I managed to get the Family sign completed yesterday. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but still think it needs something around the "F", but I'm leaving it alone before I mess it up in trying to "fix" it. I feel better about getting it done and I'll feel even more better when I can finish up the graduation mini album that's waiting for me next.
It's not like we aren't having the perfect weather to work on these projects. We got a cold blast yesterday that brought about 4 inches of snow overnight. That's not very much by our standards, but the wind will make me want to stay inside! I know my Canadian friends are probably chuckling right now, but to be honest, it doesn't snow around here like it did when I was a kid. We've had milder weather here in the southern Lake Michigan area for so many years now. I seriously think they should rezone us from a 5 to a 6 for planting conditions. There's been times over the last few years that the south has gotten more snow than us and we're in a Lake Effect snow area where we can get snow just by the way the wind blows off the lake when no one else does.
This photo was taken yesterday about an hour after it started snowing. There's a bit more there now, but still nothing to write home about, even though Brooke was happy to know that she got to sleep in because of a two hour delay this morning.
There is quite a bit more snow just to the north of us around the Indiana/Michigan state line, and they're expected to get more today because of the lake effect. Most times we're just a little too far south for it to reach us, unless the wind is more out of the north. THEN, we can get hammered!
In case there are questions about what the FONT is at the bottom, it's Chocolate Box or something like that. I know Chocolate Box is free at dafont.com.
And some other close up features of the sign.
Sorry if that last image was a little blurry, but I was playing around with these in Picnik (didn't notice that one wasn't quite right). It's a fun little photo editing program that has lots of free features in it and if you want to really go all out, there's some extra fun features that you can get by purchasing the Premium pkg. that is like barely over $2 a month! It's more like $25 for a whole year. I'm saving for Disney later this year or else I might just be looking at buying that, but for now, I'm good with the standard version. This might be the ticket for those of us who have been brave enough to buy PhotoShop, but not brave enough to get it mastered.
I'll be linking up to these parties:
God Bless and have a great day!
