Welcome to June! It's time for another fun month of AGC!! We will have daily challenges, weekly challenges, weekly photo challenges and a monthly challenge.

Only pages that are completed and uploaded on or after June 1 count towards your total points and layouts.

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than June 15th. Please mail to Jessica Chaney, 6749 Barnes Drive West, Theodore, AL 36582.

Or you can pay via PayPal by sending money to [email protected] . If you choose to pay this way, you must pay $8.55 to cover paypal fees.

PRIZES: Gift certificates to !

**Prize Categories**

1 - Most points overall - no matter what your goal was or how many layouts you complete, if you have the most points at the end of the month, then you win this category...

2 - Most points 10 or less layouts - if you set your goal for 10 or less layouts and complete 10 or less layouts for the month, then you are eligible for this category - if you complete more than your goal of 10 (or less) then congrats to you, but that moves you to the other categories...

3 - Person who sets the highest goal (AND meets that goal) - we all like to be challenged to get layouts completed every month - if you set the highest goal, and meet or exceed your goal, then you win this category...

4 - Random drawing of everyone who meets their goal - very simple, meet your goal and I will put all names into a hat at the end of the month and draw

***** You will only be eligible for prizes having met your LO goal. You can only win in one of the first three categories, but everyone has a fair chance for the random drawing.*****

Count your layout according to the following list:

8x8 or above= 1 layout (2 pagers count as 2 layouts)

2 6x6 = 1 layout

4 mini layouts (3x3, 4x4 etc.)= 1 layout

***Cards do not count toward your layout goal, but you can count points for them***

I know some of you like to alter items, and you make things other than layouts and cards, so you can count them as "layouts" based on the amount of work in them. If you aren't sure how many to count, just ask!

*A note for people who'd like to play for prizes, but not keep track of points; as long as you link/post your layouts to the thread, you can still be eligible for the other categories of prizes!

Monthly Scrapbook Challenge
Must be uploaded/linked by midnight, your time, on June 30th.

Do you tend to use the same techniques/products on your layouts over and over again... sometimes you have a scrappers block and can't figure out something new to do... Well I have a solution to that...

I've seen an example posted about making a small box that holds little cards... on these cards are listed different techniques or embellishments that you could use on a page... when you get this scrappers block and just don't know what to add to your page, just reach in your box and pull out a card or two or three and make your layout using the techniques/embellies that your cards say...

Here are the examples:
This is the box,
Altered Jello Box for Techniques

These are the cards for the inside,
Technique Challenge Cards

You can count points for your cards and your box based on the points list. This is a little involved, so I'm allowing you to count this as 2 layouts towards your goal... It will also be worth 500 points, in addition to the points for each card.

1. CrazyScrapbooker 1/10 and 2437
2. Senora_x 73/30 and 12891 - MOST POINTS OVERALL
3. Pookahbot 14/36 4965

you know Im in again.. still thinking on how many I want to commit to this month though. It took alot of work for me to get to 31 in May!

points for...
using supplies older than 6 months

do away with OR clearer point rules for
Outside the Box
photo altering

I also think someone shouldnt be able to post one pic, take points for updating siggy, then right away post another one and points for updating siggy again. Same with comments. Ive seen posting for like 10 comments on its own post then an hour later another one for posting 10 more comments. I could see if it was once a day OR when posting a layout.

Also, if you are going to have days to play catch up on missed challenges I think it would be fairer to have it a revisit past challenges day. It is like a punishment the other way of you already did the other challenges.

Okay.. I'll get down off my soap box now.

Will think more on challenges and items for the list. Thanks much for hosting this again Jess, it's a great encouragement to get things done!

Hi, I would like to play this month, I will send payment via paypal

1 – my goal is 10 layouts
2 – I haven't played since Nov so I'm interested to see what points are for, no suggestions really
3 – I like blog challenges, its probably the only time I actually utilize that area of the site.
4 – for the monthly challenge suggestion...not sure, maybe something about Father's day, that would sure help me to get a page done on the subject

ok, so here's the deal, let me know if its ok. I like to come up with the points stuff cause my brain is really numbery and I just like that stuff. However, if I pay the money and compete for points, I get really competitive and will work on los until I am always ahead. Well, in the month of June, I really should not be scrapping. I should be packing and and sorting, not scrapping. So what I am thinking is that on the los I do, I can count up points and share for no apparent reason other than just to share (I know I don't need to count points then, but I like that, I'm crazy). I can also update you all on how I am doing on teh cleaning and sorting ideas! lol Oh yeah, to husband found out a week ago we are transfering to Chicago in a month as opposed to moving to Nebraska in December so things are moving way faster than we had planned. Anyway, would that be okay? Sorry for teh LONG message!

Hi Ladies,

I have checked this challenge out a few times, but I have never joined. Mainly because I am just not quite sure what to do! Let me see if I get the drift...

You can accumulate points based on things you do (layouts, keeping your points updated in your signature, and that's about all I really know). Is there a point goal we are working toward? How do we know how many points to give ourselves?

If you wouldn't mind, just a bit more explanation for me would be just great. Thanks so much!

I like the way this challenge has always been run and the update siggy thing I thought was only get points on that when you update your siggy in the very beginning of the month. Like Mine still said Dec I would update it to say June AGC and I would take points for that update ONLY. I like the fact I can take points for all the comments on LOs I make and would hate if that were capped off. I don't feel that you should get points for simply posting on threads but only on comments to blogs, pages, and when you tell someone hi in thier my place comments.

I love the daily challenges and the fact that we all live very busy lives and can't always get to that days challenges and that we can do them as we can fit them into our lives. I hope that NEVER changes.

With that being said, I would like to play this month now that my computer is back up and running and I need you to PM me your addy.

I want to try 12 pages and points for using stamps (not alphas) I have tons of stamps and need to get my moneys worth out of them.
Also points for getting 5 or more pics on a page.

What about getting points for using sketches. I have a huge binder full of sketches I have printed from various sites or monthly kit clubs. I am in so many I can't even count and I haven't used but one kit in the year I have signed up.

I'm in and as my goal will be 10 layouts.

I notices BJ's comments regarding signature updates and absolutely agrre that it should not be allowed to take points that way. i mean if you want to post layout, than few pics hour later , than a card another hour later, that's perfectly fine but the siggy point should be limited to once a day. I really don't think there is a need to update siggy more than that.

Also would like to asked about the stamped image points since I want to make sure I'm adding them correctly. I really like the category - makes me use my stamp and find creative way to use them - so I definitely would like to see points for stamped images again but how does it work ets say if I have a frame and stamp the same flower in every corned. The point list say 5 point per stamped image. Would I get 20 points - it is stamped 4 times - or only 5 points since it is the same image.

Thank you.

Ok I'm back in on this challenge. This is one of my favorite ones. I haven't been around really since Dec. So now school is out here I will have more time to scrap.
As far as points go I'm game for anything. So I will say 5 pages for my goal.
