Water, Water, Everywhere

Editor's Note: Before we get into the new challenge theme there are lots of changes to let you know about. The most obvious is the new look and our name change! We will now be known as The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog to reflect our association to The Funkie Junkie Boutique online store, and will continue to feature those Frilly and Funkie style projects you love to see.

There are also a couple of team changes; sadly Kathy Wright Clement has stepped down as she has new and exciting opportunities taking more of her time now. We will all miss her so much, and as well as thanking her for her for everything she did for the team we wish her every success with her new creative adventures. And you'll see that Maggi Harding is missing from our line up this week - Maggi is taking a much needed break for the summer but she'll be back with us in September. Talking of changes, in future we will be combining the projects from both the Frilly and Funkie sides of the Design Team at the beginning of each challenge. Don't worry though, you will still have the usual two weeks in which to enter your projects - we look forward to seeing them! And now for the new challenge...


It is Cec here and I am your hostess for this new challenge here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog. I am calling it Water, Water, Everywhere and this is how I describe it:
Often when people go on vacation there is water involved – fishing, cruising, checking out the aquarium, enjoying water sports or playing in the sand at the beach. For this challenge I want you to create a vintage or shabby chic project that reminds you of one or more of these past times.

The winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, 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. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

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 'Funkie Junkie Boutique 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.
