Something Old

Hi everyone and welcome! Jenny here as your host for the latest Frilly and Funkie challenge 'Something Old'. I'm sure, like me, there will be lots of you who love all things vintage and enjoy nothing more than discovering old and unwanted treasure at thrift shops and junk markets. The challenge this time is to use something old either as the basis of your project or as an addition to your vintage or shabby chic creation.

The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

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 (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

And as we begin this second week we have some more amazing inspiration from the Funkie side of the Design Team;

Suzanne Czosek - Suzz's Stamping Spot 

Jenny Marples - Pushing The Right Buttons


Let's start this first week with some wonderful inspiration from the Frilly side of the Design Team;

Kathy Clement - Kathy by Design

Cec Wintonyk - CW Card Creations

Nancy Dynes - Tattered Treasures

So now it's your turn. You have until Tuesday, June 6th to get your thinking caps on and create a numerical project. We can't wait to see what you make! Don't forget to check back tomorrow to see what our latest Guest Designer has created for this challenge, and in one week for more inspiration from the Funkie side of the Design Team.

Take care of yourselves and have fun!
