Get Funky Wordbooks challenge....

Phew!! its the 15th September already?!!! it must be time for a new challenge then peeps!! and its little ole me setting off the challenge over on the Get Funky Challenge blog this morning.

And this month is a really good one and I think you will all enjoy it too because it is what drew me to Funky Hand in the first place all those years ago and Anice has made the most awesome FUNKY FREEBIE for you all to join in and you don't want to miss it!  
This months Get Funky Challenge is.....


So it can be anyword, any theme as long as it is a wordbook!! and..
As always you must use at least one Funky Hand product on your wordbook..:) 
(its an easy rule and not much of an ask.)

I used the Huge Funky Love download for this entire page. Its awesome because along with the gorgeous wordbook pages you get matching A4 papers too, I used those for the base of my page.
Huge Funky Love downloadable craft word book
Its the best £4:59 I have ever spent.

Then using my corel paint shop pro x on the print layout page I opened and dragged in the wordbook pages I wanted onto an A4 size page layout. I love doing this because mini wordbooks are so much fun. I don't often use 'Word' for resizing but I guess it could do the same job really too. Did you spot it on the layout?! Here's a closer look at the pages...

I added on some little die cuts onto the patterned pages and have left the other sides plain for Mo, Scott and I to journal on when we feel always helps if you can make a scrapbook page without having lots of tears at the same time :( I am still getting emotional every time I drive past Holly's favourite field to walk in with the stream she so loved paddling in.

There are so many ways that Anice's wordbook downloads can be used and I hope my scrap page of my little Mo and Holly has given you some inspiration on how to use them with a bit of a twist.
If you don't have any of the wordbook downloads or cd's with them on,our gorgeous Anice has created a Freebie for you with 4 pages of alphabet to help you join in, simply print them out and attach them to pages to make your own wordbook up. Click on the picture below to take you to the store to get the download!!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with because I love seeing the wordbooks in action and don't forget that those awesome Funkette teamies of mine will be popping their creations on the challenge blog too over the next month so keep an eye out for them too :)

Mo has a golf lesson this morning and when we get home I will be delving into this yummy parcel that I recieved from tracy yesterday :) :) 

and this gorgeous treat from Krista too....

and Mo spent last night snuggled up with his gift from Niamh, Philly and Krista.......
He named him 'Bonbo' and when I went to check in on him last night before I went to bed he was still snuggled up with him....

Have a great saturday everyone, thank you for popping in on me
