Challenge #19 Top Picks: Voting Open November 10th to November 17th, 2014

Welcome to the Challenge #19 PoP ToP!

Sorry that this post is being published a bit later than usual tonight.  I had a dental appointment late this afternoon and didn't get home until just a few minutes ago.  Since I need to be here to add the links for voting, I couldn't publish until now.

As we only had 11 participants enter, we will once again be opening things up so that all entrants in Challenge #19, 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.

Without further ado, please let me introduce you to the Top Picks for Challenge #19 (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 #19 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 #19 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).


EDITUnfortunately, within the last 24 hours, Samara's blog,, has been changed so that you can only visit if you have been invited as a reader.  Therefore, I am unable to access the blog in order to link up a picture of each of her three creations.  Therefore, regrettably, I can not include her in the list to be voted on. 

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 courage.  Some of 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 #19 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:
 November 10th to November 17th

Come have your say in determining the Voter's Choice for Challenge #19!  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 eight images below on which to vote.  As soon as all eleven eight are uploaded, I'll enable voting to begin. If there are less than eleven eight, 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!

Well, I am in tears. I read each blog post. This is a hard decision to make. Courage is the team and I felt that they all meant courage, so I looked at the cards and decided that that the words on Julie O's card said courage the best to me. Plus I love teddy bears and they represent courage and have helped many children with their night time fears. Edwina Brown
