Could you please tell me how you were able to bring your blocks into the diagram? Thank you!

we copied and pasted using a good paint program or graphics program - like Paint Shop Pro or Photo Shop. You need to take a straight on - as possible - of your block.

I love the pinks and greys - reminds me of old fashioned candy.

I got this idea from others in the class who have done the same thing. I scanned the layout into my computer. I used Windows Paint. In my computer Paint is located under the Accessories menu under All Programs. I opened the Jan. block in Paint, highlighted the block, right-clicked to open the menu so I could copy the block. Then I opened the layout in Paint and pasted the block onto the layout. I drug the block to the space it belonged, resized it to fit the space, and rotated it to lay the way I wanted. I then pasted the remaining January blocks and did the same with them. I saved the new layout and proceeded using the same method to copy and paste the February and March blocks onto the layout. Hope this works for you!
