March is almost here, time flies...

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 March 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 March 10th

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than March 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
[email protected]
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!

03/28 - my BFA is in theatre so bear with me - try using a line of shakespeare as your title. this could be a fairly common line, such as "to be or not to be" or "romeo where art thou" or even "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" or you could use a more complex line that you like. 80pts.

I am in again but this month it will only be for motivation. I am leaving out of town twice that I know of so it may be hard to keep up. And I am going to Ck convention the first weekend so stash points would be nonexistant hehe.

Wow! I am so proud of this group of women. We've all hung in there and are still happy and scrapping strong!

I see several new requests to do challenges for a week and I would be more than happy to let someone have a chance if they want. I just offered to make it easy but Melanie, it's up to you!

Yeah. I can't wait for March. I have been so busy this month with my new job! I have scrapped one whole LO! Pathetic...haven't even had time to hook up camera to download and post.

UGGGHHHH

I did that last month and it worked ok - I just made sure I put the date of the challenge where it could be easily seen!! I am in Idaho and didn't want others to have to wait for me in the morning...I am so NOT a morning person!

Thanks Laura! Love your challenges for this week! I'm not sure I'll be seeing any real signs of spring around here yet though, unfortunately. It's only going to be 19 here tomorrow. I'm so sick of winter. I guess I may have to use my Easter decorations :).

Rayette, like for example I could maybe do a LO about my teacher side vs my normal side, or my cats very sweet loving personality half the time and feisty, crazy side the other half of the time. it can be anything that you feel has two different personalities. It doesn't have to be good vs bad, just 2 differences. I hope this helps

Yeah, I've been missing some of the old stuff that used to be on the list--like individual gems (they take forever to place individually), ghost shapes, and points for altered items (like the points for layouts, cards, mini-albums, swap items, etc.)

Also, is there a monthly challenge? Wasn't sure if it wasn't posted yet or if I just missed it...
