This week we'll be going over how to create clean/classic looking siggies. This is actually one I usually do earlier in the challenges, but did not this time around. Here are some examples from my gallery:









It doesn't have to be in the recatangle format, it just needs to be clean and simple looking.

Requirements:
I want to see at least 1 use of bevel/shiney text
No animation
I want to see at least 2 fonts
No scrapbooking elements
Brushes can be used but don't have to
At least 2 photos

post your original here whenever you get it done, and then you go over to the Makers Lounge for CC, your final edit of the siggy though needs to be in by SUNDAY night. If I am going to be late putting up the poll Monday I generally let you know you have a little extra time.
