Bulletin Redesign

Design, My Life
I am working on a redesign of our church bulletin. We are moving from a weekly to a monthly so instead of just moving the stuff around I thought I would look at coming up with a new design. I have been "working" on this for a couple of weeks now which means that I have put together my template and stared at a blank screen a little each night trying to come up with ideas.
