It's Summer!

Hello and welcome to the second week of our Frilly and Funkie challenge! It's Jenny here hosting this one on behalf of my lovely team mate Nancy who I'm pleased to say will be back with us very soon. Nancy's thoughts when setting this challenge had definitely turned to Summer. Here's what she has to say; "Let us know what you love about Summer. Do you enjoy travelling, growing a garden, or laying on the beach? Create a vintage or shabby chic project, card, or layout showcasing what you enjoy most about this wonderful season."

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 be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. AND, we are pleased to announce that we are introducing new Top 3 Badges because choosing just one overall DT winner has become so hard!

The guidelines for entering are simple and we need you to follow them: create a new vintage themed 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.

For this second week let's see what the Funkie side of the Design Team are offering up as some inspiration (click on each image for a closer look);

Nicole Wright - Canadian Nickel Scrap'n

Sue Carrington - Stamping Sue Style

Jenny Marples - Pushing The Right Buttons

Linda Coughlin - The Funkie Junkie

Now it's time to let your mind drift to thoughts of all you love about Summer and start creating. Each and every one of you is important to us. As a team we are constantly inspired by your work and are so excited to see the lovely entries this new challenge will bring.

And as we come to the end of this term for the Frilly and Funkie Design Team we are sad to say goodbye to team member Nicole; she is moving on to pastures new having been with us since the end of last year. Linda, myself and the whole team want to thank Nicole for all her hard work, enthusiasm and gorgeous projects along the way, and wish her every success in the future.

We'll be back on Friday June 26th with a new Friday Focus so please come back for that. Thank you so much for joining us here at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!
