Week #208 - 'Pretty Polka Dots'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week I am our creative host and I have chosen the theme of 'Pretty Polka Dots' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration!   I ask that you create a card or project inspired by the photo and INCLUDE POLKA DOTS!

FOR YOUR SUBMISSION TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE WEEKLY PRIZE AND HONORS: 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 and top honors. Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Lenet Mos!  Lenet earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #204 challenge - 'All That Glitters in Love'.

And some more beautiful inspiration from our March Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer - please help me welcome the talented Melody Rupple!
