By the Sea Challenge

Hello, Friends!  It's summertime, and our minds turn toward the shore where we find sparkling sands, delicate shells and refreshing breezes. This sets the theme for our latest BY THE SEA challenge. Let's take a virtual beach trip by creating any kind of vintage or shabby chic project that features a nautical or beach theme and color palette.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

The guidelines for entering are simple: create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. 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.

This week, the Funkie team shares their take on the challenge and we are thrilled to welcome Zoe back after her own adventures abroad... so let's set sail on the high seas again!

Now it's your turn!  What will you create that leaves us feeling the wind in our hair, the salt spray on our faces and sand between our toes? We can't wait to see what you see BY THE SEA. Be sure to link up below so that you can have a chance to win.

And remember to come back tomorrow to see what our latest Guest Designer has to share with us.

We'll be back next week to see what the Funkie side of the team has for us in the way of beachy inspiration.
