Several of you have asked what I use to create the cute images like this one that I recently shared on Facebook and Instagram. The answer is PicMonkey!
PicMonkey is a FREE online photo editor that comes with all kinds of cool fonts, overlays, special effects and other design tools. You can upload your own photos and graphic files, or use the large collection available in the PicMonkey library. It works right in your web browser so there is nothing to download or install.

Use PicMonkey to create Valentine’s Day cards, frame-able art prints, online graphics, party decor and more. No special technical or design skills are required…you can just jump right in. I own and am trained in PhotoShop & Illustrator but find using PicMonkey to be faster and easier about 99% of the time.

Check out this FREE PicMonkey Tutorial on how to add fun overlays to your photos!

Go HERE to check it out for yourself. Set up a free account and use it for as long as you like. Once you’ve used it for a while, you’ll probably want to upgrade to PicMonkey Royale, which unlocks even more amazing features and tools for just pennies per day…but that’s optional and FREE PicMonkey will knock your sox off!

It’s totally free, they even mail it to you for free…you just have to provide your email address and mailing address and then go crazy choosing fun outfits, hats, accessories and more for each of your family characters. If you are much shorter than your partner, you can choose “teenager” for your stick figure, which is what I did, because Woof Woof Papa is WAY taller than me!

When you decide it’s just the look you want, you are able to save the image file to your desktop and request your free Disney decal by mail. There’s a limit of one per address, so be sure it’s exactly the way you want it before you order. This is SUCH a cute freebie…be sure to show us your decal, too!
