Funky Hand Birthday Fun Challenge!

So as promised I'm back with my make for the Get Funky challenge for this month.  I'm the host for the very first time and in honour of the brand new CD Happy Happy Birthday I've gone for...

Birthday Fun!!!

And for another first I've made a wordbook!



I thoroughly enjoyed making this & it was far easier than I had expected!  It is also very effective & has been much admired already!  I shall definitely be making a lot more of these!  I've used the Pressie Time collection from the Happy Happy Birthday CD...



- which you can see details of here and also today on Create and Craft TV at 9am & 4pm.

I just printed off each page in turn, then flipped them over & printed a coordinating patterned paper from the collection on the reverse - which as a bonus leaves you with some excellent extra scraps left over after you've cut out your pages! The pages are fixed together with twine & I've added lots of cut out stars to each page - which of course had to have a load of glitter added to make them extra sparkly! ;)

I do hope you can join in with this month's challenge! All the details on how to enter can be found here

Hi Jenny

This is just so gorgeous - especially as you have kept the letters all the same colour - this is something I don't tend to do - although I should have a go seeing as I now get the choice. On older CD's there was always a different colour for each letter.

Well, it looks great - and you would NEVER think you hadn't made one before - but without taking anything away from your talent, Anice has made them that easy to do on the Papercraft CD ROMS.

Excellent - and a great card to start the new challenge off.

Love
