RePurpose To UpCycle

Week II - The Funkies
April 25th post update:  We are back today with Part II of our "RePurpose To UpCycle" challenge here at Frilly and Funkie.   Last week the Frillies showed you what they created, so now it's the Funkies' turn! You can still make either type, frilly or funkie, and link up this week before the challenge ends on May 1st.  There will be  two winners - one random pick will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Funkie Junkie Boutique, and one favorite pick of the design team will receive a winner's badge to display on their blog. We have a terrific line up and I hope you will take time to stop by each Design Team Member's personal blogs and leave them some love.

Week 1 - The Frillies
Hello Frilly and Funkie crafters! I am Anita Houston, and your hostess for this next fortnightly challenge.  The challenge, should you choose to accept, is "RePurpose to UpCycle". We all live on Mother Earth and have to do our part to keep her healthy, not just on Earth Day but always. As paper crafters it's very important not to waste much. For this challenge, use at least two repurposed items to create an upcycled paper project, and don't forget to list what they are. Extra kudos to you if you can depict Mother Earth in some way as well.

This week the Frillies will show you what they have created, and next week the Funkies will show theirs. You can make either type and link up this week or next, the choice is yours.  Whatever your vintage style - frilly, funkie or somewhere in between, feel free to link up your project any time during the two weeks the challenge runs. This challenge theme runs through Tuesday, May 1st.  We will have two winners - one random pick will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Funkie Junkie Boutique.  And one favorite pick of the design team will receive a winner's badge to display on their blog.
