Challenge Winners - Surf's Up!

Hi everyone! Today we announce our top picks from the 'Surf's Up!' challenge. We were delighted to see such beautiful beach themed projects from all the participants. Thank you to all of you who took the time to join in the fun.

Having taken time to look at them all the Design Team chose #14 Lyla Larimore who shared this incredible project that has to be seen to be believed - find it HERE. We all marvelled at the level of detail that went into both the cover of this treasure chest, it's contents and the chest itself, and were all transported to a life on the ocean waves immediately. Congratulations Lyla on being our favourite and winning the opportunity to be a Guest Designer here at Frilly and Funkie for a future challenge. You will be contacted with all the details.

And now for the three winners of our Frilly and Funkie Top 3 Badges for this challenge; the choices this time were, in numerical order; #10 Glenda, #13 Lucy and #15 Karen. Please email Linda at thefunkiejunkie@gmail.com for the codes for the Top 3 badges so that you can display them proudly on your blog.

And finally we have a randomly chosen lucky winner for the $25 gift certificate to The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Our congratulations this time go to #8 Dorothy! Please email Linda at thefunkiejunkie@gmail.com for the gift certificate details.

A big thank you again from the Frilly and Funkie team to everyone who took part in this challenge and congratulations to all our winners. The current challenge, 'Layers of Lace' runs through Tuesday, June 5th and the Funkie side of the Design Team will be back here on Wednesday May 30th with some more inspiration for you. We hope to see you entering this time around so that you too can be in with a chance to win.

Have a great week everyone!

    Ladies...I am VERY HONORED!
    And, above all: HUMBLED. Because the HUGE TALENT in these challenges
    HASTA make it very difficult to choose winners, & just being included in all these incredible designs is an awesome thing!
    If someone even remotely thinks their entry or design "isn't as great" because it wasn't chosen...THINK AGAIN, PLEASE!!! Because every single entry I have made, I look at it thinking "Man, this is nowhere NEARLYas clean-cut, nicely shaped, flaw-free, nor as pretty, nor frilly like all the others. Dud. But...it IS clearly ME, so.....IN IT GOES." Whatever YOUR design is...it is YOU. And, I for one, really wish I could make those lovely, frilly items the rest seem to just breeze through! Every time I try with flowers & lace....I REALLY STRUGGLE. Designing with birds, butterflies, flowers, have always been hard for me to include (just like clothes shopping; much to the cringeing of my dear ChiefHubby who often does that for me).
    I can GROW flowers, LOVE birdies & "flutterbyes", but PAPER ones really fluster me. And THAT's why I've been finally adding all those old TH dies to my collection: trying to practice a bit more out of my box.
    This latest Challenge?? I simply draw a BIG FAT BLANK.
    But; "challenge" is the key word!!
    And, I will reply to the Qs in my Blog abt how I did the sailboat!!
