WOW!! Gracefully!! That looks AWESOME!!!! I love the pattern on your board! Is that on there or what did you use? Your letter looks great too! Have you actually sent it to your bride? Or was it for play???

Beautiful!

Thanks Marthajo!
The pattern I found online same as the flowers. I was just playing around to get the hang of it. It took me about 2.5 hours to finish it. It was alot of fun.

I am having problems with my Powerpoint. Can I put the rulers on the sides, or is that a Publisher thing only? Also, is there a version of Publisher that won't break my bank? This looks like the type of thing that will help me out very much. The cake here is beautiful!

Using Powerpoint I didn't use the rulers because couldn't find them so I did with out. I don't think Powerpoint has the rulers. Over all It still worked out.
Thanks!

rulers in XP version of PowerPoint

horizontal -- VIEW Menu -- click on RULER

vertical -- TOOLS menu -- OPTIONS -- VIEW tab -- click box in front of VERTICAL RULER

and for extra fun ---

make the GRID show up too.

VIEW Menu -- click on GRID AND GUIDES....then set spacing to what you like (say .5 or even .25) and click on SHOW GRID

ALSO -- click on DISPLAY DRAWING GUIDES ON SCREEN

and finally, if it helps you (try it to see) click on SNAP TO GRID


----

and if you hover your mouse pointer anywhere over the blank slide -- and then RIGHT click -- well, gollllll-lee -- there's both the ruler and guides menu options! (tho' you still have to set the vertical ruler to show by going to Tools>Options>View)
