Something to Say...

Hi everyone and welcome! Jenny here as your host for the second week of our latest challenge, 'Something to Say...'. There are so many fabulous quotes and sayings now available for use on our projects. Whether you stamp it, print it, write it or die cut it, make your sentiment the main focus of attention on your vintage or shabby chic entries.

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 new Top 3 Badges for three outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because choosing just one winner has become so hard!

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.

Let's take a look at more fabulous inspiration from the Funkie side of the Design Team to get those creative juices flowing (just click on each image for a closer look);


Before we show you the Frilly DT's work we are waving goodbye to one Funkie DT member and saying hello to the latest member of the Funkie DT. As we said at the end of the last challenge post we are sad to announce that Nicole is leaving us for 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. And we are thrilled to confirm that the amazing Shelly Hickox will become the newest member of the Frilly and Funkie family! Shelly creates the most incredible pieces and we are sure you will join us in welcoming her.

Let's start with some amazing inspiration from the Frilly side of the Design Team to get your creative juices flowing (just click on each image for a closer look);
