Funky Fifteenth Challenge- Going round in circles!

Well, its been 6 days since Allison kicked us off  in fabby fashion on our new way of doing challenges here on Get Funky with the Going Round In Circles challenge!!! so with that in mind it comes to me, Lou, to post my circley piece of inspiration for you!!

....and here it is........

I had a very boring looking little notebook sat staring at me on my workdesk and it wa screaming out for a bit of funkiness!!!!
I printed my papers out from the Colour Me Happy papercraft factory.I just love those big juicy polkadots!!
I adhered them onto my notebook and using my nesties I cut out some circle shapes to make a nice little home for my scrunched up flower.
The flower itself was really easy to make.
I punched 6 little scalloped circles out and screwed them up into little balls.
Then I unfolded each little screwed up ball, placed them on top of each other and used my crop o dile big bite to punch a little hole through all the layers.
I popped a little split pin through the hole and covered it with one of the juicy polkadots cut out from my scraps of paper.
Then all you do is just play with the layers to arrange your flower how you like it. I like mine a little scrunched up!!

So now a quick recap on how to join in.......

The main rule that you must use at least one Funky Hand product remains the same and to help you take part this month there is a freebie which Anice is so kindly giving away for this month to help you with this challenge
Your freebie can be downloaded  here from the Funky Hand website, keep checking back with us every month for a lovely new one!!

And remember, you will have to come back here every third day this month when a different DT member will be showcasing their project, so remember to follow this blog so you know when a new project has been uploaded. So be back for the 24th when Anice will have something to share with us!!
