****2 NEW PRIZE CATEGORIES****

June is on the way! 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 June 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 June 10th

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than June 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:
Megan A. Walker
311 S LASALLE ST APT 3H
DURHAM, NC 27705-3606

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 a stamp would cost you $0.44

Only pages that are NEWLY completed and uploaded on or after June 1st count towards your total points and layouts. This challenge ends on June 30th 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.

PRIZES: Gift certificates to sb.com or a RAK from me!

**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 10 LOs 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 points 11-25 LOs. If you set your goal for 11-25 layouts and complete your goal of 11-25 layouts for the month, then you are eligible for this category - if you complete more than 25 LOs then congrats to you, but that moves you to the other categories...

5 – Highest Goal Set and Met- If you set the highest LO goal and meet your LO goal you will win this category. This is to challenge ourselves to get our butts in gear and get pages done!

Categories with RAK as Prize
1. Most daily challenges completed - I will post a new challenge everyday and if you do them, keep track of how many you complete, then 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. New this month: If you win this category pm me your address and I will send you a nice RAK valued at $15 or more. You will get the RAK instead of a gift certificate because we do not have enough players to give out 6 gift certificates.

2.Random Drawing #2- I will put everybody's name who meets their goal into a bowl and then randomly draw a name. The prize will be a nice RAK worth $10. Just PM me your address when you find out you won.

***** 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!

CHALLENGES
~*~Daily Challenges~*~
Each day a new challenge will be posted. These challenges can be done at your own pace unless specified in the challange. These can easily be incorporated into any card or LO. You can take +10 pts for completing the challenge on the same day it was posted.


6/1: There is going to be 2 parts for today's challenge. We are starting the month off easy! Start a new blog entry and your siggy for 50 pts.
I don't know about you guys, but I can't scrap unless my workspace is clean and organized. Any time I get ready to scrap I have to reorganize EVERYTHING!! Clean/organize something in your workspace. Or just clean the overall space! Take before and after pictures to take the points. It's worth 100 pts.
6/2:I know school is out, but we need to work on our 1,2,3s!!

1. use 1 punch
2. use 2 rub ons
3. use 3 pictures
4. use 4 different pp
5. use 5 buttons
6. use 6 3D flowers
7. use 7 circles (polka dots count, buttons dont)
8. use 8 eyelets/brads
9. title be at least 9 letters
10.use at least 10 words of jornaling

this is worth 300 pts since it's a REAL challenge! haha this can be done on a double page LO.
6/3:use at least 4 stars on a LO for 85 pts.
6/4: Use a rainbow on your LO. 50 pts. If you use all 6 colors of the rainbow on your LO then take 100 pts. I know it's kind of confusing. If you just stick a rainbow on your LO it's going to be 50 pts. If you put red flowers, orange eyelets, green paper etc etc then take 100 pts! (you have to put 6 colors on there though!)
6/5: I was thinking today what I would ever do without adhesive. So lets see! Do a LO and use no adhesive. (you can use adhesive to put your pictures on the page, that is it) so be creative! use eyelets, brads, sewing etc! this is worth 100 pts
6/6: use a new technique, or refresh yourself on an old one!! 100 ptstechnique lessons
6/7: take double points for comments today only. and you only get an hour to leave comments. so post on here when your hour starts, go leave comments, then come back after you hour and post when you hour stops and take your double points. This can be done anytime from now (2:15 central time) to tomorrow at 2:15 central time.
6/8: Use something clear or transparent on your LO. +100 points
6/9:Create a LO using only handmade embellies. To clear things up, I consider handmade embellies to be anything you make. You can use a die cutter, punches, etc…. Store bought stickers, flowers, buttons, etc… cannot be used on this LO. Since this is a tough one, it’s worth +275 points.
6/10:Use chipboard on a LO for +103 points.
6/11:Do some handstitching on a LO for 80 points, plus take an additional point for every stitch. So for example, you normally get one point per hand stitch (according to the point list), add an extra point for each!
6/12:Add some bling to your LO for +75 points.
6/13:Use a plain white sheet of cardstock as your background on a LO for +115 points
6/14:Use felt on a LO for +100 points!
6/15:have a family member or friend go into your scrapin' area. have them pick one *thing.* now use this on a LO +80pts
6/16: Pick your favorite outfit. Use those colors as your dominant colors in a LO still +95pts
6/17: I got this from a CK magazine. Got a fortune from a fortune cookie laying around?? Yes, well good. Use this to start off your journaling. +125 pts Website With Fortunes
6/18:Use your least favorite product and at least one of your oldest pps on a lo +105 pts
6/19:use only even numbers or odd numbers on a lo. for example, if you do odd numbers---> 1 die cut frame, 5 chipboard shapes, 7 stickers etc. Does that make sense?? +150 pts
6/20:i recently got this book to help w- journaling. it has a bunch of quizzes. so i thought it would fun to try one out. and today is your choice. by this i mean you choose if you want to:

