Treasury Challenge #8 Winner!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Alpaca team's 8th treasury challenge! I hope everybody had fun and I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

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

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

I was so flattered that I got a chance to do this, especially since it was my first time submitting to the team. Then one of the submissions landed on the front page! I got double flattered by this challenge.

You guys did not make this easy for me. There were beautiful color palettes, creative motifs, and great themes.

Finally this week's Winning Treasury is:

I loved the bright pinks and yellows, the grandness in the small, and how it almost made me appreciative that is summer year round in south Florida.

But, there was something about this treasury that I couldn't put my finger on. I mean, duh, it's gorgeous and well put together, but then it hit me: almost all items featured are symmetrical when folded in half vertically, but not horizontally. it's sort of asymmetry in symmetry.

And, in no particular order, the beautiful Honorable Mentions are:

Its gonna be a bright, bright sun shiny day!

This or That or the Other Thing by pamelasjewelry
Citrusy Delicious! by BabyBirdBuilt
Golden Blues by mrsnepsy
Raspberry Lemonade by doolshandmade

Thank you, again, for the honor and opportunity (and a little hair pulling). I can't wait to see the lovely item to inspire us from AlpacaYarnShop and the amazing treasuries you'll all make!

Thank you, thank you, thank you,

Congratulations to AlpacaYarnShop and all the honorable mentions!!
The next challenge will begin... Tuesday, June 7th at noon Eastern!
