As we are a unique kind of challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work in order to be sure you are eligible to win any of the prizes offered. 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:
Try Something NEW
Continuing with the idea of bringing more positivity into your life this year, this month we want you to design a creation that focuses on TRYING SOMETHING NEW. This could be trying a new craft technique, or designing a journal/scrapbook page sharing a new experience. Reach out beyond your comfort zone to feel proud and rejuvenated! We could always use New Techniques on any image; or, maybe colouring an image we might not normally choose would be a new experience. If you typically make cards and stick to basic rectangle and square shapes, you could always try a new card shape or be really brave and try a fancy-fold! Then of course, there is the idea of trying something new in your life and then creating some sort of project to reflect that experience, like Carole has done with her start project. Which ever direction you lean towards, this month it is time to have a new experience one way or the other!
- THREE images from Pattie's Creations, our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
- ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
- One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.

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. Sometimes we get in the habit of just doing the same things over and over again, whether in our lives or in our crafting. However, it is important to stretch ourselves every so often and Try Something NEW. It can be something big like taking a class in a subject that has always interested you but you've never had the nerve to do. It could be something as small as simply trying a new technique in regards to your crafting. The act itself isn't important, it is stepping out to try something out of your comfort zone that counts. Growth is an important part of our lives so this month take the opportunity to Try Something NEW and do a little growing of your own. If you'd like to tell us about the NEW experience you undertook this month, 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! You can find our list of participants and enter our latest challenge yourself by clicking HERE and scrolling down to the bottom of the post.
