Week #63 - 'Sweet Baby'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week brings Melissa as our FUN host and she has chosen this beautiful photo as inspiration ...

... and asks that we create a card or project with a BABY THEME!  (You need not use the colors in the inspiration photo unless you are inspired by them!)

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 challenge rules will remain in the gallery but will not be eligible for the weekly prizes. Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Heather Hunter - Shabby Shambles!  Tammy earned this Guest Designer spot for her win during Week #53 - 'Party Time'!

And our May Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer is Michelle Bala - My Passion For Crafting!
