Week #3 - "Lets Get Scrappy"

The Week #3 Challenge in the Tea Room is entitled "Let's Get Scrappy" - create a card or project using 'scraps' of any kind. This one should prove to be a fun one for everyone to give a try! Here is a photo I found for inspiration -- you do not have to use these colors. Have fun ... I can't wait to see your creativity blossom this week :)

NOTE: You must use the Week #3 challenge requirements AND direct link your card/project back to The Shabby Tea Room in order to be considered for the weekly prizes! Please only link to your project and not your entire blog. If you have questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact me.

I am so happy to introduce our Guest Designer for the week #3 challenge - none other than the fabulous MELISSA PHILLIPS! I have enjoyed following Melissa's blog for the past few years and love to start my mornings there! I grab a cup of coffee and sit down for a visit in Melissa's shabby and beautiful blog ... she is such an inspiration for us all. Her paper crafting is absolutely some of the most beautiful work that I've seen in my travels and her blog is such a pleasure to read -- I enjoy all the sweet stories of her family adventures, the love she has for her precious little girl and the yummy recipes she is kind enough to share with us all - oh my, the homemade breads :) Please hop on over to Melissa's blog when you have a minute and check out her scrumptious and shabby creations ... simply {sweet}!

The DT did a wonderful job and were a great inspiration. I have so many scraps, that I could probably do cards for months if I didn't want to use my new papers.

I'm 2amscrapper and my blog is LOTSA SCRAP so you know I had to enter this week's challenge to use scraps. Mine was an old sheer ribbon I cut up and used for a bow.
Love your inspiration.
