Default April Font Challenge

Welcome to your April Font Challenge. It's so sad to see Erika having to leave us and I hope you will all still continue with me in the font challenge. I will get a posting bonus done for you today and post it tomorrow, till then, BRING ON THE FONT...

This month we will be working with a true type font (yes Karin I heard you LOL) called FANTASTIC PETE and you can download it from fonts4free HERE
This is a "free for personal use" so if you dabble in design, sorry you can't use this one on any of your commercial items.

So I hope you like this font, it is rather mystical looking which I quite liked and the lower case is not as swirly, flairy as the Capital Letters are so it is still good for journalling too. So you could go either way, title or journalling.

As always, post your layout in the Font Challenge Gallery and then post the link here so we can all leave you some love and I can leave you a gift. sound good? Okay

Can't wait to see what treasures you come up with this month.
Tracy

Here's your posting bonus, I thought since it's the font challenge, for a change I would give you an alphabet. Next month things will start to get back to your regularly scheduled program LOL. In other words if you want you will get a mini like you usually do.

Oh wow, that font is sooo cool!! Great find Tracy!! And I love the alpha, I collect alphas, I think they are my favorite things to collect, but I don't use them on my layouts that often! Weird, huh? :p

Your layout is beautiful - and I love the way the "S" is the beginning for two words... very cool. I'll have to try for that alpha soon.

Here's mine for this challenge. I actually already had this font, but don't think I'd ever used it.

I downloaded Font but can't open it. It says "Invalid font" it comes up as a tmp file and won't expand. Is there some other way I could get it??? I use Stuff-It to Un zip. it wouldn't and Win Zip wouldn't either. I haven't had this ptoblem before.
