Prompt #32

that's right... monograms!!  perhaps you think of beautifully monograms pillowcases given to a newly married couple, or matching towels, but you get the idea.  think letters!!  for a more detailed explanation check out the definition HERE.  that might help!  perhaps think about the first letter of your last name or your initials.  do a page about what they mean to you or how you came to have them.  maybe compare your maiden name with your married name.  but remember to focus on the LETTERS!! 

now i'd like to introduce you to our Guest TyPisT for this prompt:  the fabulous ILLY!!

My name is Ilaria (better known as ILLY), I'm 26 years old and I live in Italy with my boyfriend Dario and my two cats Elle and Nina.
I discovered scrapbooking in january 2008 and I fell in love... It was the perfect solution for my photo albums, I have been looking for it for years and I finally found it!
In march 2009 I discovered mixed media and it was instant love. I 've never been a "perfect artist", I always felt like an artist but I didn't believe in my "abilities". Now I believe. Now I know that I can be an artist. Because I love what I do and even if I'm not painting realistically, I do what I like and I'm happy. I discovered the pleasure of playing with art supplies and I love layers.

and here is her fabulous page. see the letter "i" for her name?? what a cool way to interpret a monogram!!

thanks so much for creating with us this prompt!!

and now for the TyPistS pages.  we had a lot of fun playing with letters!! 
so now its your turn!!  come up with some unique way to feature a monogram on your page and link us up!!  we can't wait to see what you create. 
please link your pages to the comments section of this post by Sunday June 6th.  the winner selected will have a chance to be featured as a Guest TyPisTs in a future prompt!! 
have fun and focus on the letters!!
