In line with the opening of The Rose Keep, we are organizing a themed layout marathon! :excited: The keywords are:

bloom greenery fresh start



How to Participate

Create a layout with any of the keywords. You may use as few or as many as you like, and interpret them freely. Aside from incorporating at least one of the keywords somehow, it's all up to your creativity - no expectations or limitations from us!

All kinds of sites are welcome, whether it's a collective, fanlisting, shrine, blog or something else. The site you sign up with has to be an existing site - no new sites for this event! This event aims to focus on layouts and to motivate you to give your sites a makeover. :wink:

Sign up for this event by replying to this topic with the following:

Code: Select all

[b]Site name:[/b]
[b]Subject/site type:[/b]
[b]URL:[/b]

Once you've made your layout, please link back to this topic somewhere on your site to mention the layout marathon. Feel free to use our event badge below for that or to make your own!

Submit your layout by sending me a PM along with a 200x40 button of your site. I will confirm your submission by replying to you!


Event Runtime

The marathon runs from now to September 14th. The due date for your layout is August 14th, at which point we'll post a round-up of the layouts created. At minimum, please leave your layout along with the event link up until the end of the marathon, September 14th.

You are welcome to plug your site with the new layout anywhere during the event, be it outside of the community, in the Website Projects forum or in our community hashtag #rosekeep! :heart2:


Flower Magic

As a companion topic to this marathon, we have set up a Floral Resources topic in the Resources and Services subforum for you. If you know or come across any nice resources that match the theme of the marathon, feel free to share them in the topic so that we may all find our inspiration! :yes: :excited: :excited:

Let's all grow beautiful gardens together! :heart2:

After seeing those flower textures I'm very much considering signing up but I need to figure out which site I want to sign up with. Ahh too many to choose!

I've been thinking about doing one also. There is a site I know that could use some flowers and a little bit of brightening up. I just need to see if I can find time to work on it. LOL
open the door and let your imagination soar.
