Winning Treasury Challenge #105

Some works from ChatteJolie...

Well…. I’ll start by saying that I agonized over the inspiration item this time around. I picked that frothy pink dress and then immediately regretted it. What can I say… I worried that I would get a lot of... well… pink treasuries. But I should never have doubted this team – you guys do pink – but different. I was delighted and entranced and sometimes even misty eyed with every treasury I opened. What a tremendous gift you all have given me. Fairy tales, and masquerades, bank robberies and mystery dates. There were many wedding days and fantasy trips to Paris and Venice. And there were cats!!! (My favorite thing).

So after a thoroughly enjoyable challenge how do I pick just one? Don’t know. I just had to let the dress decide.

So this week’s winner is…

Joanne Poore’s Venetian Dreams (aka ‘The Frog Prince’)

Her colors were perfect. The pink and gilt opulence was well balanced with the charming little fairy tale touches (I really fell in love with the frog – look at him he’s almost glowing!) - It was just right for that pink cupcake of a dress.
Thank you.
