Some words from AwakenJournaling......
This was SO difficult to judge! Throughout the competition I kept a list of the treasuries that wowed me-- and when it came judging time, that list was 30 entries long!
Unfortunately I can't pick 30 winners so instead of judging them on how stunning they were, I decided to pick one that, to me, had a unique theme. That was hard too, because there was so much creativity!
There were many wonderful themes... we had treasuries about song writers and their journals, Sherlock Holmes, Hemingway, mustard, world travel, secrets, skeleton keys, love letters, pistachio, caramel, autumn, a cozy day on the couch, leather, a journey, Alice in wonderland, skeletons in the closet, fairytales, sleepy hollow, skin, reading, Benjamin Franklin, even a treasury that played with the word "key"-- with a donkey, monkey, piano key, etc.!
I finally chose FlutterbyeNote's treasury, "The Clue in the Locked Journal" because I loved her idea of looking at each item as a clue to a mystery. The items are beautiful and it was really fun to consider each one as part of a larger story.
This has been so fun! Thank you so much to everyone who played! There were 7 pages o treasuries and I looked at every one :)
I loved being a part of so many lovely, unique, and creative collections!
