Week #71 - ' So Charming'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Pattie is our talented host, she has chosen the theme of 'So Charming' and asks that we create a card or project using this gorgeous photo for inspiration ...

... and use a CHARM!  (You need not use the colors from the inspiration picture 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, Lea Lawson - Lea's Cupcakes and Sunshine!  Lea earned this Guest Designer spot for her win during Week #61 - 'Ruffled Up'! 

And our June Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer is Tammy Roberts - Paperie Sweetness!

Do you want to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer with the Shabby Girls?  It's as simple as participating in our weekly challenges and WOW-ing us with your projects!  The Shabby Girls might be calling on YOU to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer!!!
