Week #10 - Stars & Stripes!

With Memorial Day right around the corner, we here in the Tea Room decided to do a Red, White & Blue and/or stars & stripes theme this week!  Nicole is our cutie pie host and here is the photo she has chosen for us all to be inspired by:

We're excited to see your creations this week inspired by this photo ... use Red, White & Blue for your theme, use stars and/or stripes ... or use BOTH!!!  Have fun with our challenge this week :)

Note:  You must use the Week #9 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.  Questions?  Contact me!

I am very happy to introduce you all to our talented GUEST DESIGNER this week - Linda Coughlin, The Funkie Junkie!  I fell in love with and began following Linda's work when she started participating in the weekly challenges here in the Tea Room!  Her lovely, shabby and vintage style just catches my eye each and every week and takes my breath away!  Linda was the winner of our Week #2 Challenge - 'Spring Inspired' and use stitching which you can view here!   Please take some time and flip through the pages on Linda's fabulous blog ... so much goodness there!!  And here is her submission this week for 'Stars & Stripes' ...

And now some more inspiration from our Design Team Members ...
