Enjoy the Moment in The Play Date Cafe

It's hard to believe another week has come and gone
and come back around once again!
What am I talking about?

The Play Date Cafe Challenge, of course!

Look at this gorgeous color story!!!

I am the host this week and I just have to
say that this inspiration would not exist
without the kindness of a dear friend
of mine here in my hometown.
Polly owns a wonderful business and a
blog that holds the same name
where she specializes in all things
vintage and shabby chic.
I've always loved the look and try to bring
it into my home as often as I can, 
but this girl is the master!!!
I hope you will pop over to her lovely blog and
bring a cup of tea with you!

All week I thought about making something with a whole lot of
layers, flowers, lace, name it.
But as you can see, I went clean and simple.

You would not believe what is waiting for you over in The Cafe!

We have the fabby Kazan Clark 
as our Guest Designer this week
and the most amazing inspiration from our entire design team.

and of course, our honored guest...
Kazan Clark

 So glad you stopped by and I hope you'll 
leave a quick little note to let me know
you were here : )

Julie, I love the simplicity of this card. The tiny script on the side of the card really is so sweet, and that Twinery twine is divine! (like my rhyme?)

I'm going to visit your friend's blog to see her shop. From our inspiration pics this week, it looks like a place I'd love to frequent if I were closer!

Bring your favorite magazines to the i - Phone with an i - Phone app.
It’s interesting how stars get annoyed when the paparazzi takes pictures
of them. As a consequence it can be contended the media is directing many persons astray
moving away from what should be its aim of presenting discerning
news and analytic thinking of pressing topics
for this celebrity frippery.
