Artistically Retarded- need help with "cute map"

Hi Ladies,
I want one of those cute maps for my welcome basket. I thought I would make them myself, but I have tried a bunch and I have come to the conclusion, I can't. I have never been crafty, I don't know anyone who is (sad, I know), I don't know why I decided this would be a good idea....

Does anyone have one that I could use? I need one of Newport Beach, including South Coast Plaza.
Another option, could someone draw me one if I send you the real map?

Any help would be appreciated.

THANKS!!!

Oh I like their map of Newport, chowbaby. We were going to get married there initially and I copied the style of this place http://couturemaps.com/
It worked pretty well, maybe you can use her for inspiration or just order from her, I think it starts at $450

I created my own map, pic in bio. I traced over a Google map and changed the colors to reflect what I wanted. I also created a map for a bride just last week who was having the same trouble as you.

Let me know if you'd like some help. abattyref at yahoo dot com.

Good luck!

Thanks girls, my goal is to not have to pay for them.
Abattyref- I may contact you if you don't mind. I don't know why this silly map is the hardest thing I have tried to do (other than organizing my bridesmaids enough to get their dresses ordered)
Your DIY stuff was fab! I am so jealous of your ability!!

abattyref has helped me on my map and she did a great job! We would have never been able to create this on our own. It's funny to look at the before version that me and my FI created and the after version that abattyref did! No comparison! Thanks, abattyref!

There's also www.weddingmapper.com. It marks all your sites (ceremony, reception, hotels, airports, etc.) on a google map. Would make a good link if you have a wedding website!
