Can you believe it's time for February sign ups already?

Are you ready for an exciting month of challenges that will spark your creativity and make you to step outside your comfort zone by challenging you to try variety of techniques? You may even complete that project you always wanted to finish. If so, welcome to February Anything Goes Challenge!

As usual, we will enjoy daily challenges, weekly challenges, weekly photo challenges and a monthly challenge.

SIGN-UPS will be open until February 10th

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than February 15th. If you don't want to count points, you can always play motivational (but you won't be eligible for the prizes).

Please mail to:
Melanie Winters
1141 E Linda Ave.
Pueblo West CO, 81007

Alternately you can pay via PayPal by sending money to
winters81007@msn.com
If you select this method, you will have to pay $8.55 to cover PayPal fees but that’s not that bad considering stamp would cost you $0.41

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

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 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. Please note that otherwise stated daily challenges are meant to be completed on a layout, not a card or altered project. There will be few day specific challenges but generally you will be able to complete those challenges at your own pace and you may combine several of them on a same layout.

5 – Favorite layout poll - Closer to the end of the month, I will ask for everyone to PM me their favorite layout that they have completed and posted in the AGC thread this month. I will take all of them 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 category.*****

Layouts are counted towards your goal in the following manner:

*8x8 or above (8.5x11, 12x12) = 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 categories 3-5 of prizes!**


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

DAILY CHALLENGES
2/1 ~ Set up your siggy, daily challenge blog and then relax for the day. 100 points
2/2~ Try something new on a LO. It can be a new technique, or maybe a one pic LO if you normally do multi pics! Try something new and tell us what you tried! 75 pts.

2/6 ~ Since we've added hearts to our points list.... Do a LO and use hearts on it! They can be any kind of heart! Take an extra 5 points for EACH heart "set" on your LO. For example, if you stamp a single image, but it has 3 hearts on it, you can only take 5 points. But if you stamp 3 separate heart images, you can take 5 per separate stamped image. The same goes for stickers (one sticker with 3 hearts = 5 points, 3 separate stickers of heart(s) = 15 points), etc.... (Hope that makes sense) 50 points!
2/7 ~ Let's do some journaling ladies! It can be journaling on a LO, or journaling on a blog. Just post it here! +60 pts.

2/9 Create a card or LO with: at least 1 heart, 1 picture, 3 embellishments, and some kind of journaling. +75 points
2/10 ~ finish: "Roses are ______, Violets are _______,....." and use as a title for your LO. Finish just the two lines given and you can take +50 points; or if you finish all 4 lines you can take +100 points.
2/11 ~ Find a sketch and use it! Be sure to either include the link or the sketch in your picture so we can share! +75 points. And, if you complete this challenge today, take an extra +10 points
2/12 Make and use your own patterned paper for a LO or card. You can use stamps, stickers, paint, chalk...anything you want but you have to create your own patterned paper and use it in a LO or card. Hint: Sometimes this is called random stamping! Let me know if you need a visual. Post your LO or card w/ the newly created patterned paper , and maybe a quick description of what you did and how. One design will earn you +75 points; two or more different (can be coordinating) designs will earn you +100 points.
2/13 Do something for yourself today--scrap ANYTHING you want!! Today is your Valentine's Day; doing what you want it your gift to yourself; and the +50 points you receive for sharing what you scrapped is my gift to you!!
A Bonus challenge for today: Share the love with someone else...you can earn +2 points per comment in a blog or gallery today!! This is not in addition to the +1 point; the +2 points are what you earn for the "love" you give to others.
2/14 Spread the Love. Give others a "piece" of love-hug, kiss, gift, card, telling someone "I Love You" or something similar, spending time with a loved one, going on a date, WHATEVER you consider a "piece" of LOVE.

WEEKLY CHALLENGE
Do a LO using paper, embellies, etc. from your favorite manufacturer. It must included at least two papers and two different kinds embellies from this manufacturer. Tell us what you have used and why you love their stuff. 125 points


Monthly Challenge
I have seen some really beautiful mini-albums from some of our players. Our challenge this month will be to do a truly "mini" album. The pages can be no larger than 6"x6". The material and shape are totally up to you (acrylic, chip board, etc.). The album also needs to have a theme. The theme is totally up to you, but it needs to be clear what it is. It also needs to have at least 6 pages. Take 500 points for completing this challenge, plus points for each individual page. The pages will count as a half a LO per page, due to the small size.

As an incentive to complete this monthly challenge, which is pretty involved, I will send a RAK to the creator of the album that inspires me the most.

Feb. 22nd thru 28th challenges are due by midnight on the 28th

February Is My Fav. Month!

My Goal Will Be 10

My Suggestions:

I Agree With Die Cut Points... I Really Need To Challenge Myself To Use My Cricut More.

Also Stitching.. I Got A New Pixie For Christmas And I Really Need To Experiment With It More Maybe Even Shaped Stitching Like Hearts And Stars Stuff Like That

Points For Using Sketches Would Be Good I Have Alot Of Them That I Havn't Used.

That's All For Now Thanks

I tried to stay away last month but couldn't and ended up rocking out a ton of layouts! So sign me up again! My goal will still be 10. I am taking the library of memories class this month at BPS so I will be busy reorganizing my pics. But the more I scrap the less I have to organize! LOl!

oh, as for points I miss the points per color of stickles. I also think we could do away with some of the bling points. It is listed 5 points for using bling and then another 5 for bling shapes and words. so i think the 5 for bling shapes and words could be removed and just let them get the 5 for using bling. I also liked the following a sketch points. Other than that I like the list as is!

I am TOTALLY in...This has been the best for me b/c it keeps me motivated and using my stuff. I am going to load up on adhesive again!!

I would love to volunteer for a week of challenges. Just let me know where would be best!

A couple of suggestions for points:
* coloring in of stamped images (I often stamp images in black ink and then color in the images)
* don't have a Cricut but I think using die cuts would be great
* also, I do a lot of altering of "things" so points for an altered item would be great

I think that's all for now.

OH BTW...I got a job last Thursday. I will be teaching English classes for an online high school in Washington (state). I start on February 2nd and I get to work from home!!! How cool is that??? I am so excited. I have been trying to get on with this school since last summer. Total dream job! Now my husband can begin the military retirement process and we get to move back home to Washington!!! Yeah.
