'Tis Near Halloween

Hello friends and visitors! It's Sara Emily here to announce our newest challenge here on the Frilly and Funkie blog. The theme for the challenge is " 'Tis Near Halloween". It's no secret. I.Love.Halloween. With Halloween just a few weeks away, I challenge you to create a vintage or shabby chic project with a Halloween theme. If Halloween isn't your thing, that's OK--just be sure to include orange, black and purple in your vintage or shabby chic project (These colors are not required if your theme is Halloween.) It would be a grave mistake to miss this challenge!

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.

Now we have some spooky inspiration from our talented Funkie team:

Suzanne Czosek - Suzz's Stamping Spot 

 Sara Emily - sarascloset

Jenny Marples - Pushing The Right Buttons


Now let's get started with the spooky inspiration from our talented Frilly team:

Kathy Clement - Kathy by Design

Cec Wintonyk - CW Creations

Autumn Clark - SewPaperPaint

Are you ready to get crafting? I hope that you'll join us and share your vintage or shabby chic Halloween inspired or orange/black/purple project with us. You have until midnight on Tuesday, October 24th to link up your project below. We cant wait to see what you make!

Crafty hugs!
Sara Emily
