European Street Team Weekly Challenge

Etsy crafters,
have you heard of Handmade Europe and its Etsy European street team? It is an awesome team, and they have Weekly Challenges that will inspire you to create.

- - - - - - - - -
The Weekly Challenge is a sort of Billboard – contest hosted by members of the Etsy European Street Team, Etsy sellers from all over Europe.

One member of the team, the winner of the previous week, selects a theme and publish it in her/his blog. The other team members who would like to participate, send him/her a photo of a handmade item specially made for the challenge, or one that meets concept of the selected theme. After a week, or sometimes 2 weeks, the host of the challenge selects a winner from all the entries submitted and published in the blog. Then that winner continues the thread.

Last week, Zsazsazsu hosted the challenge with the theme 'Seeds and Pods'.
I especially made up a zipper pouch for the challenge, and it won really unexpectedly :D

As a winner, I get to host a new challenge.

The theme I have chosen is going to be inspired by Europe's paradise:  Hills and Lakes

I look forward to your interpretations,
What will one see...
What will one find...
What can one do...
What will one feel, when you are surrounded by hills and lakes!

A play of colours, textures or items and images...
and I am sure I will be surprised by your creativity!

How to submit:
Entries will be added below, so do bookmark to check-in and see.

Closing date: night of 11.April Monday, Swiss / Paris / Berlin time :D
Winner will be announced on 12.April Tuesday.

P.S. At the end of this challenge, I will create a Treasury with your listings :)
