    The Lilypad provides 8 challenges a month for you to participate in, and uses a percent system for your rewards; 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 or more challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to the Lilypad!

    Since we have 8 challenges total, this allows you to skip one challenge if it just doesn't suit your style and still be eligible for the gift certificate. You can, of course, complete all 8 challenges if you want, but it won't increase your rewards for that month, other than you've completed an extra page!

    The first 7 challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the 8th challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day (first Friday of the Month). Challenge layouts must contain 75% TLP product (eligible product can be current or retired product from resident designers, or guest designer product that is currently in the TLP store). BYOC challenge layouts must have 90% current BYOC product from the current month's BYOC. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    All challenge layouts must be posted in the TLP gallery listing the product used for your pages, and must be completed by midnight eastern time on the last day of the month.

    You should post your challenge pages each month in the Challenge Layouts thread. There should only be one post per participant in this thread. After you post your first challenge, please edit that post to add each additional challenge page you complete. At the end of the month, this thread will be closed and you will be contacted with a coupon code for your discount. Only one post per person will be tallied, so please do not post multiple times in this thread. In order to make tallying easier, we also ask that this thread be used only for posting challenge pages; please do not comment on the pages in the layout thread, but feel free to go to the gallery to leave some love!

    Throughout the month, as I see people finishing the challenges, I will move your post to a "Finished Challenges" thread so I can tally the finishers throughout the entire month instead of just at the end. Please do not move your own post over when you've completed the challenges.

    Coupons are sent via conversation by the 15th of the month after the challenges close.

    If anyone has any questions, please let us know!

    So, I think I've done it correctly. I still can't link it from the gallery. I know how and what you mean, but after I've uploaded, I go to my page, and copy and paste where the link is to go...then what? How do I get it to 'go'?
    I've posted in these three places for the moment, is that right? (I WILL get this and you won't have to help me forever!) :)

    @Genniejoy You have everything in it's proper place! As for the linking, you copy the link shown below:

    In the thread, you simply paste that code in, and it will automatically link:

    If you hover over the layout, it will show a hand pointing, and when you click the layout it takes you to the gallery

    I haven't been able to log into the forum and just saw the list. I don't know which challenge is #1, etc. Is there a list?

    They aren’t numbered for the monthly challenges so you can do them in any order!

    How long do the reward coupon codes last once they are issued?

    They usually are issued by the 15th of the month and good to the end of the month issued, so for example the coupons for February challenges will be given out mid March and would be good through March 31st... at least that was how it reflected for my December completed challenge coupon. Hope that helps Jennifer :)
