Challenge #29--OPPORTUNITY: Midway & Voting Reminder

Hello everyone! We have reached the midway point of Challenge #29. The theme for this challenge is all about OPPORTUNITY.  If you are looking for some introspection on the topic of opportunity, be sure to check out Pat's Pondering which will be posted this coming Friday.

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.

Hang in There

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 opportunity, check out the wonderful projects most of my Design Team had the opportunity to create.  Suze managed to pull off two cards and I even had the chance to participate as well...

Once again that should say Guest Designers plural!  We are fortunate this midway to not only have our regularly scheduled GDT but also one of the members of Deedee's Digis joining us.

First up is Veronika, from Cheiro Urgia,, who is our scheduled guest designer this month.  She shared this awesome card with us...

Next up is Faith, from Daffodil Cards, who is on the Deedee's Digis team. She created this wonderful CAS card...
Faith used an image from the Go Wild digi set.  Click on the preview below to find the image set in the Deedee's Digis store.

Clicking on the team members name (or in the case of our GDTs, the blog name) will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations!
So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for?  Create a project and/or post that is positive AND relates to opportunity, 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...

The Top Picks post went out late this month so you still have until 11:55 p.m. on August 23rd, to vote on your favourite entry for Challenge #28.  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 after voting, 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 #28 will be posted either on the 24th if I can manage to get everything tabulated in time or on the 31st.

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.
