I have some exciting news!!!

Hello everyone and happy Monday! If you're looking for my Krazy for Kraft blog hop card, it's just one post down...thanks!

Well, I've been sitting on a bit of happy news for for a while and today, well, technically yesterday, I'm allowed to tell everyone!! Today I am PROUD to announce that I am one of 5 new design team members to be joining The Shabby Tea Room challenge blog On Monday, September 16th!! (insert happy dance here) Can you believe it, me...on a DT, and not just any ole' design team, but The Shabby Tea Room!?!?! There's some seriously amazing talent over there and I feel on top of the world and am so happy to finally be able to share the happy news with all of you. Your sweet comments and the encouragement I gather from them are what gave me the courage to even apply, for that, I thank all you!

To apply I was to send in a little info about myself and my blog along with a card I made based on this inspiration picture...
Here's my card I made and I turned in...

I picked up a lot of elements from the inspiration picture...color palette, clock on the table, gingham pattern, flowers, pearls and even the little circle frames on the chair cushion.

I hope I can hold my own when it comes to working with the rest of the team, I've visited their blogs and boy oh boy are they TALENTED!
