Challenge #51 - Happy Birthday "Fab'n'Funky"

VERY LONG POST but please read to the end!

Many thanks for everyone for participating in last weeks challenge and we all love visiting your blogs - were else could we get so much crafty inspiration for our projects !!!

Now we have a great, talented new GDT for this week, so please say HUGE HELLO to Amanda . . who probably didn't realise she'd be sharing the blog hop post . . . hee, hee, hee! Please stop by her blog and give her a warm welcome.

Now this week is a VERY SPECIAL week as Fab'n'Funky Challenges is . . . 1 . . . so we are having a big

to celebrate and we would love to see you all come to our party. So this weeks challenge theme is simply . . .

B I R T H D A Y !

All we ask this week is that you make a birthday themed card/scrapbook page/book/altered item . . etc etc and link to your project. If you join in the blog hop as well as the challenge you will get 2 entries to the Fab'n'Funky Birthday Challenge Draw this week . . . all the details are below.

The DT have been beavering away at their birthday projects to share with you and you will find a little birthday present on each of the DT's blogs as our way to say thank you for all your support in the last year. So what do you have to do we hear you wonder . . . simply visit each of the DT and collect a LETTER from their blog. Now this could be hidden amongst the text on their birthday post or just simply given to you . . . you'll have to wait and see. Once you have all the letters, unscramble them to form a phrase and then leave a comment in the comments section on this blog. We are putting comment moderation on this week so that everybody has a fair chance of winning loads of birthday prizes.

On the challenge blog, we have fab prizes from the following very generous sponsors:

Fantastic Ribbons

The Fab'n'Funky DT are also offering birthday prizes from lots of very generous companies on their blogs and the running order for the blog hop is as follows:

To reiterate: each Fab'n'Funky DT member is also giving away a prize as well as a letter (which you need to collect). Visit each DT blog (as shown above) and see their birthday project, collect the letter and then leave a comment on their blog to be eligible for their draw. REMEMBER you need to come back here and enter the unscrambled phrase in the comments section to be eligible to win one of the prizes on offer on the challenge blog . . . phew, we hope that all makes sense!!!

The challenge blog is also giving away 2 letters which is a part of the birthday themed phrase this week - can you guess what letters they might be?

Now the order to visit the DT is as follows:

Challenge blog
(1st letter shown as a "cold colour" !)
allenge blog
(to collect your last letter w
hich is a "hot colour"! )

. . . . and you will need to visit all the blogs to get all your letters. If you have any further questions, just email and we will endeavour to assist. Please also note that all the posts have been set to "go live" at 09:00 GMT but as the DT is worldwide, some of their posts might not show at time . . . please be patient. All DT links can be found on this post and in the side bar . . . .

so have FUN and enjoy the birthday hop as there
are 15 different prizes to be won t
his week!
