6 foot Young Womens Theme Board

 A friend asked me quite awhile ago if I could design the Young Womens Theme to fit a 6 foot board, and I thought, why haven't I done that before now??!!  I would love that in my girls room, instead of the poster that falls down constantly and has ripped corners from younger siblings getting a hold of it.  ;)
So this is what I came up with.  It is on a 1"x12"x6' pine board.
The center portion with the values on it is on a separate board.  I routered the edges of the values board to give it more dimension and character.  I also painted the values in their assigned colors.
 I used moulding from Lowes on the top and bottom of the board and then there are two teeny tiny little strips next to the moulding.  If you look close in the picture you can see, the first is a scallop, and the one just under it is little raised bumps.  Those are from Michaels.....on the doll house supply aisle.  They have some REALLY cute petite mouldings that are perfect for crafts on that aisle.
 The font I used for the entire board is KG Strawberry Limeade and it's free.  You can find it HERE.
Here's a pic of the finished 6 foot board.  I really love how it turned out, and it's a lot more sturdy than the poster!
