Week #109 - 'Birthday Bash'

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

... and Rebekah asks that you create a BIRTHDAY card or project inspired by the photo and INCLUDE A CUPCAKE!

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, Andrea Ewen - Ewen Style!  Andrea earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #97 challenge - 'Gorgeous Gateaux'. 

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