Design Team Delights for Challenge #16

It is time for my Design Team to share their favourite entries for Challenge #16.  As always, in each challenge you, the readers, get to voice your opinion by voting for your favourite and so it is only fitting that my Design Team get to do so as well.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to join along our Path during the month of July for Challenge #16.  While it is always a difficult decision, each team member managed to find a particular entry that really caught their attention.  Take a look... 
Deanne--chosen by Vicky...
Vicky had this to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Deanne - I really love how she found 2 very inspiring quotes to go with her card!  And I do believe that this little  ballerina would achieve her dream.  My favorite quote of the two mentioned would have to be":
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer.  Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." --Harriet Tubman.

Donna--chosen by Desíre...

Here is what Desíre had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Donna.  Not only is her card beautiful, but  she has captured the meaning of DREAMS so beautifully in this paragraph":
"Instead of viewing stumbling blocks as obstacles, those "blocks" may actually be BUILDING blocks to bring us to a different place, fulfilling an "UNKNOWN DREAM" which has always resided in our hearts."

Teresa--chosen by Monica and Sandy...

Here is what Monica had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Teresa.  The overall card is just stunning with her coloring and choice of colors. I instantly LOVED it!" 

Sandy said this:
"My DT Delight choice is also Teresa... I LOVED LOVED LOVED the colors!  It is a fun fun card!"

Carmen--chosen by Pat...
This is what Pat had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Carmen whose pink & grey color combo, along with my favorite Disney quote, won me over."

Julie O--chosen by Lynda...

Lynda had this to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Julie.  I love how her photos and the layout design are so full of color.  The heart cutout is awesome.  I love that she focused on the powerful connection between a dog and human.  Sophie the dog connects with the residents of the nursing home.  I love that she says in her post that she (Sophie) is the 'maker of dreams and fulfiller of dreams'...truly warms my heart."

Judith H--chosen by Lisa (that's me)...

My DT Delight choice is Judith H.  Disney definitely influenced a couple of our participants as Judith also used the same quote that Carmen did.  This quote really speaks to me.  It doesn't matter how old or young we are--laughter, imagination and dreams are things that we can, and indeed should, experience throughout our entire lives.  There are no age limits on using our imagination or coming up with new dreams to explore; and of course, laughter should be part of every single day.

Now while I like Carmen's card as well, as she too made the Disney quote the focus, I am drawn more to Judith's card.  She has done such a lovely job framing with beautiful diecuts and embellishments.  There is something about the horizontal symmetry and the way she reflected her diecuts.  It just really draws me in.  I also like the greens and lilacs coming together for a subtle blending of colour.  It is a beautiful card to encourage anyone who may have forgotten the important points stressed in the quote or to simply serve as a reminder for how we should live.
