has a preteen daughter, gave me a set of pirate stickers. Somehow, she guessed I'd have much more opportunity to use them.  I immediately pulled some patterned paper from AWDML that was a color match to the stickers. I decided to make a 2 page layout from my boys' recent trip to Disney with their grandparents and aunt and uncle. They went on Disney's Pirate Pal's Fireworks Cruise while they were there, so the photos from that night were a perfect match to the pirate stickers.

I used my computer to print the journaling for this layout. I had a lot I wanted to say in a little space, so my handwriting was just not going to cut it. I use a lot to find fun, free fonts for journaling and for cutting on my Silhouette.  If you're looking to compare the different fonts on your computer with a line of text or journaling, I'd also suggest another free program called FontViewer ( You can type in a title or line of text from your journaling, and it will show you a side by side comparison of how it will look in all the different fonts on your computer in every text style (bold, italic, etc.). It's a handy little program.

 When I finished my 2 page layout, I had plenty of stickers left over, so I pulled a few more pieces of paper from my stash and made a one page layout of their trip to Disney's Pirates League (where they got pirate makeovers on their first day at Disney). 

 Thanks for stopping by!
