Back into the swing of things prompt #22

First of all, I would like to thank all of you for being very patient!! I have no clue what has happened this past month, but I feel time has flown by and my mind is just a big puddle:) I started this challenge site because well I loved challenge sites and thought it would be great to have my own, to inspire others. With alot of help from the girls and a break from running it for a few months, I realized it is alot of work(rewarding) and that I really do love this site and all of the girls on the team as well as all of the people who participate, so thank you!!!

I also wanted to give a very big, HUGE congratulations to
one of our Typists who gave birth to her twins this past Friday!!! Judean and her husband(and family) have welcomed two healthy babies into the world, a little girl and little boy. From all of us at The Creative Type, Best wishes and lots of love to you and your family, and take as long as a break as you need:) We understand!! hehe.

Now on to who won prompt #21(insert drum roll)............................................Chris and her lovely layout "Joy" As always it was super, super hard to pick. We all agreed that this prompt was extra hard, so many good entries.

Chris, please email( me so I can set up your prize!!!!! And thank you once again to everyone who plays along, keep them coming. You are inspiring us!

This next prompt is a fun one. We have taken inspiration from a very creative artist named Rob Ryan. For those of you who are not quite sure who he is, be sure to check out his shop as well as his blog.

He is an extremely talented paper cutting artist. Rob Ryan's pieces are really one of a kind, delicate and oh so intricate.

For this prompt we want to see something inspired by his paper cutting's. Of course we are looking along the lines of Typ
ography, but really use your imagination and have tons of fun!!!

Our Guest Designer for #22 is Kara Haupt
Here is a little intro on this creative lady:):

"Hey! My name is Kara Haupt and I live in Idaho. I'm 17 years old and a Senior in High School. I've been scrapbooking/art journaling for a few years now. I spend most of time avoiding homework, spending too much time on the internet, doing stupid things with friends. I'm attending art school and hope to become a photographer and artist. Thanks to the Creative Type for asking me! :)"

Check out this fabulous piece she came up with:

Thank you Kara!!!!

One lucky winner we will receive a Rob Ryan book entitled
" This is for you"

Which happens to be a fab
ulous book containing some of his gorgeous paper cuttings. You can read more about it here. Thanks to Jen for sponsoring us with this great book!!!

On to what the Typists have created!!!
