Lawnscaping Challenge: Christmas themed and a heartfelt goodbye

Hello. Laurel here with you today. Today is a bitter sweet post. We are here to share our latest challenge with you but also announce that this will be the last Lawnscaping Challenge.   We have thoroughly enjoyed our five years together! Five years? Can you believe it? It seems like not long ago that I launched this challenge and can't believe how quickly it grew!  But it is come time to say goodbye and goodbyes are never easy. Most of you know, this challenge was created by me. I came up with the idea, found a fabulous group of designers who were willing to work with me. Created the name, logo, badges.  This challenge is not affiliated with Lawn Fawn.  I was not asked or hired to create this challenge. It's just an idea a measly Florida girl came up with five years ago.  And the rest is history.

  • To our followers:  We have such an unbelievably talented audience and we can't thank you enough for riding along with us on this inspirational journey. If you just hopped over to the blog and checked it out of if you played along in our challenges. YOU are what kept this challenge going all these years and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
  • To our amazing sponsors, Ellen Hutson and Lawn Fawn: Thank you. Thank you for supporting us these 5 years! Your support and encouragement has meant the world to us and I will forever be grateful.
  • To my design team - past and present: You all amaze me... Such a talented group of designers and friends! I am honored that you served along side me. Truly. I'm going to stop because I am getting teary eyed.

Today's final challenge is all about  Christmas or any holiday that you celebrate as I know not all of you celebrate Christmas.





We are sponsored by Lawn Fawn who is sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice! We just heart them! Thank you Kelly Marie and gang for sponsoring us! 



And now.... For some DT Inspiration for you! If you click on the name under the image, you will be taken to the individual blogs with all of the juicy details on the projects!





































• You have until Wednesday, December 28, 2016 to submit your entries!

I did want to mention that one of our sponsors, Ellen Hutson, hosts two challenges per month over on the CLASSroom blog! The first and third Thursday of each month! Ellen Hutson carries a variety of crafty projects, including the entire Lawn Fawn line!  We hope that you will join us over there!

  17. Is there anyway to keep it going? I have never entered, but felt really inspired to create. Is there any way to keep together all of the examples right now, like a reference library? Then we could add to it when there are new sets? Thank you so much for doing this. It ment the world to me.

    1. Hi Christine. I have good news and not so good news. The not so good news is unfortunately, no, we can not keep it going. This is a private challenge blog created by myself (we are not affiliated with Lawn Fawn) and after 5 years, I felt it was time to close the doors. A LOT of work behind the scenes and a whole lot of love went into the challenge and the daily maintenance of it and I am thrilled we could inspire you! The good news is the blog will not be deleted. You can always refer back to here for inspiration. There will just be no more new content after the end of this month. Thank you again for your kind words.

  19. When I stumbled across this blog a year ago, I had a million questions, mostly about how to link up and enter my card to the challenge.
    And here I am, a year later, dozens of challenges later, saying goodbye and (ironically) being unable to link up my card today. Is it just me or is there a something I'm missing? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh wow! First, Congrats on five years of awesome, Laurel! I have completely enjoyed participating in so many of the challenges! I always found them fun, spunky, and inspiring! The cards I've found here over those years have always been inspiring in many different ways. :)
    But second, I am going to miss it, of course. Like all good things that end, goodbyes are always bittersweet. Thank you for running this blog and challenge--a lot of work, and oh so well done! :)
    Now, I better go make a card for the final hurrah!! :)
