* Path of Positivity: Be Who You Are


Happy Monday!

Today is my midway DT post for the Path of Positivity challenge.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Adoration.
Each of us is better for the people in our lives, so we are asking that this month you create a project that shows how much you care for someone who holds a significant place in your life.

Prizes this month include:
  • $10 AU gift certificate from Beccy's Place, 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.
Please remember in order to be eligible for the prizes your project must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way. 

You can see my first card here.

 Today I am adoring my fabulous husband. We are heading towards our 38th wedding anniversary this spring, so it goes without saying that we love and cherish one another.
Yes, we do sometimes bicker and yes, we do sometimes get on each others nerves, but whatever happens we know that we will always be together and we will continue to adore one another. 

 I was lucky to receive a Scribbles digi stamp for my post and I chose this guitar playing frog called Carl Fretted. My hubby plays guitar; he sings and has an entire music library in his head, so I thought this image was very apt in depicting him. The sentiment is also from Scribbles and says it all - Be Who You Are - don't change for anyone!

I coloured Carl with Copics and fussy cut him. The background is a clean up page from brayering chalky paints. I stamped a background stamp called Background Mash Up by Tracy Evans for AAll & Create in Versafine Onyx Black, I love the small inspirational sentiments incorporated into the background stamp, such as 'attitude is everything', 'be the best version of you' and, 'big journeys begin with small steps' as well as the partially hidden, ' you are stronger than you think'.  I splattered some white paint into the background, then matted it onto black card and mounted on a white card blank.

Many thanks to this month's guest sponsor, Beccy's Place
and to Scribbles Designs as the ongoing sponsor of the challenge

We would LOVE to see your creations! 
Just make sure that your entry is positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way!
