Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Rebekah is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Monogram Madness' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and Rebekah asks that you create a card or project inspired by the colors in the photo and include a MONOGRAM as your focal point!

Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Lea Lawson - Cupcakes & Sunshine!  Lea earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #131 challenge - 'Creative Candy'.
