So simple, it's hard to call it a project! Cheesy  Alas, here it is. Smiley

I designed it in Photoshop, printed and used spray adhesive to attach it to the back of one of his wooden puzzles.

Since spray adhesive is reposition-able, I already peeled it off and put it in a scrapbook for this year. Smiley


If anyone needs or wants the names of the (free) fonts, just holler! Smiley

Thanks, HSG!

One of my favorite quotes is, "If I could tell a story with words, I wouldn't need to lug this camera around with me."

Totally awesome. I wonder if I can pull this off without photoshop? My kiddo starts kindergarten in a couple weeks, too!

Funny, current career choice is also paleontologist, though of the artist variety!

You totally could!  There are some free online sites you could use or just regular ole chalk, of course!

Or, if you want, I could just edit mine and email it to you to print??  I already have the file setup and it's still layered, so would only take a minute.
