Meet the {newest} SHABBY GIRLS!

First, I must say a big and shabby, heartfelt THANK YOU to the nearly 40 talented paper crafters that took the time to create beautiful designs for submission to the Tea Room's latest Design Team Call.  We received nearly 40 stunning creations ... making our job very hard to narrow the field down to just TWO new Shabby Girls!

We so appreciate your time and talents ... and your willingness to share your creativity with others who share your passion for paper crafting.  This truly is a wonderful community that we all are fortunate enough to be a part of.  I consider myself very lucky and blessed to have such wonderful friends all over the world to craft with every day -- it doesn't get much better than this!  I so enjoyed visiting each and every one of your blogs to pour over your designs and was inspired to read over your follow up bio applications.  We had such a variety of paper crafting expertise levels ... from beginners to seasoned pros!  Each one of you are WINNERS in my book!

The Shabby Girls also wanted me to extend their heartfelt thanks for your lovely submissions ... they all really enjoyed spending time perusing through your blogs!  We here in the Tea Room just adore our followers and enjoy creating alongside you all each week!  Such a fun spot for inspiration, creativity ... and FUN :)

Okay, so with all that said, it was next to impossible to narrow the field of nearly 40 applications down to just two, so we are doing something a bit different this time around!  We've added a fun little {twist} to allow not only the two newest Shabby Girls join the team ... but we've invited an additional SIX designers to join us as well as Weekly Guest Designers ... and introducing a brand new program to begin in March - MONTH-LONG GUEST DESIGNERS!
