Merry Christmas

Hope you are having a blessed Christmas Day! I'm sharing my day with our close family and I'm so excited for my little boy's first Christmas :)

I'm loving the trendy chalkboard look this year. It makes me think of Caribou Coffee... and that makes me think of Chai tea. Mmmmm.... Chai.... and now I'm craving one! Anywho, back to the task at hand- I took my inspiration for the back from the chalkboards they have in the Caribou shops. They just give you a header to write about and then leave some chalk out for you to fill up the board. What do you think of my take on it:

There are a couple of good downloads with a chalkboard background in them. This one is the Convention 2012 photobook. It actually has a couple of different color chalkboards in it- Love That!

Then, the key to achieving the chalkboard look is all in picking the right fonts and playing with opacity. For some great chalkboard font ideas I suggest searching Pinterest- it is always a wealth of information :)

Have a Merry Christmas! Hope your day is as Jolly as Santa himself :)

Pin It!
