Congratulations to Jen over at PoleStar for her winning Elite 16 Style Guide collection Last Trip to the Lake House! Can't you just feel the cool air of fall moving in as the warm days of summer come to an end? The rustic wood, the sunrise over the lake and even the musty smell of a lakeside cabin can be found here - beautiful! The theme for our challenge was "Preserving the Summer" and we loved the story that Jen's treasury evoked.
As the winner, an item from Jen's shop will be used in next week's challenge - watch for the next round come August 26th! We'll be announcing the next theme prior to the challenge.
Now, you don't think it was easy - right? There were a total of 38 treasuries submitted to the challenge and each and every one was thoughtfully curated. Highlighted below are 2 honorable mentions.
We loved the creative use of the theme The Perseids - a meteor shower signaling the end of summer - in this collection above by Jen at Palimpsestic. Who wouldn't want to grab a blanket and head out for some good ol' fashion stargazing?
The treasury collection below Linger Summer Sunset by Laura at KitzieG captures the beautiful colors of a summer's end sunset with wam peach and green tones. Mixed with bontanical motifs and fading light - summer gracefully retreats into fall.
A BIG thank you to all members who participated - we look forward to seeing what wonderful creations you come up with for the next challenge!!!
