A HUGE shabby thank you to everyone for being so supportive of our shabby little challenge blog!!! We received 122 OUTSTANDING cards and projects for our 'Buttons and Bows' challenge this week - and the Shabby Girls enjoyed peeking at each and every single one of them!! We also would like to recognize and thank our 1,014 FABULOUS FOLLOWERS for peeking and joining in on the weekly challenges! We {heart} you all in the Tea Room so very much!!!  We set a goal to reach 1,000 followers by our 1st Birthday Bash Celebration and, thanks to all of you sweeties, we reached this goal two weeks early - WOW!  How this shabby little challenge blog has grown in just 11 1/2 months :)

Keep peeking in ... we are T-minus 2 weeks until our big FIRST BIRTHDAY BASH!! We're lining up sponsors to join us and will have a very special birthday celebration challenge for you all to play along with during Week #53 - March 14, 2011!  It'll be such a fun celebration that you won't want to miss - nearly 20 sponsors to date have signed up to partner with us for the Birthday Bash - WOW!
