* Path of Positivity: Strong and Beautiful


Happy Monday!
I hope you are staying safe and well.

Today is the midway point of a the Path of Positivity challenge.

This month the theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Family Ties.

Prizes this month include:
  • $12 gift certificate from Bugaboo Stamps 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.
So, our optional theme this month is Family Ties.  
Families are a very important part of our lives. This month create a project that shows one of your own family connections. 

Please remember in order to be eligible for the prizes your project must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some way. 

I used an image from Bugaboo Stamps, our sponsor for this month, and quote from our ongoing sponsor, Scribbles Designs.

My card represents my family tie with my niece. 
She is a beautiful young woman, who is quite strong and fearless, despite having anxiety issues. She is happy to be true to herself, no matter what others may feel. 
She has the most amazing blue hair which fades to this beautiful turquoise. At her prom she wore a gorgeous red ball gown and that is how I have depicted her in this lovely Bugaboo Stamps image:

I used the Bugaboo Beauty digi stamp from Bugaboo Stamps with a sentiment, Strong, Fearless, Beautiful which is free from Scribbles. I coloured the image with Copics and fussy cut it. I made the background from a scrap of card used to brayer off excess Fresco Chalk paints. I added heat embossing in white and some stamping. I die cut the sentiment with a plain circle die to echo the heat embossed circles in the background. Both the image and sentiment were popped on foam tape to add dimension to the card.

Many thanks to Bugaboo Stamps, this month's guest sponsor,
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!
