Get Funky Challenge - Word Books!

The month long challenge over at Get Funky is underway and it's my turn to provide some inspiration!  The theme set by the lovely Lou is:


Well, I do like my wordbooks and I get a lot of requests to make them too because they are so different to the standard card.  I've used the Wishes and Kisses cd and simply printed the templates with the letters I need.  I then layered them up and added my embellishments and ribbons.  I decided to make a wordbook of my new Niece who I'd taken photos of with the boys when she was just a week old - she's changed a bit since as she's almost 7 months now!

I've added little scallop tags for journalling and threaded pink organza ribbon through.  I've also glittered the edges of the letters too - you just can't see it too well in the photos.

As always, there is a Funky Hand freebie for you to use in this month's challenge and you too can make your own wordbook with it!  Don't forget that we must see a Funky Hand product in your creation!  Good luck!
