Winning Treasury - Challenge #18

Some words from shrimpsaladcircus......
Fellow treasury-fiends,

I cannot tell you how much fun I had being the 18th Treasury Challenge Non Team inspiration shop! You guys got us to the front page THREE times - unbelievable! My shop views and hearts absolutely skyrocketed, and I sold out of the Cupid's Arrow rings! This has been the biggest bump in business that I've seen in a very long time, and I have all you guys to thank for it.

I had a really difficult decision to make as the judge in this go 'round. I think that all said and done, there were over 130 treasuries, and I had a whole pile of favorites tagged by the end of it all. I loved the variety of themes and color palettes, as well. It's amazing to see how many things a group of artistic people can do with the same inspiration piece!

After much thought, inner torment, and an entire jar of Nutella, I finally selected a winner. Valerie K Studio managed to capture my current mood perfectly with her collection - soft and airy golden tones with just the most occasional little pop of faint color. It's all so beautiful and earthy, and the soothing setup is just what I needed in the midst of writing my Master's thesis!

I can't thank you all enough for all the thoughtful, creative, and inspired collections you put together. You guys really did make my week and weekend better with all the happy, fun treasuries I got to browse and all the exciting things they did for my shop! I can't wait to get started with the next one, using one of Valerie's pieces!

Best wishes,
Lindsay {Shrimp}
