Week #5 - 'It's Hip To Be Square'

Using this Vintage Quilt photo for inspiration, create a card or project using squares ... lots of them ... the more the better! (You do not have to use the colors in this photo).

Note: You must use the Week #5 challenge requirements and DIRECT LINK your project back to The Shabby Tea Room in order to be considered for the weekly prizes. Please only link your card or project POST and not your entire blog or multiple project submissions. We love all of your lovely work, but will only consider those designs that have been properly submitted and linked for prizes in fairness to all. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.




I am pleased to introduce this week's Guest Designer that will be playing along with us ... I first had the pleasure of seeing some of DANA GUSTAFSON'S wonderful creations when I became a follower of the Just Us Girls Blog last fall. Dana's work is beautiful and I adore the bright and cheery attitude she brings to her paper crafting! She always takes the time to leave such sweet comments and is always extremely encouraging. Please take some time to hop on over to Dana's blog when you have a chance this week and check out all the fabulous inspiration and creativity she has to offer!
