On  November 15, 2012Karla Roeglin (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Tracee!
Where do you get your neat fonts (esp. the big numbers)? Also, do you make all your clip art or do you get it from someplace?
I love your units! :)
Thanks so much! :)

On  November 15, 2012Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Karla! I make my own clip art (the background in 2013 is from my Funky frames - I just adjusted the coloring after I placed it on the page to make it bolder & brighter, then put a transparent square over it. I design using Mac's Pages). My fonts are from Kimberly Geswein - she has a store here on TpT now. :) I love all of hers! If you do a search of her name or KG fonts (also Janda fonts - she carries both), you'll find her! Thanks for your interest! -Tracee
