Feeding the Dolphins Layout

Hello!!  Lori here from Scrappin'MyStressAway!  I am excited to be on TheBugBytes with a very fun layout.

When we were at Sea World recently, my most favorite part was feeding the dolphins.  I started designing this layout on the plane ride home!!!

When I create a 2 page layer, I typically open a 12x24 mat on my Gypsy and lay things out on the first Layer.

I welded the letters "the" on the back of the dolphin,

I had some trouble with my dolphin border (two welded together).  The inner cuts were too intricate and they tore.

From the advanced menu, I used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts.

I planned on layering two borders (one on top of the other) along each page.  I had a limited amount of this tourquise paper (thanks to the tearing), so I just used the one.

To add some dimension I used twine and fuzzy ribbon.

Once I cut out the title, I kept the negative piece to use as a template to glue the letters down in a straight line.

I found some sea shells and coral from Paper Doll Dress up.  I grabbed some fish, seahorses and birds from Life is a Beach.  I hid the extra fish and stretched this one out a bit to  make it longer ~ I wanted it to mimic the fish we fed the dolphins.

I took a scrap of white cardstock and my Score Board and created this tiny paper box.  I trimmed the corners and glued the sides together.

I took this shape from Lacy Labels size at 7.71 inches to tuck behind my larger photo.

I added some paper coral, shells and seahorses around my photos.  I added the white birds to the top of my layout.

I took a scrap of yellow paper and used a border stamp to soften the edge.  I hand wrote the journaling and tucked it under the photo.

Thank you Pam for having me over today!!!
