I started by finding approximately the area I wanted to use for my map in google maps. Then I saved it and moved it to power point (my preferred photo editing software.... so advanced!). I added stars for the cities and traced the major roads with black lines. I played around with the shapes to add the road numbers and our little name plate.
I am still playing around with it and adding some fun things. Like little fishes and playing around with fonts.
I can't wait to have these printed with our invitations. I am going to put written directions on one side and the map on the other. I knew I wanted to make a map but I am still shocked at how easy and fun it is turning out to be.
Any projects you got unusually excited about? Suggestions for my glorious map?
