Treasury Challenge #3 Winner!!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Alpaca team's 3rd treasury challenge! I hope you all had fun, and I can't wait to see what you come up with next week!

Below is this week's winner, chosen by GrandmasCrochetCotta.

Here's what GrandmasCrochetCotta had to say about the challenge and the treasuries!

Wow, what a fun week of checking out all the amazing alpacateam treasuries! At first I thought I'd check in once a day, but I found myself returning again and again to see what the next creative treasury had in store... they were truly wonderful. Then, I remembered I had to pick "A" winner. It was really tough!

I want to thank all participants for your thoughtful creativity around my french vanilla chain link cowl. I appreciate the time and effort I know went into the creation of each and every treasury!

After MUCH looking and re-looking and looking again, I finally chose as this week's winning treasury...

The name depicted the wonderful accent color choices so beautifully and the general appearance of the treasury was clean and crisp. Well done Barefoot Bananas!

And, it's my pleasure to acknowledge the lovely runner-up treasuries. Each of the following ranked 2nd. There was a 5-way tie!

Honeycombs by Cozy Noggin, for its wonderfully portrayed theme;
Warm and Fuzzy Feeling by Tania Cavenecia Torres' Design in Jewelry, for depicting warm and fuzzy so beautifully;
Buttercream Wedding Dream by Acorn Alley Designs, for its delicious story;
Alpaca Farm by Baymut, for its country comfort appeal; and
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes by Alpaca Flats, for making me smile over and over.

A special thanks to our 1000 Things Alpaca Treasury Challenge captain, WellCriated, for supporting this week's challenge with 8 inspiring treasuries!

Can't wait to see what this week's inspiration item will be...!

Kind regards,

Congratulations to BarefootBananas and all the honorable mentions!!
The next challenge will begin... Monday, May 2nd!
