TSTR week 28 - School Days & Welcome To Our New Shabby Girls!

Welcome Back Students - School is now in session!
Can you guess the theme this week in The Shabby Tea Room?
Yes we are back to school and I've officially regained my title of "Mom's Taxi Service"!
Oh well, at least I've only got another 12 years of taxi duty! 
Oy Vey!
Ok, so thanks to our very own talented shabby girl Cathy, we were challenged to make a card or project with a school theme.  Here is the inspiration photo:

Our generous sponsor this week in the Tea Room is:

Digi Doodle Shop is the result of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started just a couple of months ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to over 250 stamps - now available.

Digi Doodle Shop has generously supplied the Shabby Girls with a complimentary image to design with and I chose the Clutch Purse Set.  It was quite a challenge to incorporate those beautiful purses into a school theme but then I remembered that Teachers are part of the whole back to school theme and presto, it came to me.  Classy purses - Classy Teachers and voila - "Teachers Have Class"

Please don't forget to visit the other DT members and see what they have come up with this week for your viewing pleasure!  We happen to have some of the most talented designers on the web.... I'm just sayin'

Oh yeah and speaking of DT members, would you officially help me welcome our 2 newest Shabby Girls!
*****************Drumroll Please******************


These 2 ladies have been loyal Shabby Tea Room followers for a very long time now and they are going to make a lovely addition to our little team!  They both have a unique vintage and shabby style and their work is just gorgeous!  I know you will help me in giving them a warm welcome to the team!
And don't forget the rest of the team:

Debbie Marcinkiewicz - {TSTR Creator} - Simple Treasures
Cathy Clark-Santie - Papier Girl
Nicole Segnere - My Craft Room Creations

Sadly though, we are saying goodbye this week to 2 of our DT members as their term is up.
Audrey Pettit - Audrey Pettit's Weblog
Melissa Hubert - My Paper Obsession
Audrey and Melissa we will miss you but we are sure that you will frequent the Tea Room as often as you can and share a cup of tea with us!  Audrey and Melissa have been with Debbie in the Tea Room since it's inception and I have been honored to design along side of them! 

Whew!!  I think I got it all in!  All that's left to say now is have an awesome week and don't forget to show us your school projects!
