LOVE ENDURES ALL THINGS {POP Challenge 26 Perseverance}

This month our theme for Challenge #26 - MIDWAY POST at Path of Positivity is 

PERSEVERANCE

Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.

Samuel Johnson



I used the following beautiful image and sentiment set from DeeDees Digis - just click on the name of the image set below to take you directly to DeeDee's  Online Shop (thank you for the privilege to use this beautiful image set) :



I have used the pre-coloured image in the set. The flat pearls, chipboard flourishes, bling 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.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge
Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your GROWTH creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.25. Can't wait to see your creations.
