Week #61 - 'Ruffled Up'

Hello my shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week brings Danielle as our lovely host and she has chosen this beautiful photo as inspiration ...



... and asks that we create a card or project based on the inspiration photo and use RUFFLES!  You can make ruffles from ribbon or paper or trims ... whatever inspires you!  (You need not use the colors in the inspiration photo unless you feel inspired by them).

Note: Because we are sponsored weekly by wonderful businesses who have graciously donated products and in the interest of fairness to all participants, any entries that do not follow our simple challenge rules will remain in the gallery but will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for your understanding and participation!


I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Terri Moore - Life With Terri!  Terri earned this Guest Designer spot for her win during Week #51 - Classic Elegance!




And our May Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer is Michelle Bala - My Passion For Crafting!




Do you want to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer with the Shabby Girls?  It's as simple as participating in our weekly challenges and WOW-ing us with your projects!  The Shabby Girls might be calling on YOU to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer!!!

All these projects are so beautiful! I love all the ruffles and ribbons. Since pink is my favourite colour, they are all so yummy to me.
Thank you for sharing them! :)
