Vintage Travel Challenge!

STOP PRESS; Things have been a little slow the past month here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. We have a lot of dies and texture fades in stock that are starting to collect dust. I don't know about you, but I hate dusting! Maybe you would like to help us avoid that chore by taking advantage of our Sizzix overstock sale. From now through August 11th, all in-stock Sizzix products are an extra 15% off. That includes Tim Holtz Alterations dies and texture fades. Some of the older dies are discounted even more. The sale does not include pre-ordered products. Check the 'On Sale' tab at the boutique to see what's on sale. It's a great time to stock up on all the seasonal dies and texture fades. Shop early because quantities are limited.

Now back to the challenge...

Hello and welcome back! Nancy here with the second week of an exciting challenge! Summer is in full swing, bringing with it the height of vacation season. Our challenge is to create a project, card, or lay out with a vintage travel theme, whether it's far away over the sea or Route 66! The winner will earn a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters will have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

The guidelines for entering are simple: create a new, vintage themed project, link it below and make sure you add a link in your post (not just your blog) back to this challenge. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past when they have entered too many other challenges. If you are entering through a public forum please use keyword F&F. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our design team can leave comments on your blogs.

It's time for the Funkie side of our design team  to present their projects, and we are so happy to have Trace back with us after a short break; just click on the blog name to find out more about each one...
