I've blown a fuse

well it is more like I have spluttered out. Not feeling too great which is a shame as Phil and I are doing something FUN tomorrow that I need lots of energy for. Which is a great excuse for doing very little today. Well since this mornings service anyway. Haven't been feeling on top form since Friday and I only have small bursts of energy. So I haven't responded to many of the Daring cards as yet (sorry) and I am a whole day late for the Get Funky challenge (even bigger sorry).

Enough wingeing - on with the show! Get Funky is the new challenge blog for the Funky Hand papers. Every month therewill be a challenge hosted by one of the team and there is a fabby prize to be won £20 in Funky Hand gift vouchers - so well worth going in for.
If you don't have any FH papers yet (and why not? they are a crafters "must") th there is even a freebie download to go for.
This month there is a challenge to use a sketch by Anice - Ms Funky herself. I decided to use the freebie papers. SO did Anice and we are currently arguing over who rocked the papers/sketch best. I love her chocolate flower and the extra bling. She likes my felt flower. SO we will just have to declare a draw (only hers is better)
I printed the papers out in two sizes - which I can do with Picasa. I cut out ovals with nestabilitiesand cutthem in half. The stripe is only part way across because that is as long as the stripe went vertically and I prefer my stripes that way. I like it though. I wish I had added some staples at the edges fo an extra something. The felt flower I have had for years. Ditto the button. The sentiment is from Imagine That.
Now it is your turn!

I was very excited today to get my paws on the September Scrapbook Trends cos I am in it (my photo and everythng!). I've saved this layout to show you in case they didn't like them being on blogs first
The papers letter stickers and shaped acetate were all from a GottaCraft Kit. The scallop is Chatterbox. American Craft thickers and Imagine That buttons and bob's your layout. I love this shot of Em and Little C and I think it is my most favourite journalling ever as it is so true
Those letters were quite hard to photograph so here is a close upRight that is enough computer time for now. I'll be back soon!
