Funky Fairys CASE it Challenge + Blog Hop

We have a really special celebratory week here in the Funky Fairys Camp :-) The 2 Funky Fairy DT's have joined together so now the Shop DT and the Challenge DT are all one big happy family :-) We are all getting to know each other and have spent many an evening together in the DT blog ,,, sharing jokes and having a celebratory tipple or 2 !! :-) lol
So without further ado,,,,

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 Funky Fairys 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 Fairys Papercrafts (via the Inspiration Blog) . . . we will check you know!

Here is my project :-) The template for the box is from Papertrey Inc This is called 'From the Desk of and you can see it here
I will be filling it up with cards, a notebook and other bits n bobs and giving as a Xmas gift to someone special :-)

And here's Jilly's project that I CASE'd :-) isn't it fantastic !! :-)

Now you have just left LANA'S blog & already got their letter but please don't forget to collect my letter which is "U". At this point you should have 14 letters. The next blog you need to pop over & visit is The Blog Of Inspiration. If you have not collected all the previous letters, please pop back to the beginning of our blog hop over on the Inspiration Blog.

There is lots of fabby candy along the way and the added prize of a Funky Fairys Download !! ON TOP OF THIS There is the usual prize for those entering the challenge of a Funky Fairys Papercrafts download AND a fabulous Simon Says Stamp Simply The Best Sentiment set donated by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp Store Fabulous eh !! :-)

As if those prizes aren't enough I will be giving one lucky hopper this little blog candy :-)

Heidi very kindly sent me 2 of these fab Simon Says Clear Stamps TERRA'S PENGUINS HAVE STYLE
and has given me permission to incluse it with my other bits of candy that you can see here :-) I will close this candy at 9PM UK time this coming Friday so good luck to everyone :-)

The blog candy is now closed :-)I will be drawing a winner later today. Thank you to everyone for joining the hop and for entering my candy draw,,, good luck to everyone :-)

Max said...

I think this has got to be one of my favourite projects so far. Stunning and a wonderful gift idea.
Now I know for a fact that those penguins want to come and live with me here in Bonnie Scotland LOL!
My favourite download ... hmmm tricky!
Well the favourite one that I have on my PC is Distressing Vines, but my favourite out of all the collections has got to be the new Shabby Christmas and although I don't have it yet I intend to remedy that very soon.


Jackie said...

Gorgeous set, what a lovely present for one very lucky recipient. Great colour combo :o)

my5bratz said...

what a fab idea, looks great :0)

Avril Ann said...

Lorraine this has been FAB, love your CASE project, what a lot off work, but so worth it. Now what to choose for my is so hard to decide as everyone has had fantastic projects...going back to the beginning, if I can just work out the phrase....LOL. This has been my very 1st hop, they are usually held at the weekend, and with my mad peace if you know what I mean, but they are all at work and school....Hugs Avril xxxx

Crafty Dawn said...

Beautiful love yr case job ;-) off to the nxt blog then hop hop hop

Max said...

** You can just delete this message after reading**

Hi Lorraine,
LOL ... at "start again" LOL.
The reason I pointed out about going back to the beginning is that the last letter is missing. Your letter is 'U' and then it is back to 'B'
Obviously, I guessed what it was and posted my phrase but there's no link to the last letter.
Hope I'm making sense LOL!
