January 23: National Handwriting Day
Lots of scrapbookers shy away from using their own handwriting on layouts.

Whether or not you fall into this group of scrappers, use this day to commemorate a very unique and special part of you - your handwriting - on your next layout!

It's also a great opportunity to show your children's progress in learning to write or improving their handwriting.

Here's a few ideas to get you started:

  • your handwriting
  • your child practicing their penmanship
  • signatures of the same person at various points in their life
  • Write On!
  • The Writing on the Wall
  • “Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • “Handwriting is autobiography.” Carrie Latet
  • Use a patterned paper with a ledger or notebook style design.
  • Handwrite your title and/or journaling.
I encourage you to share the layouts you create from this prompt in the NEW :BE INSPIRED: Creativity Prompts Flickr group pool!!
