Hello fellow scrappers! I am the guest hostess for the next 2 weeks' theme challenges! I'm posting early this week because I am having a garage sale early tomorrow morning.

This week I am taking some inspiration from a couple of sources. The first source is our very own gallery here on Splitcoast. The second source is the Dirty Dozen gallery for this month.

I have noticed some wonderful pages in our gallery using monograms. This month the Dirty Dozen has created masterpieces using mongrams/letters/ABC's. So let's get personal and use those monograms on our pages. I personally do not own any; however, I have created wonderful monograms by using the Print Shop program on my computer. For this challenge...as far as fonts are concerned....do it BIG! The bigger the better!

Here are some pages that I found for sources of inspiration in the gallery:
kpaisely1: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...ram&perpage=12

Misermom: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...ram&perpage=12


Please post any questions you may have in this thread and I'm looking forward to seeing your wonderful monogrammed pages!

Great challenge. Thanks for posting early and good luck with your garage sale.

I did a faux monogram for a challenge back in March, still one of my favorites pages, gosh that is like saying "one of my favorite kids"!

Baby

Thanks for the reminder, hopefully I can get another layout done.

I can't wait to do another one. Maybe I can add one to the pages I have planned to work on tomorrow. Great challenge Erika.

Ohhh I like these letters, but don't have any. Love the idea of using Print Shop. I think that is what I have on my computer. I use it all the time and who knows what it is .
Ok getting back into the groove and getting my stuff worked on!

Well page 1 doesn't have either, but it's part of the layout. I have several monograms that I've been planning to use, so I'll have to whip up another page at least!
