Challenge #27-HAPPINESS-Midway & Voting Reminder

Hello everyone! We have reached the midway point of Challenge #27. The theme for this challenge is all about HAPPINESS.  I apologize that it is being posted a bit later in the evening than normal.  Unfortunately, I also didn't have time to prepare a reflection like I normally do.  However, if you are looking for some introspection on the topic of happiness, be sure to check out Pat's Pondering which will be posted this coming Friday.  It too is being posted later than usual this month.  That seems to be the theme of my life these days. ;)  Good thing I can concurrently explore other themes like the one we have this month.  I might be struggling with my time management right now (not enough time, too much to manage) but I can still be HAPPY--happy I have work to make me feel productive, happy I'm able to reach out and help where I can, happy I have something to share.  It is all about the spin you put on things right?!

Anyway, it is time to get on with our midway!

Here are the watermarks and links for the wonderful images that the team worked with for the midway.

We are fortunate and blessed to have the chance to work with all these fabulous images during the midway.  Thanks so much to our amazing sponsors.
To help inspire you down the path of happiness, check out the wonderful projects most of my Design Team had the opportunity to create.  I even had the chance to participate as well...

Clicking on the team member's name  will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations! 
Sadly, we have no guest designer this month.  This is the first time since I implemented the idea of guest designers, that we will have no one joining us during the challenge.  If YOU would like to join us during a future challenge as one of our guest designers, be sure to add GDT after your name when entering the challenge, or simply send an e-mail to:  pathofpositivitychallenge {at} gmail {dot} com (or by clicking HERE to bring up the address in your email program), with the subject heading "PoP GDT".
So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for?  Create a project and/or post that is positive AND relates to happiness, provide an explanation of how your project and/or post relates to the theme somewhere in your post or come over and leave a comment with the explanation.  Easy, peasy!  You can enter our latest challenge by clicking HERE.

Also, I know that the participants would love for you to go and pay them a visit.  Remember we're creating a Path of Positivity to follow one project at a time and we'd love to see you somewhere on that route even if it is just by leaving a comment on an entry from someone who has touched you somehow with their project and/or post!

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab and all the details you need to know in order to participate, in the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog).

Don't Forget...

You still have until 11:55 p.m. tonight, to vote on your favourite entry for Challenge #26.  Voting is quick, easy and painless so I hope you will consider casting your vote if you haven't already.  Don't forget, if you leave a comment on the start, midway, pondering for Challenge #27 or the top picks post for Challenge #26, you have the opportunity to walk away with a selection of digital papers created especially with your interests in mind. To check out all those eligible and cast your vote, click HERE.  Winners for challenge #26 will be posted next Monday.

If you need some additional motivation to help inspire you, I've provided another sentiment on this month's theme (the first is available HERE), free for you to download.

I am sorry I forgot to tell you the positive story of my creation! I made this candy box for a special friend of my moms. I lost my mom 14 years ago. She died one month to the day after my sister was murdered by her husband. It was such a hard time or me and my mom's friend took to mothering me. That sounds pretty silly considering I will be 64 next month. LOL! But,this lovely lady has been wonderful to me. So I gave her this candy box for Mother's Day. She is so sweet she cried because I remembered her on Mother's Day. God has richly blessed me.There is a silver lining to every cloud!
