Winning Treasury Challenge #119

Some words from 636designs...
When Sarah messaged me, to tell me I had won...I asked her "are you sure you have the right person?" I was honestly shocked and surprised! I want to thank Stephanie from LaCocoRouge for choosing my treasury, and allowing me the
opportunity to judge all of your amazing work this week!! I'd also like to thank Sarah so much, for all her help!! I'm so honored to be a part of this group, and I'm amazed every week by the extreme talent that oozes out of all of you!!

You guys took my little Pocket Watch Necklace on some amazing adventures!! From time travels to the past and into the future, down the country back roads, through romance and music, and love and loss. An adventure on the high seas, several trips down the rabbit hole with Alice...and even a quest for world domination! Some were melancholy, some were sweet...and some were really quirky and funny! All of them seemed well thought out, had obviously taken time and effort to create, and were very much appreciated by me :) It was really hard to eliminate so many of them...but in the end, there was one that I just loved from the moment I saw it....

My pick for winner of this week's challenge is: "The Tin Man Gets His Heart" by DonnaWalker

Her "mostly" black and white version of The Tin Man and Oz was amazing to look at and dissect!! I've never seen this story visually depicted this way, and I loved it! It had this dark, quirky vibe that I couldn't get enough of! From the heart soap suds, the girl in the fog, to the witches was perfect. Even the "fantasy couture ring" looked just like OZ to me! Congrats Donna, you deserve it :)

Thanks to all of you who participated this week! I was honored to be your judge! xoxo
