Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Lenet is our wonderful host and she has chosen the theme of 'Beautifully Shaped' along with this gorgeous photo for inspiration and Lenet asks that you create a SHAPED card or project that is also inspired by THE COLORS IN THE PHOTO!  This week we're looking for 'shaped' cards or projects -- NO squares or rectangles this week, please!
