Penguin Challenge

This week's Bitten by the Bug2 challenge is to use a penguin in a cricut project. Here I used Noah's ABC Animals for the tile and penguin and System Font for the title, which is Barista. I love this handwriting font - although un welded fonts sometimes are challenging to glue down. I used my Xyron X adhesive and finally figured out that burnishing the letters alleviates the overall stickiness, especially in the letters that have circles and curves. Took me years to discover this simple tip, lol.

As far as my layout, what a great memory to preserve. And touching a penguin and hearing his heartbeat is something that you can never forget. And how interesting to learn that these feathered birds live on warm beaches instead of the icy snowy arctic!


  1. Penguins are definitely so interesting and adorable. I always enjoy visiting them at the zoo. All of the images make your layout so sprecial. I love the pictures, too. Fabulous wording!

  2. What a perfect layout for this week, Laura. Those photos are fabulous, as are your Cricut cut penguins and other elements. Great job!
