Treasury Challenge- Who Won September and How you Can Win in October

The first California Crafters Club of Etsy Treasury Challenge for September kicked us off in high gear. We had all kinds of treasuries on the theme of "Halloween". Some of us went for the cute and autumnal themes, some of us kept it classy and elegant and others went for dark and "Spoooooooky" our stunning, winning treasury from SandySimone!

Our runners-up had some gorgeous treasuries too...take a peek and see if you can't find something to liven up your Halloween. DuettaDesigns offered up "Night of The Raven", an elegant and dark treasury. PuppyLovePrincess gave us party-ready goodies in her "Ghostly Gala" treasury.

October has us getting ready for Autumn and our theme is a super hot trend on etsy right now: Autumn Weddings! Come read the official Entry thread for all the details. Treasuries must be made Thursday 10/6/11 - Thursday 10/13/11. So get out there and make a beautiful treasury fitting the theme, use four members of the CCCoE team and an item from our September winner SandySimone, tag it with "3coe2" and then post a link to your treasury in this thread. Be sure to spread it across the social network...Twitter, Facebook, blogs, Pinterest, Kaboodle...whatever your favorite spot on the web is.

Each treasury must feature an item from last months winner....SandySimone (click her name to go to her shop). She has some real beauties to choose from these lush, gorgeous carnelian earrings....perfect for autumn:

 Or how about some adorable stacking rings?

Be sure to check out SandySimone Jewelry on Facebook  and give it a "like". She does amazing work and you can see more of it there!

The winner for our second challenge will be announced in next weeks chat. The winner gets a guaranteed spot in ALL of the treasuries for the next challenge & a feature on this here team blog. Members will select what item they will use out of the winners shop for the next challenge.
2nd & 3rd place honorable mentions will also be included in the blog feature.
