Lovely Leaves

Hi there everyone, Jenny here with you to host the latest challenge here at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. For this one I've chosen the theme 'Lovely Leaves'. At this time of year leaves take over from flowers as the stars of Nature's display - the deciduous ones take on beautiful Autumnal hues before falling to the ground, whilst the evergreen ones keep our gardens from looking bare as we wait for new flowers to appear in the Spring. For this challenge make sure to add leaves (or even Pine Needles if you like) to your vintage or shabby chic projects.

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.

Our amazing Design Team are here to kick you off with their projects for this challenge. Simply click on their blog names to find out more about their makes.

  4. Commenting on Nancy's tag #19 here, since I'm not on IG. Nancy, I love your 'crossover' design with the pumpkin and Christmas tree, and of course, those Lovely Leaves in their muted winter colors. Your background is fantastic and the dimension of the wood slice really wows me! Thank you so much for playing along in our challenge!
