For those of us dragging our feet on our yearbook entries (lol), can we see some of the other entries by chance? That might help me get going.

But if I send you an image that is big enough to be scaled down to fit, then I do not have to worry about those measurements, do I?

Even just seeing Melanie’s helped me πŸ™‚
