Week #111 - 'April Showers'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Starr is our wonderful host and she has chosen the theme of 'April Showers' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and Starr asks that you create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO and USE LACE or RIBBON plus FLOWERS!

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, Christine Penaflor - Creative Journey!  Christine earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #98 challenge - 'Sparkly & Bright'. 

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