Yes, I did actually go to Vegas...which is why I'm way behind on my sketches. :-)
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the scrapbook layout opportunities come flying at us as fast as Santa's sleigh. Some are for gifts and others are just additions to our ever-growing collection, but there never seems to be enough time.
So...instead of stressing about how you're going to scrap your children's Christmas pictures or pictures from a recent cookie exchange...get ready to celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas - Choubox Style.

Looking to make a text circle for a CD cover or to put a cool twist on your scrapbook journaling, but don't have scrapbook software? Not a problem - text circles can be easily created in MS Word using the Word Art function. Just use the following steps:
That will bring up the Word Art Gallery dialog box. You want to select the third option from the left in the very first row. It doesn't have a specific name, but it looks like bowed text. Click OK.
Your text will not automatically appear in the shape of a circle, but it's easy to do. You will notice white guide boxes that surround the text that would form a triangle if you "connected the dots".
Your text will look like a flattened circle at first, but your white guide boxes will help to fix that. You should see two in the middle of your text image.
