Challenge #32--GRATEFULNESS: Midway & Voting Reminder

Hello everyone! We have reached the midway point of Challenge #32. The theme for this challenge is all about GRATEFULNESS.  If you are looking for some introspection on the topic of gratitude, be sure to check out Pat's Pondering which was posted on Friday (click HERE to find it).  And of course, you'll also find some interesting thoughts on gratefulness over on my Design Team's posts as well.

Just before we continue, I wanted to let you all know that Monica has decided to leave the team.  This will be the last creation from her; although we will still get to see her DT Delight Choice for this challenge when it comes out next month.  Monica has been a true blessing to have on our team and will be sadly missed.  We wish her only the best as she goes forward in her life.  Please be sure to visit her this week and let her know how much she has inspired you over the course of her time with us--just a little over a year and a half!

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 GRATEFULNESS, check out the wonderful projects most of my Design Team had the opportunity to create...

NanaConnie, from Grammy's Attic, who is our guest designer this month, shared this beautiful card with us...

So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for?  Create a project and/or post that is positive AND relates to gratefulness, 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 #31.  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 a selection of the active posts from this month, you have the opportunity to walk away with a selection of digital papers. To check out all those eligible and cast your vote, click HERE.  Winners for challenge #31 will be posted next Monday.
