Thanks Doodle! I'm really loving Instructables......Such a fun site.

Nice, I love the color combinations!

Thanks Danger! I was tortured by this project. I couldn't get it just right and then it dawned on me to use black and white graphic prints to make them a little different. Trial and error (mostly error!)
