By the Seaside Challenge Winners

Happy Monday, everyone.  I hope your week is off to a fantastic start.  We're back today to announce the winners of our recently closed By the Seaside challenge.  What a fun group of entries for this challenge.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.  We've visited your blogs and the design team has put their heads together and come up with our Funkie Favorite for that challenge.  And that is Maryann Gross with entry #8.  Here is Maryann's entry which she made in the Finnabair style after attending Anna Dabrowska's classes.  We really loved the wonderful textured background and that amazing grouping of shells on her mixed media piece.  Sensational work, Maryann!  Congratulations on being our Funkie Favorite for the By the Seaside challenge.
And we have one more winner...picked by, it's entry #12 - Phyllis Olsen who wins a $25 gift certificate to shop at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Congratulations to you, Phyllis, and have fun shopping!
Both winners, please email Linda at for the codes for your badge or gift certificate.  And thanks again to everyone who played along!

Have you seen our latest challenge?  Cec wants us to make something inspired by what we would find or take in a Steamer Trunk.  There is still more than a week to let your imagination run wild with this fun challenge.  Hope you will play along!
