The funkettes and I just want to see what you all get up to making using your Funky Hand downloads,cd's and stamps so its an....
Anything Goes Using Funky Hand challenge!!!

Free craft backing papers to download for card making and scrapbooking
This paper has a gorgeously distressed effect when you print it out, I love it!! Thank you Anice xxxx

So onto my make for this month!!! I used the wordbook generator on the Wishes and Kisses Papercraft factory cd rom to make myself a Beach wordbook. Now, check out the letters!! have you noticed the lowercase ones??!! I absolutely love the new Lowercase alphabet on the Wishes and Kisses edition, I love being able to use both upper and lowercase on one project!!

I printed out some of the journalling shapes from the templates and made a few giftcards smaller, also from the templates, for tucking little photographs or beachy keepsakes in......left to mo the pockets would be full of sand and teeny shells from the beach!!!

I made some little photo mounts using a couple of different coloured sheets from the same colourway and set them throughout the pages...
 I printed out a piece of blue paper from the same colourway ( this is the You're Engaged colourway) and ripped it up to make some cool waves along the bottom of my letters.
 I covered a couple of die cut gift tags with a pocket with my scraps left over from the little photo frames I made, added a bit of twine and stuck them in.
 A little bit of bunting for the last page and a sunshine cutout from the scraps of the left handside page with some glossy accents on.....
So I can't wait to see what you all join in with this month and don't forget we love to see the little peeps crafting too so if they make anything with your Funky hand products don't forget to blog them and link them in over on the challenge blog too!!!

Right then, breakfast buddy and Aunty Duty for me again today!! yesterday my feet hardly touched the ground, (....though Mo and I did get a little visit in with one of my gorgeous friends just before bedtime. We had a cup of tea in her gorgeous little sunhouse and Mo crashed soon after we got back home) so I am hoping for a bit of a quieter day today!! Mum's consultant is unwell so they cancelled mum's appointment which she was so sad about so a bit of 'nannie cheering up' with my little peeps might have to happen too!!!

Thank you for popping in on me
Huge hugs Lou xxxxx
