Winning Treasury Challenge #142

Some words from poppyandpurl...

WOW! Just wow…
Somehow I never really expected to *win* the nonteam challenge… to the extent that when I saw an email from Sarah DeMoss last week I opened it without thinking what it might mean :-)

I loved all of the AMAZING treasuries, reading people’s generous comments on others’ treasuries, exploring new items and shops… Choosing one winner was incredibly difficult. After pouring over the entries multiple times, I got down to 25, then 10, then 5 favorites, any of which could have won. In the end, I was swayed by the uniqueness, the freshness, the unexpected greenness of Susan (AKA Maxwell)’s completely fascinating “The Layers”.

HUGE thanks to everyone who took time out during the holiday week to create a treasury with my flower clip, to Sage of SMDesigns for selecting my ode to making music until the end, and ESPECIALLY to Sarah and the other volunteers who make this amazing challenge possible, week after week. Have a fun ride, Susan!!!
