License Plate Sign

Jonas' bedroom is dark blue on the bottom half of the wall and a tan color on the top half. Jason is in the process of putting together several old WWII model airplanes to hang in there. I'm looking for just the right map to hang on one of the walls. When I saw these license plate letters I knew I needed them for Jo's room! I cut a piece of wood to the right length and then cut out a section of a map to put on the wood. I used some decopauge to stick the map to the wood.

Next, I hot glued the letters on. And this is how it turned out! Jonas was a big help and is very proud of his name sign!

To All: I need help! When I try to upload pictures from my computer to create a new post I am only able to do 5 pics at a time. When I save my pics to photobucket and then upload them from there I can do tons of pics, but they're all sized wrong! It took me 5 years to just do this post and the pics are still kind of cut off on the right. How do you guys do it?

I can't really help you on the blogging lagistics, but I can say that the license plate name sign you made is simply adorable! I think it turned out great! On the map part I saw that you used part of Wyoming, that's where I am originally from! =) You have so many great ideas and it's so fun of you to share them! I hope you can figure out the picture thing. Sorry I can't help!

thanks janelle. Your encouragement is very nice. I did intentionally use the northwest part of the map. jason's from oregon so jonas knows where that is from when we visit the grandparents.

AWESOME SIGN! It is so, so cool!
And your "model" is just adorable!!!
Um, I'll be checking back for any advice you receive bc I am still a 5-at-a-time blogger!! (that's why facebook is so tempting; who can beat 60 at-a-time!!!) Do you like photobucket??? Also, I cannot post a link in my text...how do you do that??? :}

erin- Your posts have so many pics though and no break in between. how do you do that? It looks like one long continuous post. I can answer the "link in the text" question... when you're doing a post, highlight the text that you want to be a link. Go to the "link" box (it's to the right of text color) and click on it. Type (or copy and paste) the web address of the site you want to link to in the blank. Click "ok" and you're done!

Where did the license plate letters come from? That is great. Did you put it at the head of his bed?
