This Challenge is now closed, please check back on Sunday for the winner and the new challenge begins on Monday noon eastern ** we have slightly altered our treasury schedule to give more time to people making treasuries - please check here 

A fun treasury challenge, hosted by the LMF Team on Etsy!

Anyone on Etsy can participate! You do NOT have to belong to the team, to participate or win the challenge!

Simply create a treasury featuring the "Inspiration Item" and following the guidelines listed below. If you WIN, something from YOUR shop will be our Inspiration Item next week!

This week's unique Inspiration Item...

The Beautiful Barbie Baby Doll Nightgown & Pillow by BarbieBoutiqueBasics

To Participate...

Read the rules carefully, especially if it's your first time with us!

Create a treasury (or two... or three...) that follows the "Challenge Requirements". The theme can be anything at all, as long as you follow the guidelines. You may create as many treasuries as you'd like and enter as many times as you'd like!

This week's Inspiration Shop will select a winner, at the end of the challenge. The winner is completely up to them! Create the best treasury you can, and maybe... yours will be their favorite!!

You have until 28th July 2011- Thursday noon eastern

Challenge Requirements:
  1. Include this week's Inspiration Item, anywhere in the first 3 rows (NOT as an alternate in the fourth row).
  2. Do NOT include any of your own items, or more than one item from the same shop.
  3. In addition to the Inspiration Item, your treasury must contain at least 3 items that are from the LMF Team members. These "team-related" items can be placed anywhere in the treasury. The theme can be anything you'd like, as long as you include 3 team-related items and the inspiration item! For a list of team members, click here.
  4. While the challenge lasts, be sure to change out any items that disappear from your Treasury! But... Do NOT replace the Inspiration Item if it sells!!
