Eat, drink and be merry!

Hello and welcome back to week #2 of our Eat, drink and be merry challenge.  Thanks so much to all of you who have shared your inspired creations with us.  If you haven't played along, we hope you will.  There is still one more week for you to link up your entry.  And to provide even more inspiration, our Funkie team has their terrific takes on this challenge theme.

**********Week #1 Post**********

Welcome everyone. Buttons here to host the next fortnightly challenge here at Frilly and Funkie. So glad you have joined us to see what we have in store for you this time. Before the details are revealed we want to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered our 'Anything Goes' challenge. There has been such a great response to it and the Design Team are going to have a hard time trying to decide on a winner. Pop back next Monday, September 23rd to find out who it is.

Now for the next challenge. As the Northern hemisphere plunges wholeheartedly into harvest time it seemed appropriate to focus on the things we eat and drink. We want you to put together a project that includes food or a beverage (or both if you like) in some way. You can use images of them, pick a project that could contain or cover them them (a sweet box, lunch bag, bottle cover... you get the idea) or use colours with food/drink inspired names (Mustard Seed/Walnut Stain/Seedless Preserves, for example). You might even want to use food or drink items to help create/colour your project (lemon juice, tea bags, coffee grinds, salt, and so on).

Create your new project, link it below and you could be chosen as our winner. For another random entry there is also the chance to win a $25 shopping spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! And new rule going forward, you can now combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges in total (including this one) to qualify.

 As ever, one half of the Design Team kick off the challenge with their take on this theme.
