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

Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Padoriaa (Paulina)!  Paulina earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #183 challenge - 'Time Flies'.
