The Enchanted Forest! I wanted this puzzle for such a long time! I loved the color, the whimsy, the magic! And it was out of stock for so long, I thought I would never have a chance to do it.

I was so excited to get my hands on it, but for a while, I was lost as to how to complete it.

As with all JaCaRou puzzles, the pieces are thick and glossy. Great quality and no false fits.

But wow, this was a challenge! This was another one where I just did not know where to start. This image is so full of rich and tiny detail. This is not a bad thing, just takes longer to find a strategy.

I tried to focus on the doors, first and foremost. There was some differentiating detail with the colors and patterns. Truth be told, the key to this whole puzzle was in separating the patterns of each house and roof and creating mini puzzles.

I loved the little fairies too. They added a nice, sweet touch to the image, although they were also a bit tricky.

The leaves on the trees and the green grass were the most challenging parts, so I started from the bottom and worked my way up. Once I had my mini piles of house pieces, it was easier.

This puzzle was so much fun and the perfect amount of challenge. I recommend this puzzle to anyone who loves this brand and this artist.
