When the sun comes out and the weather warms from spring to summer, we step out of doors and take a good look at our outdoor living spaces.  It was fun to see how many of you made simple changes to turn ordinary spots into something special.

The guest judge for our Outdoor Spaces Challenge was Linda, visiting from Craftaholics Anonymous.

Linda stopped by each of the challenge contestants’ blogs to check out their spiffed-up outdoor spaces.  She had a great time seeing all the projects and discovering new blogs.  Linda offered her comments about each of her favorite projects, which we’ve included below (in italics).  Let’s see which of your outdoor spaces were Linda’s favorites.
