Winning Treasury Challenge #101

Some words from KnotChaCha...

Most importantly I want to thank Michelle of PluffMudDesigns for having chosen "Going to the Night Circus" as the winner of the previous challenge. This honor provided such wonderful experiences as I opened each new treasury to see what all you talented teammates had created. Much gratitude also goes to Sara DeMoss and all the leaders and volunteers of this wonderful team for their hard work and dedication to making this team great. This week, the travelling Sangria Scarf has gone on trips to Italy, Spain, France, San Francisco, the Western United States and the East Coast. It has been such a first-class journey. It's a tour I would book again! Dance, Boho style, Missoni, Autumn, sunsets, and so many other wonderful themes struck a true resonance with me. They provided us all with a high level of inspiration and viewing pleasure. When I first saw the winning treasury, the visceral punch was so intense that the hair stood up on the back of my neck. "Sedona", by Beth Henson of JunkyardGypsy, rocks! It is a collection that warms my blood while simultaneously producing chills upon my skin and a ripple of energy up my spine. Such a magnificent blend it is of glory, mystery, and spice! This treasury emanates the power of fire and spirit. It oozes the passion and intensity of a deep connection with the earth. Its use of the strong combination of black with deeply saturated sunset colors is intoxicating. From the very beginning I was drawn into its vortex and it kept pulling me back for view after view. There were so many top tier treasuries created for this challenge. Heartfelt thanks to you all for participating!
