    So excited to try it out for the first time and it was surprisingly easy.
    The most complicated part was trying to turn powerpoint into an image (select entire slide, copy into paint, then crop).
    My colors are red, sand, and white. I made two monograms to start with, the first doesn't really have red (but it has sand and white), but I would paste it over a deep red that compliments it on our boarding pass sleeves (when I actually get around to making them). The second pretty much has all our colors. Which do you guys think. Or should I keep working at it? Thanks!

    Now that I think about it, these aren't really monograms, more like logos...

      I like #1 but then again blue is my favourite colour. Both are pretty. I love that your names are Chris and Chris, that made me totally smile. So cute.

          I like #1 too but I think the text is easier to read in #2. You really can't go wrong with either, they are both great.

                  Great job on both of them but I prefer #2. I think they'd look great on an ivory or white boarding pass jacket.

                    I like them both but I think I like the first one more because it pops a little more and your names stand out, so cute that it's Chris & Chris. Maybe you could try making the first one have a halo boarder of a different color in the orange or yellow to tie that in a little more?
