Challenge #18 Top Picks: Voting Open October 13th to October 20th, 2014

Just before I get on with today's top picks, I wanted to wish all my fellow Canadians, a very happy Thanksgiving.  I hope that you have each had the opportunity to spend this occasion with the people you love most in this world.  I also hope that you took the time to really reflect on all the blessings in your life--big and small.  I've created a special pumpkin paper in honour of today that you can find on my personal blog HERE if you would like.

Welcome to the Challenge #18 PoP ToP!

Unfortunately, we only had 11 participants enter Challenge #18.  As I have mentioned previously, any time we have under 14 participants we will be opening things up so that all the entrants have the opportunity to be chosen as the Voter's Choice.  However, while we may not have enough participants to have a top seven, we certainly have enough to have a top three.  Therefore, it is time to get on with showcasing the three projects that the team feels were the best of the bunch.

But before we get there, I just want to say a very special thank you to everyone who entered this month. While we may not have had many, the majority took the theme very seriously and not only did they create some wonderful projects but each person who entered took the time to also talk about how their project related to determination.  It was really wonderful reading all your posts this month.  If anyone reading this post right now would like to be inspired then I definitely would recommend visiting each of our entrants if you haven't already.  

 Without further ado, please let me introduce you to the Top Picks for Challenge #18 (in no particular order)...

Congrats Ladies...

As a participant who has been chosen as a Top Pick, each of you is entitled to a special Top Pick badge. Please send an email to popwinners {at} gmail {dot} com, or by clicking HERE to bring up the address in your email program, with the subject "Challenge #18 Top Pick" and I'll email your badge to you.  Please note that it may take me several days to get back to you, so I really appreciate your patience.
Now as I mentioned, each of the participant's who entered Challenge #18 is eligible to have their project and/or post voted on.  Here is a list of everyone who entered.  Each of the entrant's names is linked up to their blog post (order is reflective of how they entered the challenge and nothing else).

Have Your Say!

Now the really hard work starts.  It is time for you, our readers, to vote for your favourite entry.  Which participant most inspires you?  Remember, you are not necessarily voting on a creation that was made.  You might simply find what the person had to say in their post to be inspiring and optimistic and in line with the concept of determination.  Our participants had some great things to say on how their project connected to the theme. Therefore, please be sure to go and check out the entries first and not just make your choices off of the thumbnails.  You can also check out comments left by entrants on the Challenge #18 start post by clicking HERE and scrolling down to the bottom.  Once you have checked all the entries out,  let us know who your favourite choice is by placing your vote below using the Inlinkz feature.

Voting open for 7 days:
 October 13th to October 20th

Come have your say in determining the Voter's Choice for Challenge #18!  Don't forget to leave a comment after you have voted.  There will be a prize for one lucky voter who leaves a comment (chosen randomly).  If you haven't had the opportunity to visit each of the entries already, please go and check them out a little more closely before placing your vote.  Once you have made your decision, why not go back and let them know how they inspired you.

Good luck everyone!

Important Note:

Please note that in order for this to work, I must add all the entries but I can only do this AFTER I have published this post.  So there will be some overlap time between when this post is published and when you will be able to vote.  Once I have uploaded the entries there will be a total of eleven images below on which to vote.  As soon as all eleven are uploaded, I'll enable voting to begin. If there are less than eleven, it means that I am still in the process of adding the images and you should come back in a little while to make your vote.  Thank you for your patience!

I love the card with the words Go Forth Always on it by Stacy. I wonder if I thought this each time something came up if I could face it better. I hear determination in the words and in the card itself. Butterflies are very determined in their migration each year. I think Stacy caught the true meaning in her card. Edwina Brown
