Week #182 - 'Sweet Summertime'

A HUGE thank you to everyone who submitted such gorgeous projects for the DESIGN TEAM CALL here in the Tea Room!  It was very difficult to choose 'just five new designers' from the loads of inspiration included in all the applications we received.  I will be contacting the new designers this week and we look forward to seeing their lovely creations in the Tea Room beginning on our week #184 challenge! 

Hello shabby friends and welcome to another fun week of inspiration and creativity here in the Tea Room!  This week Lenet is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of 'Sweet Summertime' along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and Lenet asks that you create a card or project inspired by the lovely photo!

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, Karien VanDerWesthuizen!  Karien earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #177 challenge - 'Oh Baby'. 

And some more beautiful inspiration from our September Special MONTH-LONG Guest Designer ... Jill Norwood using the Abigail, Jelly Bean Time and You Make Me Smile stamp sets from Paper Sweeties!

Do you want to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer with the Shabby Girls?  It's as simple as participating in our weekly challenges and WOW-ing us with your projects!  The Shabby Girls might be calling on YOU to be the next Month-Long Guest Designer!!!
