prompt #16

Welcome to prompt #16. This prompt is one of the most fun ones yet! Here at The Creative Type we looooove all the fonty-goodness out there in the world but let's face it, there's nothing quite like our own handwriting..... So for kicks and giggles this week we're all about our 'own font'.

The challenge is easy:
add a bunch of your own handwriting to your layout - make it stand-out, front and center! complete a fun handwriting analysis and let us know what your handwriting says about YOU!

Here are some great links that Judean found:

http://handwriting.feedbucket.com/
http://www.viewzone.com/handwriting.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphology
http://www.personalitytest.net/funtest/handwriting.htm

or the one below that came from REAL SIMPLE that was the catalyst for this prompt (click to enlarge and print)...

link us up in here by the 17th to win a 20 dollar gift certificate from the fantabulous Stephanie Wheeler @ The Living Room Floor

and YOU could be the proud owner (and lucky duck) of something like this.....

pretty sweet huh? Thanks Steph!!

Now onto our guest this week. Say 'hey' to Amy Cutler!!!! I adore Amy because she's 100% genuine, and real, and edgy, and sweet all rolled into one - plus she's got a style like no other. Check it out....

The analysis:

I like to be surrounded by four solid walls.
I am social, diplomatic, objective, and live in the present.
I am talkative person, maybe even a busybody!
I enjoy life in my own way and do not depend on the opinions of others.

All of this would be correct except the surrounded by four walls thing - I'm like real claustrophobic. Hope I did this challenge right, first time - if not someone guide me please.

LOVED this one. I'm not a fan of my handwriting, but I always do my journaling in it, because it's quicker than typing it up on a computer & printing it out *just the right size* KWIM?!

I really love this hand-job-prompt. :)
The plan was to analyse my DH handwriting....but I ended up just using my own handwriting...and no analysing...ok - I was just inspired by your prompt....but didn't follow the rules....LOL That's me... Anyhow: Thanks for the inspo!! Love ya.
hugs.

Here is my take:
