Paper Issues: You Are Just My Type!

The new issue is on the Paper Issues blog today!
You Are Just My Type! This challenge can be interpreted using any of the following - Valentine's Day, love, relationships, typewriters, fonts, subway art, typography, etc.

I have so many layouts I could link up for this theme! And I always link a bunch of older pages along with any new I might create. I am actually working on a small little project now for Mike :)
But here are a few of the older pages I am linking up now...
Going with the obvious on this one...Valentine's Day :) Created my own heart stencil and used white mist to create a feeling of flour. 
A layout as much about the changes in our relationship after Erin was born as it is about us taking Evan to his first U2 concert. :) This is also an older layout.

I have a special love for Ireland! Always will.
And this layout about Mike and our anniversary a few years ago. I love, love this memory!
I will stop there, but will have lots more to link as the next two weeks go by.

If you would like to link up for a chance to win a $20 gift card to the store, check out this post *Here*. It has all the details!

Also, I didn't forget to pick a winner last night for my giveaway on *this post*.
Number 7 came up and that was...
Jules (Julie)
Sounds like you are on track and ready to blog! As is evident, I have been struggling but I finally cleaned my scrap area late last night and I feel like that has also given me a clearer path to start blogging again....weird, I know! Can't wait to see what you working on AND those goodies look AWESOME!!! Have a great day!

email me at the link under my profile and give me your address. Hoping to send your package off tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by today :)
