Funky Fairys Challenges and Blog Hop

***BLOG HOP & CANDY NOW CLOSED***


Welcome to the 1st Funky Fairy's Blog Hop to celebrate the merging of the Shop & Challenge Design Teams. We thought that we had to mark this occasion & celebrate with a "Funky Fairy" party . . . or a blog hop in this instance!

Now the theme this week over on the Challenge Blog is "Case It". This simply means that we have been looking at each others fab projects and choosing one to "CASE" (case is an acronym for Copy And Share Everything) so you create a project using someone else's work as your inspiration but do not need to copy it exactly. Well as you can imagine all the DT members got involved & have pulled "a blinder" this week and if you follow the blog hop you will see all their brilliant projects. Please do leave a comment on every blog you visit to be eligible for the fab prize being offered by Funky Fairy's Papercrafts (via the Inspiration Blog) . . . we will check you know!

Here is my project . . . .
 
  
Now I drew inspiration for this mosaic box by CASING a wonderful project by Lorraine for the 'Dare To Be Sqaure' challenge back in April.  Here is a picture of Lorraine's inspiring project.

For my box I used Funky Fairys 'Simply Brushed' papers for the mosaic squares. The box was a plain wooden craft box from The Range.  I painted the box lid with grey acrylic paint and the box base with purple and green twinkling H2O's then rubbed down with some sandpaper.

Now you have just left Jilly's blog & already got their letter but please don't forget to collect my letter which is "N". At this point you should have 8 letters. The next blog you need to pop over & visit is Ginny's Blog. If you have not collected all the previous letters, please pop back to the beginning of our blog hop over on the Inspiration Blog.
****CANDY ALERT****
I'm offering one lucky winner a little bit of candy to be eligble for my candy draw you must have taken part in the Blog Hop, so when you leave a comment please say your on the "Funky Blog Hop".  The candy will close at 9 a.m. (GMT) on Friday 4th September.  A winner will be drawn randomly and announced on the new Funky Fairy challenge and on here next Wednesday 9th September.  Now what is the candy you are wondering, well the lucky winner will recieve the above mosaic box which I made for this weeks challenge with some surprises inside.
We do hope you are enjoying the Funky Fairys Blog Hop and it would be wonderful if you took part in our CASE It challenge too, where this week the challenge is also being sponsered by Simon Says Stamp
Enjoy your day!!!
