Morocco - the new challenge theme

Every week the European Etsy Team has a challenge for the members to make something with a special theme. Last week the winner was Gia, aka oneperfectday and she chose the next theme, which was "Pin-up girls". We had to make something inspired by Gil Elvgren pin-up girls.
See here the fantastic creations of the team. This was my winning entry:

Now it's my turn to choose a theme for this week :)
As it is still summer and hot here, and I'm counting the days for my summer holidays, I could only thing of exotic favorite places and I chose Morocco for the next them, as it is for me a dream destination, an unfulfilled one, since I went there many years ago with my family, but had to rash back home after two days, because my father got severely sick. 

The introduction of the book "living in Morocco" by Taschen, describes it wonderfully: "Though it lies just across the Mediterranean from Europe, barely a stone's throw from Spain's southernmost tip, Morocco couldn't possibly be farther away. With mountainous and desert landscapes, labyrinthine souks, detectable cuisine, exquisite rugs and textiles, vibrant mosaics, fragrant odors, mesmerizing music, and welcoming people, Morocco is a most alluring and tantalizingly exotic destination" 
 I'm very excited to see your wonderful creations inspired by the colors, style and odors of this exotic place :)


  1. I LOVE this theme. After many visits in Morocca, and living there a half year, I can honestly say that I will not miss this opportunity to do something for the challenge--and I will start thinking right now!
