Woo-hoo!!! finished my word book!!!

Well, I have spent most of the day in my new crafty space built for me by my amazing husband. I am now the proud owner of one amazing crafty worktop, shelves , drawers and ribbon holder!!! I will post some piccies soon but I have been working hard in here all day and it looks like a whrilwind went through it at the moment!!!!
So I used my amazing huge funky love cd from for my 'beth' book to print the gorgeous papers on the pages that I made with my cds. ( I used storybook for the birthday girl 1st pagey bit and pooh font for the letters, all welded to stretched squares from my george cart!!)
This is the first proper wordbook I have made on my cds and I have to say I think it is really cute. The papers from funkyhand just bring it to life.
I used some glittery effect adhesive paper for the top layer of 'beth' and 'birthday girl' ( ooooh, that birthday girl bit was really fiddly!!!!!!) and sat a little summery tilda on a ribbon. I foam dotted most of her out but I stuck her hands to the ribbon, I think she looks more real like that!!!
I also cuttlebug embossed some buttons onto the first pagey bit and inked them too, then I popped a bit of anita's 3d gloss on them to help them stand up. At the moment the rest of the pages have no embellies yet as I am waiting for my bestfriend Leah ( who I have made the book for for a card for one of her little people she looks after) to tell me what she needs inside. She is going to put some photographs of beth inside so maybe she will want some journalling tickets?!! I don't know yet!! I will post piccies of the inside should I change them!!!! Beth's fav colour is green so I think I used enough here!!!! That is what I love about huge funky love, it is all co-ordinated.
The cute little bear card is one I made with one of my big sis's images, I love the little family of bears, You could have so many sentiments to go with this one but I liked 'Have a 'beary' happy birthday!!'.
I printed it, coloured it, rounded the corners, inked them, popped it on foam dots and then onto a butterfly base card, popped a bit of ribbon down the side with 2 'cheats' bows and voila!!! quick but very cute card!!!
So now I only have a challange card and a challenge layout to do!!!!
Thankyou for popping by!! I am going to give my lovely husband some snuggles now.
