Read Any Good Books Lately?

Welcome friends and visitors! It's Sara Emily here, and I'm hosting my first challenge as a Frilly and Funkie Design Team member. Let's take a look at what I've chosen for the next two week's challenge...

Read Any Good Books Lately? Reading a good book on the beach or on the porch is a simple summer pleasure. For this challenge, please create a vintage or shabby chic project that depicts a favorite book or use book pages on your project, alter a book or even make a journal or journal page! Just be sure it's in the vintage or shabby chic style that we are looking for!

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us for a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing 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 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.

Here is some inspiration from the Funkie side of the team:

Now that you've seen what the Frilly girls have created, I hope you are inspired to pull out your crafty goodies and share a vintage or shabby chic project depicting a favorite book or somehow relating to a book as noted in the description above. We can't wait to see what you'll create! For even more inspiration check back next week when the Funkie side of the team and our latest Guest Designer will be here to share their Good Books creations with you.
