Thanks for your understanding and participation!

I am pleased to introduce you all to this week's Guest Designer, Julie Price!  Julie earned this Guest Designer spot for her win in the Tea Room during the Week #228 challenge - 'Sweet Shabby Flowers'.

***A couple changes to announce***
Beginning with this week's new challenge, we are now going to BI-WEEKLY challenges here in the Tea Room.  We will bring you new challenges on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month.  We will have two sponsors per challenge and will be choosing TWO winners at the end of each bi-weekly challenge -- double the fun, double the prizes!  Play along as many times as you want ... the more you play, the more chances you have to WIN!

And, for another chance to get crafty for a chance to win a shopping spree to the Paper Sweeties boutique, play along with the September Inspiration Challenge --we're looking for PUMPKINS this month ...

And ... here is the board for the October Paper Sweeties challenge - 'Happy Fall':

 The Shabby Girls are pleased to welcome our sponsors - Bugaboo Stamps and Digital Papers by Janet Etsy!

Sponsor #1:

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT  for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

Sponsor #2:

My name is Janet, I'm Polish, live in the south of Italy and the mother of two children!!  I am a printing technician by profession, but an artist by passion.  I really like to draw and photograph everything with my camera. I am in love with old graphics and illustrations, and I always have my colored markers and pencils around me to sketch with.  I'm so happy to be sponsoring this week's Tea Room challenge!

Tea Time Terrific Top Three first place winner will receive three collage files.
Tea Time Terrific Top Three second place winner will receive two collage files.
Tea Time Terrific Top Three third place winner will receive one collage file.
