OCTOBER is here! Time for sign ups!

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 OCTOBER's 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 OCTOBER 10th.

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

Please mail to:
Megan A. Walker
1020 SAINT JULIEN DR
APT 111
KENNER, LA 70065

Alternately you can pay via PayPal by sending money to
[email protected] il.com
If you select this method, you will have to pay $8.55 to cover PayPal fees but that’s not that bad considering a stamp would cost you $0.45

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 if you meet your goal and if you have the most points at the end of the month, then you are the winner in this category.

2. Most Points 10 or Fewer Layouts: If you set your goal at 10 or fewer layouts and you meet your goal BUT do not exceed 10 layouts for the month then you are eligible for this category. If you complete more than 10 LOs then that moves you to other prize categories.

3. Random Drawing of All who Complete the Monthly Challenge: Complete the monthly challenge as well as meeting your monthly LO goal and you will be entered into a random drawing for this prize!

4. Most Daily Challenges Completed: A new daily challenge will be posted everyday. If you complete the highest number of daily challenges and keep track of how many you complete in a blog on sb.com during the month, then you will be eligible for a prize in this category. If there is a tie, then there will be a drawing using random.org. Daily challenges are usually meant to be completed on a layout, a card, or an altered project. There will be few day specific challenges but generally you will be able to complete the daily challenges at your own pace and you may combine several of them on the same project. (PLEASE NOTE: To be eligible for this category, please start a blog at sb.com to list your challenges completed.)

5. Random Drawing of Everyone Who Meets Their Monthly Layout Goal: Meet your monthly layout goal and there will be a drawing done on random.org of everyone who met their goal but did not win in another category.

***** You will only be eligible for prizes having met your monthly layout goal. Each paying player may only win in ONE category.*****


Layouts are counted towards your goal in the following manner:
*8x8 or above including 6x12, 8.5x11, 12x12=1 layout (2 pagers count as 2 layouts)
*2 6x6 = 1 layout
*3 4x6 or 5x5=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 you put into them. If you aren't sure how many layouts a project is “worth”, 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, 4, and 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 on the 10th of the month!

Important Rules:
~Only pages that are NEWLY completed and uploaded on or after SEPTEMBER 1st count towards your total points and layouts.
~This challenge ends on OCTOBER 31, 2012 at 11:59 PM PST. All LOs, cards, pics, or other projects to be counted for points or towards your LO goal must be uploaded to your gallery AND linked to this thread with your point details.

Challenge Volunteers!

These are the new rules for people who want to volunteer to do a week of challenges.
1.The weekly challenge cannot be worth more than 400 pts.

2.The daily challenges can only be worth 150 pts with one exception per week up to 300 pts. So 6 days of 150 points or less and one challenge up to 300 points.

3.The daily challenges should generally be something that can be incorporated into ANY LO. Not a challenge that you must make a LO for that you wouldn't have made otherwise. But it CAN require you to make a whole LO for one challenge per week.

4.Picture challenges can only be worth up to 250 pts total added up for all pictures. There should not be more than 6 pictures for the weekly photo challenge.

5. You SHOULD post the challenge by 10 AM EST (which is 7AM PST) OR post the challenge the night before, preferably after 9PM your time.

6. Please update the 1st page with your challenges at least one time by the Tuesday of your week, at least once by the Friday of your week, and at least once on Sunday of your week after you post the last daily challenge for your week! So you need to update the 1st page using the AnythingGoesChallenge login (you will be pm'd the login information before your week as hostess) a minimum of 3 times if you host an entire week of challenges. The first time you update, on Monday or Tuesday of your week, please post BOTH your weekly challenges and your daily challenges under the correct post (either the Daily Challenges post of the Weekly Challenges post on the 1st page of the thread).


****Weeks will run from Monday to Sunday!****

October 1-7 Weekly Challenge

It seems like a few of us are getting into card making!Card making seems to be a natural extension of scrapping. I need to make a few cards myself! So this week I challenge you to create at least 4 different card designs (actually make the cards too). The following 4 things must be present in your card designs (you can do one in each card design or all 4 in one design, or any other combination!):
1. all B&W card
2. baby themed
3. include star shape(s)
4. include a quote

Share all 4 cards with us on this thread and make sure you use the 4 things listed above in them then take +400 pts!

Here is a good quote. I don't know if it is my favorite, but it is growing on me fast.

"Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Bill Gates, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein." - Unknown

Hi ladies! It seems like October is going to be a slow month. Would you all mind if we made it a "Motivational" month? And just had the challenges (you can count points if you would like) and skipped the playing for prizes part? Only Quay has paid, so if it is ok with Quay, I can hold your money for the next month you play or I can refund you.

Let me know if this is ok. I just got a promotion at work (YAY!) and will be working full time and it is turning out to be quite an adjustment!

September and October are when the school kids are getting into full swing and people are getting busy. I know that the crops around here don't go all summer through October, then start up again in November. We will have to start soliciting around, lol

hey megan have august gift certificates been sent out yet? I haven't gotten mine so just wanted to check. Also when will september winners be announced? to be honest I think a lot of people have dropped the challenge because things just haven't been handled in a timely manner. and when you play for a month you don't want to have to keep track several months later on whether or not the winners have been picked or awards sent.

