Week #34 - 'Country Kitchen'

Week #34 in the Tea Room brings Cathy as our host and she has chosen this absolutely gorgeous photo of a beautiful, vintage kitchen as inspiration for us to work with ...

... and Cathy asks us all to create a card or project inspired by anything in this picture!  Maybe you'll be inspired by the colors, maybe the layout sparks your creativity ... maybe you love the theme of the photo.  You may use one or all of the inspiration ideas for your card or project.  Let your creativity flow ... we can't wait to see what you design for the Tea Room this week!

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 guidelines (listed on the sidebar) will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for understanding and playing along!

Please take a moment to help me welcome our Guest Designer this week, the talented Lenet Mos! Lenet earned this Guest Designer Spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #26 - "Tag You're It" challenge. Please stop by her blog and leave her a bit of shabby {love}!  Look at the shabby and vintage set that Lenet has created for our Tea Room challenge this week ...
