Winning Treasury Challenge #100

Some words from PuffMudDesigns...

First I would like to thank Karma (KarmaRox) for having selected "A vivid restless captive" as the winner of last week's challenge! I am so happy that Jane Eyre "spoke to her"! Also, many thanks to Sarah, and the amazing leaders of the NonTeamChallenge Team!

I am so thankful for the time and creative energy you all spent on your fabulous treasuries! How one little bracelet could inspire such a tremendous variety of treasuries is amazing! How can one choose from such an array - lime green retro, modern Halloween, creepy, haunting, romantic, wedding, artists, vintage, clouds, writers, murderers, cats, stars, urbanscapes, tea parties, black swans, Baroque, chess, vampires, autumn...

I knew I had my work cut out for me but it was much more difficult then I could have imagined. I won't bore you with the detailed methods to my madness but I took this very seriously and I plotted, diagramed, cross-referenced, etc.

As I painfully whittled down the list (brutally painful) I kept returning to a few over and over and over again. It became a back and forth ping pong "game" between several top contenders.

Finally, knowing I had to "pull the trigger", I took a deep breathe and selected....."Going to the Night Circus" by Sharon of Knotchacha.
