GROWTH {POP Challenge 25 - Growth}

This month our theme for Challenge #25 at Path of Positivity is 


I used the following beautiful image from Sparkle N Sprinkle - just click on the name of the image below to take you directly to Sparkle N Sprinkle's Online Shop (thank you for the privilege to use this beautiful image) :

The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The brads and design papers are from my stash. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .


We are extremely pleased to announce that Julie O. is our GDT for the October challenge. Julie is also on DigiStamps4Joy's design team with me.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to her blog to see her beautiful creative work.

Sparkle N Sprinkle is the sole sponsor for this POP challenge: They are offering up three prizes for this challenge, which will be:
  • $15.00 worth of digital images for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
  • $15.00 worth of  digital images for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
There will also  be:
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital Stamps for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
  • One digital designer paper (made to order in a few different ways) from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.

    I especially enjoy the PoP theme this time. Your sentiments and quote are perfect for this theme. I think people often are so loathe to Change and Challenge in their lives, that they forget the Beauty of Enhancement that awaits on the other side of the Change/Challenge. Thanks for the reminder this morning! xo
