Formally known as 'Let's Get Shabby' since 2009.
Times have changed and many of us have found our styles have too.

Is a TWO part challenge.

Part 1
Is all about being inspired by one of these two gorgeous kitchens.

Kitchen 1

Kitchen 2

Remember when posting your creation,

you need to tell us which kitchen you were cooking in.

Part 2
Seeing as cooking is what one would normally do in a kitchen we have a recipe of sorts for you to follow.

Here is the ingredients you will need to have on your project.

One piece of fabric
Two die cut shapes
Thee colours from your chosen kitchen. (These will need to be your dominant colours)


Here is the most amazing prize you could win!!!
from our Sponsor this month

Maxine's Melange

And here is what the Shabby girls came up with.

And from our Sponsor and Guest DTer

Maxine is inspired by

Kitchen 2(You can check out this as a kit (and others) at Maxine's Melange)

Well there you have it.

Hope you like what the Design Team have cooked up

and we can't wait to see what you do!!

(And fairly soon, more detail and close-ups will appear on each DTers blogs and on Maxine's Melange )