A. post your answers here (make sure the answers are in color)
B. incorporate into a lo for yourself or someone else

the quiz: two by two
1. Two everyday things I couldn't live without
2. Two of my favorite songs:
3. Two things I want to do before I die:
4. Two things I worry about:
5. Two stores I shop at:
6. Two things that scare me:
7. Two snacks I could eat every day:
8. Two people I'd be lost without:
9. Two nicknames I've been given
10. Next two places I want to go on vacation


I HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYS THIS CHALLENGE!! +150PTS
6/21: Do a LO honoring a special dad in your life! +275 pts

use the +25pts to thank at least 2 great dads (make sure to mention who they are)
6/22:Use glitter on a LO or card for 50 points
6/23:Do a lift. Pick a fabulous LO from anywhere here on sb.com and lift it. You must post the original (or a link to it, if public embedding isn't allowed) to get the 100 points.
6/24:Distress something on your LO or card today. 60 points
6/25:All the great tips and tricks we share on this forum are so fabulous. With that in mind, post a link to a wonderful scrappin' tip or trick you've found (it can be from sb.com, another website, or one of your own creation). 75 points
6/26:Show off you favorite three scrappy supplies on a LO. Example: flowers, bling, and polka dot paper. 60 points
6/27:Do a negative space LO for 50 points. Take 25 bonus points if you use three or more pics.
6/28:Use 3 hearts on a LO for 50 points. Take 30 bonus points if there are 5 or more.



WEEKLY CHALLENGE6/22-6/28:
I just got home from a 2800 mile road trip. YIKES!!! Anyways, do a LO about your favorite trip or vacation. It needs to have at least 50 words of journaling, and 3 pictures. 300 points


PHOTO CHALLENGE6/22-6/28:
Clouds 40
Grass 40
Water 40
Sand 40
Wind 40


All challenges are due by 11:59 PM PST Sunday the week that they are for. All items must be linked to this thread with point details to take points for them.

Monthly Challenge 6/1-6/30:
We all seem to struggle with making LOs about ourselves. Our family, our friends, our pets, or places we travel, but not ourselves. This month's challenge is to make 3 LOs about yourself. Something you love, something unique about yourself, or part of your life can be the subject. Just as long as they are about you. This is worth +500 pts for all 3 LOs.
Here are some examples:

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 350 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.

The weeks will run from Monday to Sunday.

I changed the prize category to one that we used to have and that I think will better motivate us to get a lot of pages done.

I added the challenge volunteer rules because the points for the daily challenges were getting out of hand. When I first started playing in this challenge the daily's were +50 pts or +75 pts. Now they are getting up to 300 pts and 400 pts. And a lot of them were requiring their own LO to be completed. They used to be able to be incorporated into any LO. The daily challenges were like techniques or using certain supplies. The daily challenges were getting to be worth more than the weeklys! Then the weekly's were getting to be worth as many points as the monthly challenge.

I don't think I changed any other rules. If there was one I changed that you had a question on, that I didn't address here, feel free to post or pm me.

Thank you for addressing my question. I was starting to notice that the daily's required their own lo. So I appreciate that change!!!

Hi Angie! Congrats on your graduation! how exciting! I think the best way to understand the points system would be to check out the May Anything Goes Challenge. That's the link. Scroll down to the middle of the 1st page and see points list. check that out, then go to the last page of the thread and check out some LOs with points posted for them. I know that I just posted one so that should be a good example. Hope that helps! Let me know if you want to join officially after you get a better understanding of the points system. Also at that time let me know what your LO goal for the month will be and if you have any suggestions of things you would like to see on the points list. Great to have you!! Megan

Thanks for the congratulations on my graduation, Megan!

Ok, so I took a look at the May thread and I think I understand. Basically the players in this challenge decide the points, correct? And we just add them up according to what we do/use on our layouts, etc. I think I have the general idea. So with that being said, I'm gonna jump in with both feet! Sign me up for the prize category and I'll be sure to get my money to you ASAP! I might have a few more questions along the way, but I'm sure you ladies will be willing to help me!!

I'm gonna set my LO goal at 15 for the month. I will get back to you about the points suggestions.

So another question..

does the points list from May carry over to June and we just add new things..or does the June points list start from scratch? Make sense??

most of it carries over and some things are added and others deleted. So if you think there is something missing from the May list that you want to see on the June list, just post it here. If there is something you do not think should be on the list, let me know! Thanks for joining us! I've got you added!

Gotcha, Megan! Thanks for answering my questions.

I was gonna suggest using paint on your LO for points, but I see that is already on the May list..so I guess we can carry that one over. I have a TON of paint that I need to use!

Well Quay there will be NO keeping up w-you next mth.

