With such an amazing and sharing community, I thought I'd share something I made recently.
I needed a graphic background of a notepad and pencil but couldn't find exactly what I was needing. The one's I did find I figured I could make without the cost. I know most all of you fall into the same frustration when looking for that "just right" graphic.
This was constructed entirely in PowerPoint so if you want to change the color of the pencil, the notebook, or the paper you can make hundreds of these for yourself!
Attached is the .PNG file and the .PPTX file with the complete breakdown and steps to make it. If all you're needing is to change colors, just edit the last slide's shape objects > select all > Save As PNG
