I am working on a new project and I want to pre-pave how simple, easy and successful it is going to go, so I am collecting all the inspirational things around the subject that I could include on my first board of the program.
While I was finding some cool quotes and pictures I also came across some pictures of a beautiful beach in the tropics. I've been starting to think about taking a vacation lately so I saved the picture for a different board later on.
By "coincidence" a friend of mine emailed me a couple of photos taken of my family at a party we all went to last weekend, and some of them came out pretty cute.
"Wouldn't it be fun if I cropped out one of the family photos and placed our family directly "in" the tropical beach photo?" I wondered.
So I went back online and found some awesome free software I could play around with.
Well! That was pretty much the end of that! (Also the reason I never got around to posting yesterday.) I was having such a good time I couldn't stop myself. The next thing I knew I was cropping and pasting all over the place!
What a fun way to bring a Vision Board to a new level! Instead of just the normal inspirational photos and quotes - I now have actual pictures of my family and my self shown enjoying the new things I want to create.
I cropped a small picture of my head and placed it in the window of the new Cadillac Escalade I've been drooling over.
I put my head on Carmen Electra's body. I put my husbands head on a muscle builder (he might not have found it as amusing as I did - but I could tell by his eye roll that he wasn't too upset).
I placed us in front of Disneyworld (another trip we've been thinking about taking), I found a great picture of money falling from the sky and placed us under it. I even found pictures of women dressed in some cute outfits that I put my little head on.
It was just too much fun! Plus the pictures make me smile every time I look at them which is a pretty good vibration to be putting out when you are looking at something you want to create.
So if you would like to have some fun today as well as create some awesome new pictures for your Vision Board, I've included some of the free picture programs I have found below.

Here is a quick tutorial video you can use: Create Fun Photos
This can be used to make your own inspirational Posters
If you happen to have Photoshop, you can of coarse use that too to make the pictures look more realistic. If not, go to Paint.net. This is a free program you can download that works similar to Photoshop (but with fewer bells and whistles).
The inspirational photos that can be used for backdrops can simply be found in both Google pictures and on Flickr.com.
Obviously your personal photos you can download from your camera.
So get started having fun today! I have to warn you though, it might not be a good idea to do this at work. It gets awfully addicting!
