Chicago weather for you!

Well, the first day of Spring was yesterday and today we have a full-blown snow storm happening! Our area is expecting up to 6 inches of snow! Chicago weather never ceases to amaze me. We may be wearing our boots with our Easter finest this weekend!

On another note, I finally finished up on the large wedding reception job I designed from scratch. She wanted the whole thing: programs, table cards, bag tags, menus and stationary to print itineraries. I am so excited about it because it was quite a challenge. Palm trees are not the easiest to create so I had to expand my knowledge of Photoshop and really push the limits of my abilities.

Since I wasn't sure what they were looking for, I created sort of an Art Deco tree....very modern:

Then she said she was looking more for a "true" palm tree, so I came up with this:

Ultimately, when we got the color squared away, and after numerous proofs and changes, the final products came out as such:

Yes, the Bag Tag (the last image) is a different color.....sort of. It is on white paper, but the bags she is putting them on are a much darker blue.....almost a turquoise color as opposed the the more sky blue/robin's egg color in the other items.
It was fun designing all these items....I do hope to do more of it....so bring your ideas!
