Design Team Delights for Challenge #25--GROWTH

It is time to share our favourite entries for Challenge #25.  As always, in each challenge you, the readers, get to voice your opinion by voting for your favourite and so it is only fitting that my Design Team get to do so as well.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to join along our Path during the month of April for Challenge #25.  While it is always a difficult decision, most of the team members managed to find a particular entry that really caught their attention.  Take a look...
Penny--chosen by Vicky...

Vicky had this to say:
"My DT delight would be Penny. She totally got growth in my point of view when she mentioned: "We don't grow when things are easy, we grow when we face challenges", it's so very true!"

Create with Joy--chosen by Suze...

Here is what Suze had to say:
"My DT delight is the second entry from Create with Joy.  I love her choice of colours, the layering and the sheer femininity of this creation."

Donna--chosen by Desíre...
Here is what Desíre had to say:
"My DT delight is Donna.  Her creation is just so amazing, colourful, sparkly and pretty with the pink and green. And has so many wonderful little details to feast on."

Asmah--chosen by Pat, Penny & Monica...

This is what Pat had to say:
"My DT delight is Asmah.  Wow! I love this mixed media piece! I love the raw texture and the colors and all the elements which combine to one cohesive and beautiful page." 

Here is what Monica had to say:
"My DT delight is also Asmah.  The Art Journal was so beautiful and really a nice piece of Art!"

Penny said this:
"My DT delight is Asmah as well. Absolutely love her artistic creation! It makes me smile. :^)"

Hanne--chosen by Lisa (that's me)...
My DT delight is Hanne.  Not only do I love the sentiment that she used on her card, but I really liked what she had to say regarding how the sentiment related to the concept of growth.
"In my opinion it's the hardships in life that often offer the best possibility to grow as a human being. You may not always see the growth when it feels that everything is falling apart, but without all the experiences - both positive and negative - a person wouldn't be the same as she or he is today. I think the biggest wisdom in that quote is especially the positive attitude towards the future. There is always hope."
These are definitely words of wisdom!  We sometimes forget that we don't just grow through positive events but through negative ones as well.  True growth is achieved through the compilation of ALL the experiences we undergo.  When we go through the dark, if we can hang on long enough, we eventually come back to the light. Hanne's belief that there is always hope is an important one.

Creative Congratulations to all of you!

Thank you to everyone who played on our Pathway during the month of April.  As always we greatly appreciate you sharing your incredible talents with us.

For our DT Delights chosen for this challenge... 
  Penny, Create with Joy, Donna, Asmah and Hanne

  You are all entitled to one image of your choice from our on-going sponsor...

Please head to the Creative Bug Digital SnapShots store:  Click to enter the digital snapshots area.  Once you are on the homepage for the digis, scroll down a little bit and you'll see a brown banner on the left hand side that says, "looking for digis".  There will be a Polaroid image right underneath it that says SnapShots (Digital Images).  Click on this.  You'll be taken to a page that lists all the categories of images available for you to choose from.  If you need to see the image a bit closer, just right click and choose 'view image'.  Once you've made your decision, please send me the name of the one image you want and let me know which section it came from.

Additionally, you are entitled to the special Challenge #25 DT Delight Badge. To claim both your digi and the badge (or just one or the other), send your requests to popwinners {at} gmail {dot} com (be sure to replace at and dot with the appropriate symbols) or by clicking HERE to bring the address up in your email program, with the subject, "PoP#25--DT Delight Badge and/or Digi Request".   I'm always running a bit behind these days, this month more than usual, so your patience is appreciated.

Our special yearly prize package will also still be taking place.  Remember, if you are chosen as a DT Delight during any of our challenges, your name will be entered into a draw for some digital goodies.  You get one entry per choice; so, if two members picked your card, you will earn 2 entries, three members 3 entries, etc.  The winner at the time will be notified by email.   The next draw will occur sometime in the summer of 2015.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope to see you again tomorrow, June 1st, when we will be back with the start of Challenge #27.  We hope that you will join us then to learn what the newest theme will be.

See you again soon!

Dear Lisa and DT Members...this has been my best moment in life and great experience ever seeing my art journal being chosen as winner in many different categories just for one challenge. I am happy to be given the honor by Pat, Penny and Monica, thank you so much. Once again I thank you Lisa for all the beautiful badges you have made and presented to me.
