First sketch the boarder. Have him or her sit by the table where you and
the boarder have your meals. That would make a nice homey picture.
Once done with the boarder, make a rectangular block for the title and have
the boarder sign it. You can title it "Boarder at Dinner"

Upon thinking a bit more on this, the following question comes to
mind: Why choose rec.woodworking, to ask something like this, instead
of one of the computer newsgroups, or forums? Oh yes, dags
plattscsd.org and you come up with high school in NY. Kinda makes me
wonder if it's not another school kid, wanting someone to do his
homework for him.

Hmm. You've already heard about the all-caps thing from those who
weren't ever beginners - and it'd appear that all the Sketch-Up users
are officers of the spelling police - so you're stuck with
questionable advice from a guy who's never used the program...
Try creating a drawing that consists of nothing but an
appropriately-sized border and the title block of your own design. I
have two of these, one for portrait orientation drawings and one for
To use these in DesignCAD, I make my new drawing of an assembly or
part, then open my saved border/title block and copy it to the
clipboard. Then I close the border file and paste the border/title
block into my new drawing.
Now I can do a proportional re-size of the border and title block and
move it to surround the new drawing. Don't re-size any of the elements
of your new drawing because that'd screw up the dimensions!
When you like what you see, add text to the title block and save your
new drawing with text and title block.
SketchUp may or may not work like DesignCAD for these operations - but
it seem reasonable that it has at least similar capabilities that'll
let you get the job done.

Not sure what the limitations are on SketchUp's free version, but it
should work as you're just opening up a file and working on that.
