You are my Greatest Adventure

I am having a baby next month and loved this quote for his nursery.  I know my way around Illustrator, but I still struggle with some of the more technical things..  I haven't added texture yet because I REALLY struggle with Photoshop.  Working on it..

Anyway, I started out with a few different sketches and ideas..  This is my first-ever hand-lettering experience and I have a lot of practice to do!!  I was able to sketch out some that I liked, however, and really enjoyed the process.  I had a hard time narrowing it down but finally settled on the world. 

I had so much fun in Illustrator that I ended up scanning in a few rough designs, and doing each in a variety of colors.  I really liked the simple design below until my husband (and a few others) told me it didn't read well.. They didn't see the U and follow it around.  Oh well. 

Here are the others.. The dark blue is my favorite, and I will be spending the rest of my time adding texture to that one (and figuring out Photoshop).

Any tips for a newbie?  I would love some feedback!!
