Winning Treasury Challenge #135

 A few words from VivaEstelle...

First of all, I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Nicolas for choosing my T last week. The competition was stiff, I am glad he and I saw eye to eye on the one I created!
Wow, What a touching, dramatic and fun few days! This is the most talented group of people that I have ever seen! I have never cried upon viewing a treasury until this week, and it happened with two different ones. Everyone seems to know exactly what I like, what pushes my buttons, and they gave it to me! Lots of dark, rustic, dramatic, intensely emotional and meaningful representations this week. I hate when a judge says "they are all winners", but now I understand. I have narrowed it down to 22 that could easily win. So, this week there are 21 runner-ups and one winner. I will never be able to compete with Nicolas with his wonderful comments and categories, but here is my attempt:

Don't Blink....for Hannah by Karma of KarmaRox
It took me an entire day before I could even comment on this T. The heart-wrenching, emotional story is probably the best T ever on etsy. Karma, thank you my dear friend for sharing. I hope you can relish in all of the positivity that this community has given you over the last few days. Bravo.....
