Welcome to the VLB (VERY LAID BACK CHALLENGE) -- January 2013 Addition.

I can't believe I have been hosting this challenge since July 2011 -- Wow. Thanks to everyone who has participated. I have met so many wonderful ladies -- and consider you all friends. It's so much fun to have my buddies back each month and to meet new people.


Please read this entire post before you sign up.

For anyone new to this challenge, here's the idea: so many of us crave all the lovin' our neighbors leave when we do challenges, but sometimes we just want to create layouts and projects that have nothing to do with challenges (and still get some love!). Well, for this challenge, you can just create pages and other projects and link them here. You can follow my weekly challenges, but it's not a requirement. Basically, anything goes!

Here's the one and only catch: YOU HAVE TO LEAVE COMMENTS ON THE OTHER PARTICIPANTS' LAYOUTS AND PROJECTS. So, if you sign up, you are committing yourself to leaving comments as well as receiving them. To keep this from becoming an overwhelming task, I'm restricting the number of players to 35 or so. This is not a one entry challenge. This is a month long commitment to post ALL your work and check out everyone else's. Please post projects only from this month. And please be aware that we can be REALLY CHATTY on this thread and the posts can add up really fast.

Also -- I'd love to learn everyone's first name --if it's not in your siggy could you please tell us.

Every weekend, I'll post a new challenge (well maybe).

Challenges:
Week 1 -- use the newest thing you've purchased on a lo or card
Week 2 -- A ONE WORD TITLE

Just counted my layouts completed last year...96 full page layouts (many double pages), 34 6x8 layouts for my December Daily album, and countless cards. It has been a busy scrappy year!

Good afternoon! Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday! We are off to DH’s cousin’s house later this afternoon. Getting ready to go to Costco to pick up some pics to scrap. I did a LO last night that I will post on the 1st, since it’s for one of the challenges. In the meantime, I also did some “practice” cards. I’m not much of a cardmaker, but I’m Pinning and tracking lots of sketches so I can have some go to quick cards handy. My goal is not to buy a single greeting card this year.

And, our holiday card this year! Designed it myself, so it kind of counts as digital scrapping.

"Paper" Goals:

1. 200 LOs - should be do-able.
2. Never buy a single greeting card.
3. $75 or less/month in scrap shopping. (I really should spend $25 or less, but this is where my "fun money" goes.
4. Clean up after every page/paper project so supplies are always within reach!

I also want to get better at stamping. A's and the LSS where Lisa and I crop have classes, and I need to learn some very basic techniques. I have tons of stamps, but never use because I am never happy with how things turn out.

Lesley -- pretty sweet cards for a non-card maker. And not buying cards is a fantastic goal.

I'd like to play this month. Think I have the time to do it justice since I'm still home with my broken leg.

Use the newest item you've purchased. I'm know I'm bad about buying things and never using them.
