Week #14 - 'Summer Fun'

Create a card or project showing how you like to enjoy some FUN IN THE SUN!!!  Get creative, we want to see your best work and lots of fun inspiration for us all to enjoy in the Tea Room this week :)

Note:  you must use the Week #14 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 submission for this challenge and not your entire blog or multiple project submissions.  Questions?  Contact me!

I am very pleased to introduce you all to our Guest Designer this week here in the Tea Room, GERI FREEMAN!  I am such a fan of Geri's lovely shabby and vintage creations!  Geri earned this Guest Design spot for being our Week #6 Winner - 'Sketch This'!  I simply {adore} Geri's beautiful blossoms made with Shabby Vintage Seam Binding ... and she did a tutorial for us that you can find here!  Shabby Vintage Seam Binding available in 15 wonderful, shabby colors found here!  Please take a minute to visit Geri's blog and leave her some love with a sweet comment!

Geri Freeman - Paper Wishes

This is a very bittersweet week here in the Tea Room.  We are saying a final farewell to our lovely Jill Hilliard who will be resigning from The Shabby Tea Room Design Team at the end of Week #14.  I know I speak from the heart when I say that we all have enjoyed seeing Jill's wonderful creations over the past 14 weeks and she has offered us all such inspiration with her lovely designs!!  We will miss you Jill!

Saying goodbye to Jill is the bitter part ... but, with change brings opportunity!!  The sweet part is the fact that our current Design Team call is well underway with so many GORGEOUS submissions!  Hurry, you still have until midnight EST on June 16th to submit a design for consideration.  Check back here Thursday morning -- I'll be announcing TWO brand new DT Members for us all to be inspired by!!  I wish I could pick you ALL ... but unfortunately we only have spots available now for two.  Stay tuned  -- our current DT positions end in September, so we'll be adding to the Shabby Girls DT again this fall!

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