The little things.....

Papers- Wishes & Kisses from Funky Hand
Hello Peeps!!
I hope you are all having a wonderful saturday. I have been busy making Mo a little base for his soldiers this morning and I wanted to share my other explosion box make with you using the new cd from FunkyHand. 
I absolutely adore this explosion box template!!! it is the perfect size for tucking in 2 cute little LOTV peeps!!!
This particular one is an anniversary card for my friend to give to her hubby on their first anniversary which is on monday. Heres a few piccies!!! please excuse my classy rubber band to hold up the layers!!! romfl!!!

...and here it is all tucked up and waiting to surprise someone!!!
I am popping my little explosion box in the challenge over on Lili's Little Fairies- which is Anything Goes

Just sometimes my world jumps up and bites me hard on the butt, today was one of those days :( I was supposed to be at a BBQ today with some of my family, I was really looking forward to some family time. I suffer terribly with my nerves and a few strangers started arriving which set me on edge. I tried my best to wait until my Grandad arrived but pretty much as he did so did more strangers and I started to feel sick, then the agitated feeling started and dopey me ended up worrying, got myself all dafty Lou and we came home. I have spent my afternoon in the house  crying and would make a totally awesome panda bear should anyone need one for a zoo! so if you know anyone out there who suffers with their nerves like I do just please give them a huge hug because there are times when I just cannot fathom out why I get this way.
Tomorrow will be a better day. Thank you so much for popping in on me and reading my waffles!!
Huge hugs Lou xxxx

  16. Aww Lou, so sorry to hear that you have been so upset. Sending you a HUGE HUG. Wish I could send you a little confidence too, I'm one of those awful people who can talk to anyone anywhere and usually do. It drives my sister bonkers. The only thing to do is take one day at a time, and try to remember the good ones. No use stewing on what's gone before as it can't be changed (I know easier said than done).
    One good thing did come out of it, this AMAZING exploding box. It is totally delicious and I am sure your friend will love it.
    Warmest wishes for a better day

  22. Very adorable Lou!


  23. This is so great! Totally impressive in every way!!!

  24. I came over from the Lili's Little Fairies blog to see this amazing creation, but as I read on I realized how grateful I am I stopped by. I have those moments too! There are many reasons for it. I just know it's brain chemicals. For years I thought I was going crazy, but found out I have PMDD (just Google it). It made sense once I realized there was an actual pattern. So huge hugs your way. I am so glad you shared that.

  25. Just popped in again to say congrats, I see you made top three!

  26. Beautiful creation Lou, found your lovely blog from Lili's little fairies and had to become a follower after seeing that amazing explosion box you made - wow! No wonder you made Top 3 - well deserved!
    Don't let the nerves get you down
