Time for a change!

I have been looking for a new mouse pad for about a year,mine was getting really gross! I could never find one that I really liked, it was either the wrong color, too cheesey,to cutsie.....although this guy was kinda cute, he was just getting worn out!  so this morning as I sat on the computer I looked over at it and thought ugh! this things gotta go!!!!



 so I thought I would try something...
I peeled off the front, traced the shape onto some printed cardstock, glues it on the pad with zip dry, trimmed it a bit, inked around the edges and cut a piece of peel and stick laminate to fit,





 applied that on top and volia!





Looks much better, don't you think? You could get really creative and do a digital layout and make a personalized mouse pad..give it a try!

To change your font on your blog go to: Design/Blogger Template Designer/Advanced(tab)and scroll to the bottom where you will find Blog txt font, Blog description font, ect...
and you can change that way =)
I hope this was somewhat helpful.
