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.

We have the lovely Mandy Dodd as our Guest TyPisT for this prompt.  Lets learn a little more about her: 

I’m waving from gorgeous green Tasmania where I live in a big old house looking over the sea with my my ever patient dh (especially when it comes to scrapping!!)
We have three beautiful busy daughters who just about always feature in my LO’s along with our two cats and finches!  
I guess my style has been described as shabby chic - but I'll do something different every now and then! Most of all I love TEXTURE - fabrics and laces - layering and distressing, inking and PAINT!!
I love love love how CT motivates me do things I don’t usually think about.  It’s a wonderful Challenge Blog that helps my scrapbooking techniques progress and grow.  I’ve really enjoyed creating this otp project – just perfect to store my yo yos in!!  Totally love recycling objects!!  Jars are always fun!!

 And here is her project:
Thanks you sooo much Mandy for creating just for us.  And what a great way to use up those old rub-ons!!
