Hello and welcome to the November Photography Challenge! November is usually a time when we stop to reflect on the things we are thankful for. Despite the crazy time we are all living in and experiencing currently - there are very specific things I am grateful for this month. I'm grateful for the right to vote in the US election on November 3rd. I'm also grateful to all those that gave selflessly for those rights and freedoms we enjoy as we celebrate Veterans Day Nov 11th. So this month, let's zone in on the things that make you proud of your country. Join me in sharing a photo of something patriotic that you are grateful for. Some examples to consider: something that reminds you of the beauty of your country something unique to your country something that celebrates an event or holiday unique to your country something symbolic of your country -flag, quote, etc After a very hard, scary year for those in his MOS, I'm grateful for this guy and especially grateful for a very unexpected visit in early October that I got to spend with him! As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the November Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread. The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month: 2 challenges = 10% off 4 challenges = 20% off 6 challenges = 30% off If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges). I can't wait to see what patriotic thing you are grateful for this month!
