Does anyone know where I can find the font used in this layout by lilismother?
It's this month's scarplift layout and I love the font!

I've never seen a font with those beautiful lines. (Not that it isn't there, but just that I've not seen it!) She might have written it on her tablet and it's her own handwriting.

looking at the credits i went a wandering and found the wordart used for this- its a series of one liners and the style of the lines does make you think it was hand drawn
will watch with interest in case anyone turns up that type of font as i like it too

You know, I really think it is part of a WA pack she had. Perhaps you can PM her and ask her.

I'm with Darlene on this, but check out Carolina Curvy (http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.htm?productid=1078669). It's quite similar, but not free.

If it's free you need, go to the handwritten fonts here (http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=603) or here (http://www.kevinandamanda.com/fonts/) and check out all the possiblities.

Thank you all so much! I went to Dafonts and the first one that came up was "Before the Rain" which is almost the same...how cool is that?

I did a search at Dafonts for Before the Rain and it couldn't find anything! Is it called anything else?

That's a very cool font - I downloaded it myself. I've gotten quite a few fonts from that sight - it's great for scrapbookers!

Thanks for the suggestion on the font-I've already downloaded it and used it!

Ran across something interesting in the TOU for the font Before the Rain. He says, "This font is for PERSONAL USE ONLY:
Do not under any circumstances use the font in public media unless permission is given from designer..."

I wonder what this means for us as scrappers who display our layouts in the galleries and on FB, etc.? I understand personal use and how that relates to not using the font for anything that is sold, but the bit about "public media" has me puzzled. Anyone have any ideas?

I went to his website and he says "Basically, if you make profit you will need a license.
You can use the fonts for free on personal blogs and other personal accounts on the Internet, e g Youtube, Facebook, Twitter…" I may email him for clarification.
