Week #97 - 'Gorgeous Gateaux'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Fran is our wonderful host and she has chosen the theme of 'Gorgeous Gateaux' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration ...

... and Fran asks that you create a card or project inspired by the photo and USE GRAY (or silver), LILAC, PEACH & PINK PLUS LACE (paper or fabric) AND A METAL EMBELLISHMENT!

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, Geri Freeman - Geri's Paper Wishes!  Geri earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #85 challenge - 'Happy Halloween'. 

And some more beautiful inspiration from our January Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer ...

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps:
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

Please link your creations below by Sunday, January 22nd to play along. Winner and Tea Time Terrific Top Three will be announced Monday, January 23rd. We will have an all-new challenge for you to play along with on the 23rd as well, so please come back and visit with us again for another chance to win!
