Challenge #38--EMPATHY: Midway

Hello everyone!  It is time to get on with the midway for Challenge #38. The theme for this challenge is EMPATHY.  Empathy is one of those characteristics that we need more of in the world.  Can you imagine a world where everyone could put themselves into the shoes of their fellow man and really see what the person's life is like in order to understand him or her better?  What a world that would be!  Need some motivation to get you started?  Be sure to check out Pat's Pondering this month (which you can find HERE) for some words of inspiration on the subject.  

 Anyway, now it is time to get on with our midway!

Here are the watermarks and links for the wonderful images that the team worked with for the midway.

We are fortunate and blessed to have the chance to work with all these fabulous images during the midway.  Thanks so much to our amazing sponsor.
To help inspire you down the path of EMPATHY, check out the wonderful projects most of my Design Team had the opportunity to create.  Clicking on the team members' name will take you to their blog where you can check out the details for their inspirational creations...

So if you haven't entered already, what are you waiting for?  Create a project and/or post that is positive AND relates to the idea of empathy, provide an explanation of how your project and/or post relates to the theme somewhere in your post or come over and leave a comment with the explanation.  Easy, peasy!  You can enter our latest challenge by clicking HERE.

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!

If you are new to this unique challenge, you can find out the impetus behind why I started it under the 'Introductions' tab and all the details you need to know in order to participate, in the 'Challenge Details' tab (both tabs located at the top of the blog).

Don't Forget...

You have until Saturday, May 21st, to vote on your favourite entry for Challenge #37.  Voting is quick, easy and painless so I hope you will consider casting your vote if you haven't already.  Don't forget, if you leave a comment on a selection of the active posts from this month, you have the opportunity to walk away with a small selection of digital papers. Winners for challenge #37 will be posted next Monday if everything goes according to plan. You can click HERE to find the Top Picks post for Challenge #37.  Follow the instructions listed at the bottom to cast your vote!

If you need some additional motivation to help inspire you, I've provided another sentiment on this month's theme (the first is available HERE), free for you to download.

FYI...This beautiful quote was written by one of my incredible Design Team members, Katrina Brown.  She graciously gave me permission to make it into a sentiment.  Thanks Katrina!  I hope that you enjoy it.  I've offered up two different versions--one with a cropped cloud background and one without.
