Winning Treasury - Challenge #11

Some words from KitzieG......

I felt immensely priveleged to win challenge 10, and was especially delighted as my treasury drew on a lot of personal influences, both from the area where I grew up, and from some of my favourite literature and music. And of course, it gives me the wonderful delight of judging this week's challenge - which represents some of the most beautiful and inspiring treasuries I have honestly ever seen. It's a real honour to have my postcards included in such gorgeous works of art.

Given it's the festive season and many of you will have been busy celebrating with friends and family, I'm very impressed that we received as many entries as we did! And so, with the holidays upon us, I write this from a tiny little internet cafe, high up in the snowy Swiss mountains, looking out across some wonderful views.

Needless to say it has been incredibly difficult to land on a single treasury as winner, as every single one wowed me with beauty, inspiration, thought and creativity. The treasury I have selected particularly stood out in its seamlessly balanced colour palette, impressive composition, and mix of old and new. Every picture had an intriguing story to tell, and as a whole, the treasury created an atmosphere that I wanted to be a part of.

So with that, I introduce to you this week's winner:

Wow!!! Thank you so much for choosing me and saying such kind words about my treasury KitzieG!

I am a bit sad that the first red and white dress has disappeared from Etsy. I haven't been able to find something as appropriate to replace it.
