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 [email protected] . 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!

Week 4 Scrapbook Challenge:

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.)

This sounds fun but I don't get anywhere near as many layouts done as it seems many others do here I'm going to go crazy and wild (compared to my normal monthly achievements) and say I'll aim to complete 10 layouts this month, haha! Maybe this challenge will inspire me to do more

ME! ME! I am just LOVING this challenge!

I am going to a crop on the 2nd, so I should be able to get a few things done there. Let me try 15 for my goal again. Not sure if I will make it this month with everything going on, but what the heck!

Jessica, I'd love to do this again, and wouldn't mind answering questions in the thread if they come up. I'll paypal you the money shortly.

I'd love to set my layout goal to 15. I go back to work sometime near the end of August and my husband is leaving for a week in the middle so I don't think I'll be getting as much done this month, unfortunately.

I'm so glad the sign ups are finally open, I have been checking back and forth in the July forum, and leaving some love!!

I wasn't able to scrap in July because of all thta was going on in my life; I whope I manage things out this month, I'm going to set my goal for 15 layouts; that's a big number for me, but I'm going to do my best and complete it!!

I know I thought at the beginning of this month that I was getting burned out on scrapping after the big month of june but I seem to still be whipping out the pages! I told myself I was going to take a break with august being busy with back to school but I just can't stay away from this challenge! it's my fave!

This challenge is really addicting. I didn't do this last month for points and it wasn't any fun. I love to count all my points up!

I have a suggestion...maybe people who are going to try and get the most challenges could start a blog entry here at sb.com to update every time you meet a challenge, with a link to the page that meets it. That way you won't have to try and look through a bunch of pages of this thread and everyone's galleries to find who completed how many challenges--it will all be right there on their blog.

i know this challenge is soooo addicting! i am trying to figure out how i can pack, move, unpack, set up my apartment, go through orientation, start graduate school and do this challenge! i said i was going to do motivational, but i am really having a hard time talking myself out of playing for points!

that's a great idea! I actually keep a spreadsheet each month of all the points for each layout and challenges. I love highlighting the ones as I've done them to see what all I accomplished that month! It would be so easy to do that as well in a blog and fun to see!

This is a wonderful idea! I didn't even think about how I was gonna keep track of what everyone had done - guess its the lack of brain lately I will add this to the first post! Thanks!

I think I'll go for 20 LOs again this month.

I've really got to get working on the album for my parents' anniversary.

Question for you ladies who've been scrapping longer than I have...where can I find out how to use the distressing ink pads? I really want to learn how to do this technique.

Hi Girls I want to play again in August. I was so busy in July, I didn't even get to look at what you all had accomplished. Anyways, I'll be happy to help answer questions Jess, or do something else, if you need it. Just let me know... I'll make my goal 10. My oldest goes back to school on the 15th, so I should have a little more time. I can't wait to get started!

Jess, I wanted to ask you about some scrappy stuff as far as points go. How do we score points for just regular stickers (not alphas or numbers)? Also, what about 3D stickers?

I'm not sure if these things are already covered under something else on the list.

Thanks!

I don't think these were included on the list last month! If they are not on the list they don't count for anything. However she did do a daily challenge to use flat stickers so for that challenge you got points for using them!

A question just occurred to me. Forgive me if it's already been stated but I didn't see anything about this.

When you say Daily Challenge or Weekly Challenge... does that mean you have to complete the layouts the day the Daily Challenge is posted or the week the Weekly Challenge is posted?

Thanks in advance for the clarification

The daily challenges can be completed at your own pace (they are small and simple and usually something you can work into any layout)... but the weekly challenges have to be completed within that week

I'm going to give this another try for August. I got so far behind in July and never even made my goal. Hopefully I'll be able to do better this month

I'll set my goal at 15 layouts.
