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

Here is the link to the June AGC if you would like to see what its all about and get some kind of idea on the points list...

Only pages that are completed and uploaded on or after July 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 July 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!**

The Directions for making this book can be located here:

Also, in order to help keep me a little sane, please PM me with your layout goal for this month. I'm gonna do things a little differently... I ask that once a week you PM with your updated layout totals and points totals... This will make it easier for me than having to search the thread!

It's very easy, Sarah! Just post what your layout goal to be (how many layouts you want to challenge yourself with), anything particular you would like to earn points for...

There is a link to the June challenge in the first post... it helped some last month figure it out before the points list was posted!

I'm in again Jess. I'll set my goal at 20 for July (30 has been tough this month, plus we're going away next month)

I would like to see points for felt - I bought so much to use and have barely used any of it.

Challenge ideas - use a sketch, scrap pictures more than 1 year old, that's all I can think of right now.

Picture ideas - fireworks, something red, white & blue, something that symbolizes freedom.
