Welcome to the “Frames, Art, and Wall Decor” Challenge


Ok ladies, it’s time to link up your “Frames, Art, and Wall Decor” projects. This is going to be a fabulous challenge and we cannot wait to see what y’all have up your creative little sleeves! Here’s a refresher of the rules.


  1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme.We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week.  All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick.  If your project does not incorporate the theme it will be removed.
  2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.
  3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons.  This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!
  4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)
  5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host.
  6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 5 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
  7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects – we will give you credit  and link back to your blog.

You are welcome to enter as many projects as you like!

{as long as each project has an element of the theme in it}

Kari from U-Create will go through each project and find her personal #1 favorite, plus her top 10.

Jen, Beckie, and Amanda will also choose their favorite projects and award those people with a special button to display on their blogs.

We will select one entry to win a $40 Wonderfully Wordy vinyl lettering gift certificate using Random.org.


It’s time to link up! The link will be up until Thursday at noon (EST).  We will announce the winners of the challenge and the giveaway on Friday!

    Are you sure? We can enter as many as we want? Ask Beckie – I’ve got loads! But I’ll really try & restrain myself to my absolute fav’s.

  10. I don’t know if I will ever get away from my computer now…it is addicting to see all the beautiful things everyone has done. Plus when you go to their blog, there are many other blogs I end up visiting! It is a domino effect. I do not know how in the hec you will pick a winner…I know I couldn’t. I hope this closes soon..because eventually I need to get back to my own projects and family and stop browsing all these wonderful links 🙂

    This has GOT to be the best one yet. I always try to be a good player and leave 5 comments, as requested. I think I’m up to at least 10 now! Such GREAT stuff! Thanks for hosting this contest.

    Is anyone else’s title getting chopped off? It’s happened two or three times, now. (This time, on my #221 entry: Olan Mills to “Oh, My!”) Is it because of the quotation marks…?
