Ch. #101--Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of Celebrate Something Special about YOUR FRIENDS …Midway

 
 
 
Hey folks! Welcome back to the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog! It is the third Monday of the month and that means that it is time to present the midway for Challenge #101. It is my fond hope that each of you and your own families continue to stay well wherever it is you live in this big wide world of ours.  

As we are a unique kind of challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work. Please be sure to check out the START POST FOUND HERE for the specific details related to this month's challenge, and you can find out all the general details you need to know in order to participate, by clicking on the 'Challenge Details' tab (located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can now be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'General Rules'.
 
Right now, it is time to continue with our midway. Here is a refresher of the details for our current twist:
 

Challenge #101

Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of 

Celebrate Something Special about 

YOUR FRIENDS

This year's goal is to celebrate the positive around us. As such, if you would like to participate in the optional twist this month, we want you to design a creation that focuses on Celebrating Something Special about YOUR FRIENDS.
 
What would we do without friends in our lives?! A shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen to you when you need to decompress, someone to giggle with just because, a comrade that understands you through and through! People come and go in our lives but a true friend will be with you forever. When you come across one of these special people, be very thankful as you've been blessed indeed!!!
 
If you want to follow the optional twist this month, think of all the friends that you have who would love to receive a card [or some other type of project from you] letting them know just how much your relationship with them means to you. While last month focused on the four legged companions in your life, this month, it is time to pay homage to the two legged ones who've stuck by you through thick and thin throughout the years. It is time to show the world Something Special about YOUR FRIENDS in your effort to celebrate the Positivity that already exists in your life.

Remember, the twist is completely optional and you don't need to follow it in order to win. However, in order to be considered eligible for this month's goodies, remember that general types of projects/posts will not qualify for the honours and prize UNLESS they are also positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. Additionally, even if a project may qualify as positive, if your post promotes negativity, hatred or anything of an abhorrent nature, your project will be disqualified. Honours and Prize include:

  • $6 worth of images from Scribbles Designs, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
  • A badge for the following honours: Top Pick, Voter's Choice, Most Inspirational, Random Winner, DT Delight.
To help inspire you further down the path of Celebrating Something Special about YOUR FRIENDS, check out the wonderful projects my Design Team had the opportunity to create. Clicking on each team member's name will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations.

Thanks again to my fabulous design team! As always, each of them have their own exceptional approaches and concepts which impress me to no end. Each of these creations has demonstrated the theme of Celebrating Something Special about FRIENDS admirably, and I hope we have encouraged you throughout this challenge to come up with your own piece of handiwork. Be sure to go and visit these talented ladies so you can see just how their projects tie in to the twist.
 
Why not join us, if you haven't entered already? Create a project and/or post that is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature and join our link up. How about stretching yourself by also opting to follow the twist?! While it isn't mandatory, we'd also love to find out how this month's twist affects your own life. Do you have a story showcasing something special about one or more FRIENDS in your life? If you'd like to share how you have personally been affected by a special friendship, we'd love to hear it. You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you'd like.

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!

Ch. #100 Top Picks: Voting Open May 9 to May 16/22

WELCOME TO THE CHALLENGE #100 POP TOP!

Hello folks! I hope that your Path this past week has included a number of positive moments along the route and that you and your families are all doing your best to stay healthy and happy. 
 
It is time to present the top picks from the last challenge. Since we had 35 incredible entries in Challenge #100 (click HERE to see the original challenge with the theme of Celebrate Something Special about YOUR PET(S) OR ANIMALS IN GENERAL), it is time to get on with showcasing the seven projects and/or write-ups that touched the team the most. In case you are new and wondering why seven and not the typical three, four or even five? Any time that we have more than 14 entries, we have a top seven (with 14 entries or under we just have a top three). We always strive to be a bit different over here on the Path of Positivity and this is just another way to do so. Additionally, seven is a spiritual number and thus right in the wheelhouse of the vibe we are looking to project; so, seven it is when enough people join in.

Thus, without further ado, please let me introduce you to the Top Picks for Challenge #100
 
 






 

Congrats Ladies... 

As a participant who has been chosen as a Top Pick in this challenge, 
you are entitled to a special Challenge #100 Top Pick Badge.
Please feel free to grab a copy for your blog...
 

  

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. Please be sure to go and check out the entries first and not just make your choices off of the thumbnails. Then, let us know who your favourite choice is by placing your vote below using the Linky Tools feature. Once you have made your decision, why not go back and let that person know how she inspired you.

 Good luck everyone!


Voting open May 9th 
through
May 16th
