Surf's Up!

Hello, Friends! It's Kathy here to announce the latest challenge at Frilly and Funkie. Who's ready for a little sand, a little sun and a little surf? Let's take this challenge for a stroll beside the shore! Create a vintage or shabby chic project with a beachy theme. Use ocean colors and beach images to add a fun seaside feel to your project.
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 Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team, because choosing just one winner is 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 (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.

  8. Rox, I've just left you a nice long comment (sorry, I can't comment on Instagram), but my Internet has been spotty and now it's somewhere off in parts unknown. Thank you so much for being a faithful participant in our challenges here at Frilly and Funkie! Both your entries are gorgeous! I love your scallop shell on the second entry and would love to know how you colored it. Hugs!
