We are back with promt #23

Happy new year!!!! I hope you all have had a wonderful holiday season, and have enjoyed your time with friends and family, I know I have.

Now its time to get back into the swing of things, back to work for me, and well back to the creative type. Here is to another year of type inspired challenges!

To kick off the new year, prompt #23 will involve newspaper.

Use it anyway you want, but just use it. You will find that newspaper can be a very creative, "green" way to go when putting together layouts as well as other crafty projects.

Our guest designer this round is Amy Lapi, we are also pleased to announce that Amy will go on to joining our team!


"I'm amy! i'm 23 years old, living in south Florida by way of new york. I teach at a high school, work at a restaurant, and I'm in graduate school to become a psychologist. I love christmas, pumpkin spice lattes, and Glee. Oh yeah! I live to make stuff. thanks for inviting me to guest design! :)"






And here is what some of us Typists have come up with:

*Danielle*




*Louise*




*Wendy*






*Kent*




*Pam*




*Patty*



You will have until Sunday, January 17th (2 p.m) to link up your layout or project in the comment section of this blog entry.

Have fun!!!

I was clearing up my space recently and came across the original birth notice in the paper for DS#3 so this challenge was perfect inspiration to do something with it :-) Thanks so much.
