********Week 1 Post********
Hello Frilly & Funkie followers! Anita Houston here to bring you the new fortnightly challenge, which is "Renaissance Men".  Let's pay homage to any of the four big Renaissance Men (or Ninja kidding) who have inspired us all at one time or another - Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello,  Raphael. Show a project depicting any one or more of their works, tell which it is, and who created it. Here are a few to get your creative juices flowing.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni
Donato di Niccolò di Betto Bardi
Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino
The Frilly part of the Design Team has really outdone themselves with these creative beauties. I know I feel totally inspired just looking at them. You have until August 7, 2012, to link up! I hope you play along!

Our challenge offers two opportunities for prizes - a random drawing for a $25 gift certificate to shop at The Funkie Junkie Boutique and a best project competition, judged by the voting of the design team members. The Funkie Favorite winner receives a winner's badge to display on their blog sidebar.  In order to qualify for a prize, you must follow the challenge requirements and provide a link back to our challenge site in your post.

Thanks again for stopping by. Be sure to stop back next Wednesday for even more inspiration from our Funkie designers!
