    Hey folks... I've decided to get my feet wet and enter this challenge. I've never (ever ever ever) done one of these before so I need a little help.

    @BuildnShare (or anybody really :p ) I have created my lot and taken my pictures. I signed up for Imgur, but I've never used it before so this will be interesting.

    I've looked at a few of the other entries (great stuff, guys!) to make sure I'm doing this right, but I'm not seeing any links to the Sim Challenge part. Are we supposed to post a slideshow for the Lees as well as the garden?

    I have zero idea how to obtain a link after saving something to the gallery so I'm gonna need a little instruction in that part too.

    Thanks for any help and thanks for a great build idea! I don't do so good on houses, but I think I can manage a garden. :-)

    @BlueJeans04989 - for a link to the gallery, in google, type in thesims.com gallery Click on the link. You will see two buttons, trending or browse, choose browse. Do a search by EA ID - type in your Origin ID - Category lots - Download - Newest - Under Advanced - Unclick the Maxis curated. Then it will load up your gallery images. Click on the lot you want. The task bar contains the link to that gallery upload. Go to the task bar and copy and paste that on the submission for your lot. I hope that helps.

    Link to the Challenge above. The lot and the sim creation are separate entries, so you have to have 2 separate submissions and slideshows.

    Also, when you do your shots on imgur, do picture notes as well. Imgur is pretty easy. Mark your gallery upload with BNS97. Good luck :)

    Okay, I think I got this...

    CHALLENGE #97 A Garden for Daisy
    FORUM ID: LIUBluejeans
    ORIGIN ID: LIUBluejeans
    LEVEL: Starting Out

    LOT: Here

    LOT COST: $1500 (donated by Mr. Lee)
    LOT NAME: Mournin' Miss Daisy
    BUILD COST: $11,939
    TOTAL COST: $13,439
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Look


    ENTRY DETAILS: Sid and Daisy grew up together from childhood to old age. They were true soulmates. When she passed, Sid wanted a memorial to their life and love together. All her life, Daisy loved gardens. They spent every vacation visiting the world's gardens, but Daisy loved the simple, pure ones best. So Sid donated a little plot of land in the newly formed town of Newcrest in hopes of setting a tone of peace for the little burg. He has left the land to the town in his will, at which time it will become a public garden where citizens will be welcome to spread the ashes of their own loved ones.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Oh yes, please! This is my very first entry in a build challenge.

    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: None, MOO used liberally

    TWITTER TAG: Nope, sorry, don't tweet

    TUMBLR LINK: Sorry, don't do Tumblr either
    SPACE FOR PICTURES: (Only a maximum of two per entry, please)

    Whew... hope all the links work! I didn't really play with this family other than to create the pictures I wanted, but I must say, I'm in love with Ms Daisy and Mr Sid. Thanks for a really fun build challenge to get my feet wet.

    Edited: I did play test the lot a fair amount before I uploaded it so the gallery price is less than the build price. The build price is the actual one listed in this post.

    @audrhll - it looks like your gallery upload is marked for #96 not BNS97. Just thought I would let you know so you can change it before the deadline. :)

    Entry Details: Mr. Lee loved his wife Daisy very much, and when she died he wanted a way to preserve her memory so he donated a lot in the center of Brindleton Bay for a community garden. The majority of flowers are daisies, but others have been added for variety and color. I had originally wanted to show it blooming, but that took the cost too high, so I'm submitting this versin, with harvested flowers.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Mr. Lee has donated some land in order to build a beautiful garden for his deceased wife, Daisy. He loved her very much. The lot features a bridge over two ponds, one of which is heart-shaped. There is an area to play chess and to grill. A corner garden has some planters that are planted with...you guessed it, daisies. There is also a bird feeder to feed and watch the birds. You can also fish from the pond. A commemorative plaque and display are in front of the lot. The lovely cherry tree at the back of the lot has been strung with lanterns so that the park can also be enjoyed at night.