Unfortunately it's not very motivational with an inactive group! Just saying! I would have loved to play again but with challenges not being posted and points lists not getting posted by beginning of month I've decided to drop out. It is also not fair to expect players to pay when you are still holding our money from the last 2 months. That would be close to $30 and prizes still have not been sent.

I understand that but then maybe it's time to ask for help or step down. I know she's good for the money but to have to wait almost 2 months is now getting a little ridiculous. I'm just letting you know that's why I'm dropping out as well as a few others. It just had to be said because to be honest you will have to start recruiting new players because the old ones are all dropping.

Hi ladies, just dropped in to say hello and saw this from Julie. I have to agree with Julie 100%. That's the reason I did not join this month. I have really enjoyed the challenge but have also noticed that it seems to be slipping.

Megan best wishes in your new job, I know it has been chaotic for you but it can get frustrating for the players to have to keep asking for the monthly winners and waiting on GC's. I know you are doing your best but maybe someone with a little more time on their hands can take it over for a while. Will keep checking back from time to time to see how you all are doing.

I would have loved to play again but with challenges not being posted and points lists not getting posted by beginning of month I've decided to drop out. It is also not fair to expect players to pay when you are still holding our money from the last 2 months. That would be close to $30 and prizes still have not been sent.



Hi ladies, just dropped in to say hello and saw this from Julie. I have to agree with Julie 100%. That's the reason I did not join this month. I have really enjoyed the challenge but have also noticed that it seems to be slipping.

Megan best wishes in your new job, I know it has been chaotic for you but it can get frustrating for the players to have to keep asking for the monthly winners and waiting on GC's. I know you are doing your best but maybe someone with a little more time on their hands can take it over for a while. Will keep checking back from time to time to see how you all are doing.

I think we should make hosting this challenge a presidential thing. Every so often a new hostess will keep us from being overwhelmed.
my suggestion is to rotate every 3 months. Perhaps make it so each person needs to take a turn...a main hostess with "guest" spot hostesses would also work.
Anyway, go Quay Go!

I just dropped Westin off at school and gonna get a few things done before I have to go to work. Then after work gonna come home and cook some fish and tators. I am pretty excited about it. I am starting to eat more fish. It is healthy and cheaper than meat at the grocery store so fish wins lol. And tmw evening Westin is going to spend the week with his dad I will be sad without Westin. We do pretty much everything together. We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday and had so much fun. Then me and my friends went to chilis to eat then crave/paint pumpkins at my friends house. It was a fun weekend. And LSU Tigers won which I was really surprised about lol Geaux Tigers!!

You rock Jade!!! I love how you play with Westin and do so much with him! Looks like another fun filled day for you again!

Work sucks...except I don't work I just play all day! hehehe

I have to say, my brother lived in LA and he fell in love with your tigers. He still watches all the games. I for one am not a sports fan, and have no idea what the thrill is. hehehe I am a scrap fan! Duh!!! lol

Keep up the good work with Westin he will love you forever!

Jade, that is funny you said that about fish! I seriously just said that yesterday to dd! She loves tilapia.

you guys would not believe what happened to me today?!! we came home and our front door was covered in bugs. I thought it was just flies because when the sun is shining and warms things up this time of year they come out. But when I got up close they were big beetles that slightly resemble nasty cockroaches. We freaked out. we couldn't get in the house and could see them all over the windows inside and out. I posted on Facbook and turns out they are box elder bugs and because we live in the woods and have the trees they live in they come out on sunny days. Gabi was hysterical though. It reminded me of the Men in Black movie where the roaches are crawling all over the people! Gives me the creepy crawlies! Anyways dh is awesome and took off work, drove 45 min home, sprayed and vaccuumed them up, and then drove back to work to work till 10 tonight to make up his hours. what a sweetie. That was my excitement for the day. Oh and we had 6 puppies born this weekend!

So glad the bugs are gone!

OK people those of you that are still here...what is the best thing you have ever eaten???

Ok no more yummy food talk!!! Let's talk healthy food for Julie... Carrots, green beans, tomatoes, cabbage. Does that help Julie?? hehehe

I need to start eating better. It's so expensive to buy fresh food here. And it's so expensive to feed 3 grown men. Well 2 grown men. DH hardly eats anything anymore. He is so thin now. It's a wonder he doesn't break a bone when he turns over in bed! Poor guy.

Well I just wanted to check in on all of you's guys! (talking gangsta here) lol

Be back tomorrow afternoon!

just checking in with you all! Spent the weekend at a conference and my best friend/college roommate that usually attends with me had to miss this year because she had her baby! It was a month early but weighed 9 lbs and is doing well. So had to drive 2 hours home from conference and then drive another hour in the opposite direction to meet the little cutie! had fun but feels like I worked all weekend and I'm not ready to head back to work on Monday!
