A Challenging Theme!

Today is the final day of November's challenge week! The holidays are upon us, so we picked a fun theme to go along with this event; Holiday Baking. Each of the participants must create a treasury using a favorite holiday recipe. All of the titles will be recipes and the content of the treasury must represent the recipe either in colors or ingredients.

There will be some great prizes available for this day as well and all of the winners for the challenge will be revealed on Friday morning.

I am so happy to announce that we have another team on Etsy helping us with the judging today! A huge THANK YOU goes out to the W.E.S.T Winnipeg Etsy Street Team! We appreciate your help so much! Please visit their shops here; http://www.etsy.com/teams/5032/west-winnipeg-etsy-street-team
