Week #162 - 'Pretty Shabby'

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Tracey is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Pretty Shabby' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and Tracey asks that you create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO AND USE A RECYCLED ITEM - let us know what your recycled item is!

FOR YOUR SUBMISSION TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE WEEKLY PRIZE AND HONORS: 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 and top honors. Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Kristi Schurr!  Kristi earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #151 challenge - 'Cute As A Button'. 

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