Thanks so much for your sweet note Katie! You totally made my day!! And yay for December baby girls - can you believe it's coming up on a year already?! I'm happy to take a look at your work and give feedback. Overall, I think you have a really fun illustrative style. I especially loved your Bloody Mary Brunch invitation and your Superhero kids party design is so awesome. That was one of the ones that really stood out to me from that challenge. Thanks for your feedback on my 'fill in the blank' design - I'll fix that 'xo'. Once you pointed it out, I could see where it's not clear. Anyways, thanks again for the kind note and I'm looking forward to helping each other in these challenges!

Hahaha, me too Katie. The whole time I was designing it, it was stuck in my head and I HATE that song;) Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Hey Katie! I tried to email you a few times but didn't hear back. Is that email address correct? Let me know if you still have questions. :)

Hi Katie, If you open up the Character palette in Illustrator and click on the little carrot, there is an option for superscript. I hope that answers your question. There should be some form of that available also in InDesign. I tried to answer the question on the forum, but it wouldn't let me.
