Forgotten Funkies!!....Funky Little Christmas...

Papers and Toppers- Funky Little Christmas from Funky Hand.
I'm back everyone!!!

Its that time of month again for our 'Forgotten Funkies' showcase!!! and each month our fabulous Funkette's are over on our blog showing off some new makes with our older downloads. 

Today's showcase is centered all around the fabulously festive 'Funky Little Christmas' download. This download really packs a punch with its paper designs full of funky and zingy christmas colours and even comes with a sheet of card toppers that are just wonderful to play with.
Funky Little Christmas

I had to use that awesome step card die again! but I knew it would be just fab for me to use the whole sheet of toppers with!! I love these funky little christmas trees, it makes such a change from the traditional colours and my fav paper ever from the download is this texty merry christmas one,its fab!! I used the largest topper for the sentiment piece inside my card, you can just see it peeking out in the photo.

The topper on the front is actually curved and look so cool but could I get a good picture of that....errrrr...nope!! so here's a side shot where I tried to get a piccy of it!!

All the little tree's are popped up on foam squares to give them some umpf...and make them look like a little happy forest of chrimbly.....   

Well, that really is me done with makes for today now. I have had such a strange week I am looking forward to just having time to have a think about things today because little Mo's new school have picked up a problem with Mo. They feel he may have Aspergers or Autism and although it is a shock to actually hear it from someone else and has made me feel really sad, it is also a massive relief to us as we have thought this for many years. So I am also thankful for an amazing team of teachers at Mo's new school for noting and picking this up so quickly so we can go forward. I feel super safe knowing that the teaching team are actually looking out for my son.

Nothing will change in the way we are with Mo but it will help school to know how to help him understand the world outside our house and our family bubble a bit more. That is something he has always struggled with but I am ful of hope because he is so much happier at his new school and even wants to go on the overnight trip with his classmates so I know there are exciting times ahead, it will just take a couple of days for the shock of being supported and helped to sink in. I got to say...Mo's new school rocks!! and the teaching team are just drop your jaw awesome.

And in the midst of all my tears and emotions yesterday my little guy still mamnged to make me smile even though he wasn't here. I went to make my omlette for dinner and found this.....

Have a fantastic friday peeps, huge hugs for you all

Morning peeps!!

Its time for a fabulous friday over on the Tiddly inks challenge blog so I thought I would share a diary I made a couple of weeks ago with the awesome new Sk8tr. Isn't he fab?!! 
I coloured him up and did some fussy cutting around the edges of him. Then I covered a little day to a page 2014 diary with some We are memory makers paper and glued him to the front. I die cut the 2014 and then glued it on too, then to finish it off and protect it all for use I gave it a really good spray with crafters companion spray varnish. I love how it made him look all worn into the paper!! so cool!!

Right, I'll be back in a few with my forgotten funkies post for funky hand!! we have a lovely little showcase of christmassy makes from the DT using Funky little christmas download.

huge hugs Lou xxxx
