for love of the vintage bus rollsign

come june i will have happily been on the same bus for 15 years. 
i have been loving the vintage bus rollsigns that are seen all over these days.
with them being a bit pricey for my taste,
i decided to create my own.
and at the same time, make it a little more personal.

mr. traybella and i are both from kansas city.
we were married on the greek island of santorini.
i realize that our wedding date isn't a destination, but i wanted some numbers on this roll and like i said, i made this a little more personal.
then we lived in brookside, a cute little neighborhood in kansas city.
moved to dhahran, saudi arabia for 6 years.
and reside now in leawood.
i love how this turned out.
i created it using my new print shop program.
i think the original font to these bus signs is 'helvetica' but i didn't have that font {and was having trouble finding/downloading one} so i just used one that looked appealing to me. 
then i sent it off to snapfish and had a poster (16x20) made.  easy peasy inexpensive personal ART!
