I did it! I followed Mrs. Hibiscus’ tutorial using Google maps and Powerpoint. Check it out!
You know how if you look at something for too long you miss something? That’s how I feel.I am not sure if it’s finished. Any suggestions? Is anything missing?

Oops, I better spell check. I just noticed Church is spelled wrong. Oh, yeah and the church above the North was my second option for a church.
Which church would be best? The current one or the one above the N?

This looks great! The only thing I would change a bit is the wording of the directions to the church – the first couple of lines were a bit confusing the first time I read it. Maybe:
Take the 15 south
Exit left onto Rancho California Rd
Right on Ynez Rd

That’s great! I love the little pictures and it looks much more useful and personalized than a google map. I think your guests will really appreciate it!
I just have a couple of tiny suggestions. In a few places the first letters of street names are lowercase–I’d capitalize the first letter of each word (Rancho California Rd.). And add periods to “St.” and “Rd.” (you’ve got them in most places, but not in all of them). Oh, and add a period after “St” in “St. Catherine of Alexandria.” And finally, delete the extra period after “C St.” in the last line of the directions to the ceremony.
It’s funny, I knew you were from Southern California right away–I moved here a couple years ago, and I’ve never lived anywhere else where people use “the” in front of freeway numbers. I guess it’s another one of those fun local words 🙂 Anyway–great job!

Thank girls. Yes, I still have some editing to do.
@prairiegrl: Thanks for letting me know. It does seem a little confusing. I will change it so it sounds right.
@WeeBirdy: that so funny about the freeway thing. I never new people didn’t say “the”. Ha. Thanks for all the suggestions. I will definitely proof the final map before sending it out. All your suggestions were great.

Ha ha, yes I used to make fun of my FI for saying the “the” all the time (neither of us are native Southern Californians, so I tell him he’s being a poser). But now I’ve been here long enough that I catch myself doing it all the time too. D’oh! 🙂
Anyway, great job again!
