Week #75 - 'Polka Dots'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Melissa is our host, and she has chosen the FUN theme of 'Polka Dots'!  Melissa asks that we use this cute picture as inspiration ...

... and use POLKA DOTS!  Easy Peesy!!!  (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, Julie Malcolm - Julie's Inkspot!  Julie earned this Guest Designer spot for her win during Week #65 - 'Technique Week'! 

And our August Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer ... please welcome Andrea Ewen - Ewen Style!

I'm Adela and I live in sunny Southern California with my husband and our two teenage girls! Crafting has been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I love to sew, crochet, knit, draw, paper craft, stamp... I love anything related to crafting! With encouragement from many people, my love of paper crafting in 3D has led me to open an online shop which allows me to share some of my template designs. I feel so blessed and I truly believe that God has given everyone their own special talents and it is our privilege to share it with others.
Our lucky Tea Room winner this week will win two templates of their choice from Creations by AR!

Link your creations below by Sunday, August 21st to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, August 22nd. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 22nd as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
