Welcome to today's Guest Designer, Sandy !

It's Thursday which means it's time to welcome today's Guest Designer, Sandy Diller of My Crafty Life on the internet. Sandy was chosen by the DT as the winner of the Time after Time challenge. So, let's move on and hear what Sandy has to say.

I’m “Sew Happy” to be a guest designer here at Frilly and Funkie to share my latest project with you.  With the theme, “On The Runway”, anything sewing or fashion related, I’m truly in my element.  This theme is near and dear to my heart and it all started when my grandmother taught me how to sew.  I love the vintage style and that shabby, tattered feeling that I’ve used in my shadow box. 

My formal training is in an entirely different field but I have always loved crafting and have been making things for as long as I can remember.  We are retired in sunny Arizona and travel by RV in the summer to escape the heat.

On our adventures I delight in visiting all kinds of shops, stores and flea markets.  My stash is filled with my fabulous finds, like the real tape measure I used to make the bow on this project. 

I hope you enjoy my Sewing Shadow Box and will drop my blog (My “Crafty” Life On The Internet) to see more photos and a short tutorial. 

Fantastic project Sandy and loads more inspiration for the current challenge 'On the Runway'. Thank you for joining us here at Frilly and Funkie.

If you would like to be a Guest Designer here too, you need to do join in with the Frilly and Funkie challenge.
