Type-A . . . choose a favorite DD Alpha + a favorite font

Today the typography challenge is a “bare basics” challenge . . . and is a challenge, which I think that most everyone will find may be an easy-peasy one to do.  Not much thinking involved today . . . which is a good thing for me. We have had several grandchildren at our house for a week and I’m a bit sleep deprived I’m afraid!

The challenge this week is to use one of your favorite Designer Digital’s Alphas + a favorite font.  The DD Store is chock-full of wonderful alphas to choose from, and I am sure that you have several in your digital stash if you are like most of us!  The only problem with finding your favorite font is that there are thousands to choose from!

This week three of our Creative Team friends . . . Sara, Sharon & Wendy have scrapped wonderful pages for the challenge.

Sharon’s (aka Shannamay) layout is so pretty with the spring like lavender and a dotty alpha to highlight her new lavender “gumboots”.  Sharon is a master using elements in creative ways and has used a perfect alpha too.  I love the simple color change which Sharon used to make this alpha just right for her layout!

Sara’s (aka sarahorton) page for the challenge is a real treasure.  Our Sara is a genius . . . she knows just how to do so many tricks and treats in Photoshop & Photoshop Elements . . . and is also so good to share her knowledge with us!  Today we see the ultimate in newspaper articles from Sara and her chicks!  If you read each word . . . you will have no choice but to laugh outloud!  I adore Sara’s sense of humor!

Wendy’s (aka wendymck) layout is simple and really packs a punch.  Wendy’s wonderful photographs created a layout which needed no journaling to tell about highlights from this family trip to the zoo . . . so she chose a font and a great alpha combo to use as the title for this page.  Don’t you just love the photos of the animals and the children?   This makes me want to take a trip to the zoo soon.

I hope you are inspired to create a page of your own for the Type-A typography challenge this week and I look forward to seeing your layout in the Just My Type gallery along with Wendy’s, Sara’s and Sharon’s.
