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

SIGN-UPS NOW CLOSED - PLEASE JOIN US IN SEPTEMBER

Only pages that are completed and uploaded on or after August 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 August 15th. Please mail to Jessica Chaney, 6749 Barnes Drive West, Theodore, AL 36582.

Or you can pay via PayPal by sending money to jesschaney@comcast.net . If you choose to pay this way, you must pay $8.55 to cover paypal fees.

PRIZES: Gift certificates to sb.com !

**Prize Categories**
(prize amounts will be based upon the number of players)

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 - 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

4 – Most daily challenges completed - I will post a new challenge everyday (small things that can usually be worked into any layout), and if you do them, keep track of how many you complete, and you will be eligible for a prize at the end of the month. If there is a tie, then there will be a drawing. (To be eligible for this category, please start a blog at sb.com to list your challenges completed, then link it here for me and I will add to the first post by your name.)

5 – Favorite layout poll - Closer to the end of the month, I will ask for everyone to PM me their favorite layout that was completed/posted in the AGC thread. I will take the top 5 and put them in a poll for all of sb.com to vote on. The one with the most votes will win a prize.

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




Layouts are counted towards your goal in the following manner:

*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*

Altered items and other projects can be counted 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!**


WHEN YOU SIGN UP, PLEASE POST YOUR LAYOUT GOAL FOR THE MONTH - YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR GOAL ANYTIME BEFORE SIGN-UPS CLOSE!

Woodstock opened this month in 1969 almost 40 years ago! I would have been 11. Sooooo your weekly LO challenge is to scrap a 70’s themed page! You have to have a peace symbol, and a flower power symbol. This challenge will bring you a cool 310 points. You can add 25 more pts. If your picture, (or pictures) were actually taken in the 70’s. (Please make copies of the said 70’s pictures; we wouldn’t want to hurt the originals)



Monthly Scrapbook Challenge
"due" to be uploaded/linked by midnight, August 31

I have a new found addiction to "Word Albums"... these are the albums that each page is a different letter, that when closed spells out the whole word. They make super simple, and such great personalized gifts, I thought that since it's getting closer to the holidays, that we could make one of these this month.

You can use a storebought one, or you can make one yourself! This will be worth 500 points, plus points for each page. Also, I will allow 3 layouts towards your goal for making one.

Here is an example of one I made from chipboard pieces.

(There are several different types that you can purchase in the sb.com superstore)

Over the past 2 months, this challenge has gotten to be SO popluar that it is hard to keep up with.

I would like to ask for 5 volunteers to help me out.

I need 4 people to post daily and weekly challenges split up by the following weeks:

Week #1 - August 3 - 9 - senora_x
Week #2 - August 10 - 16 - taeklund
Week #3 - August 17 - 23 - Pookahbot
Week #4 - August 24 - 30 - Quay

I need 1 other person to help me answer questions on the thread... just in case I miss one or cannot check in all the time (I need to get away from the computer and get back to making layouts.)
