The Shabby Tea Room #16!

This week we have a totally fun and summery challenge for you all in the Tea Room!  When I think of summer, I think of bright, cheery, fun colors (like ice cream or the rainbow!) and lots of fun activities!  Our Week #16 challenge was inspired by this wonderful photo ...

Isn't it just FABULOUS?!?!  The bright colors just jump right off the page at you ... and ohhhh, those paper pinwheels are yummy!  Our challenge this week is called 'Popsicles and Pinwheels' and I am the lucky host!  We are to create a card or project inspired by this scumptious photo and use hot pink, bright green and turquoise in our designs this week.  How much fun is that???

Here is my creation:

I used lots of 'fun' embellishments in my design including 'Strawberry Shortcake' Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop, a lime green button from a bag-o-buttons I got from an antique show, sparkly rhinestones from Doodlebug, handmade ledger paper roses, fun die cut ric rac paper embellies cut with dies from My Favorite Things and a handmade trinket pin made with bobbles from my stash of jewelry making supplies from years back!  The paper is Delovely from Cosmo Cricket and just called out to me from my supply closet to be used on this challenge ... perfect, don't you think?  Isn't this PI girlie with her lollipop just  the sweetest thing!

Now your turn!!!  Hop on over to your craft space and get playin' around with this bright, fun and cheery color combo!  I know you'll have so much fun creating for this week's totally yummy challenge!!  I can't wait to see what designs you come up with!