I would like to maybe see more pts for paint too. Also, maybe pts for rub-on phrases not individual letters. And maybe a theme could be trying something new like a technique or product (like never using eyelets then trying them)

I've got you added as players traceyjean and Bev. I have Kena added as a motivational player. And I updated Quay's LO goal! You go Quay!!! You can do it and you win a prize unless anyone is going higher??? Any takers??

We still have 1 week of challenges open for a volunteer to take on. Make sure you read the new rules before you agree to volunteer for that week. I can switch the weeks around except for June 22-30, those are already set.

Thanks for volunteering to do the challenges. There have been some guidelines set up that you want to read before you do your week of challenges. It is the 4th post I think. I gave you the week of the 8-14...does that work?

I also need your LO goal!

Great to have you with us for another month!

Wow! my yearly goal is 150! If I scrapped that much in a month I'd have to buy a storage unit to put all my albums! I'm already stressing out now because i have 2 big 12x12 3 ring albums for each year of Gabi's life. By the time she is 18 I'm going to have 36 albums or more and no place to put them!

hahahaha! I have a lot of catching up to do. I have 20 years of my life to do. 25 years of my DBF's life to do. Plus I am doing christmas books for my mom and my dad. So I have to get a lot of pages done a month to get it all done! haha!

I WISH I could get 75 or more LOs done in a month. I'm doing good to get that many done in a year! Then again for the past 2.5 years I have been a full-time college student and mom/wife..so life has been hectic. Thankfully the college stuff is behind me (for a year at least) and I'll hopefully have more time to scrap. I just acquired about 15 photo albums that were my grandmother's and there are a TON of wonderful photos in those that I want to scrap. My grandmother died in 1995 so these are precious memories to me!

I am going back to school this fall, so I am wanting to get as much done now as I can. Expecially the gift albums. I really want to focus on school this year. So this summer I am focusing on myself and doing everything that I want to do, then when it comes to august, I will have to buckle down, and will be lucky to probally get 10 done in a month! it will be sad!

I'm so excited to have these in my possession! My grandmother was anal in a good way about keeping photos and newspaper clippings, so I have a wealth of memories now. My grandmother was also a great cook and I have all of her cookbooks as well. (I got those right after she died though. I wanted her cookbooks and her jewelery box and got both.) The cookbook that is the most precious to me is actually a notebook where my grandmother hand wrote lots of different recipes. It's awesome to have a reminder of her handwriting.

So, Megan, I assume you are doing July's challenge as well?? I have a question...

I am doing a month long challenge on here that says I can't enter my LO's for this other challenge into another challenge. So in July can I take points for the LO's I upload and do in June? does that make sense?

Unfortunately, you can only take points for the LOs you do during the actual month. Does the challenge end the day before the month ends or anything? Most challenges that are anonymous or don't let you enter other challenges end a day or two before the end of the month, so you can enter them into other challenges.

It doesn't say when the challenge ends in the rules. I am pretty sure it goes all month, but I asked anyways. From what I understand we will be doing around 10 LO's. If so, I may just drop the other challenge. 10 LO's are time consuming, and I wont be able to do as much on this challenge... I don't know, I will wait to see what she says.

thanks megan!

Question: I don't see any restrictions on winning the same category in successive months. Does anyone else think this would be a positive addition?

so you are saying like I can't win the most points category this month, then win it again next month. but I can win the most points this month, and win the most challenges next month?

I think that would be a good idea, I like that one! also, are we still un able to win more than one category a month? I think that is a good idea too. Just so the same people aren't winning the same thing every month, and it gives other's a chance to get some prizes!

I changed the prize category to one that we used to have and that I think will better motivate us to get a lot of pages done.

I added the challenge volunteer rules because the points for the daily challenges were getting out of hand. When I first started playing in this challenge the daily's were +50 pts or +75 pts. Now they are getting up to 300 pts and 400 pts. And a lot of them were requiring their own LO to be completed. They used to be able to be incorporated into any LO. The daily challenges were like techniques or using certain supplies. The daily challenges were getting to be worth more than the weeklys! Then the weekly's were getting to be worth as many points as the monthly challenge.

I don't think I changed any other rules. If there was one I changed that you had a question on, that I didn't address here, feel free to post or pm me.



I really like the change! Sometimes it is hard to do a LO per day and such. I didn't realize that (previously) the before challenges were like that! Thanks Megan, for telling us why and such!

Megan... i love the changes you have made this month. especially the daily challenge changes. those rules make it a little bit more like it was when i started playing last year.

My two cents about the not winning the same prize category two months in a row... Personally, I think winning in a category is a big old pat on the back for working really hard. We all have the same shot at winning the most points category for example. Some people just scrap more, therefore they win. To make a long story short, IMO I think it's perfectly fine to win the same category two or more months in a row. regardless of what you decide, this is still MY FAVORITE challenge of all time!!! We are the best group

I'd love to join this challenge again - it's been a few months since I've played and I've missed it.

I think I'll try for 10 layouts this month.

Now, I'm playing in that same challenge as Jenn where we can't use those lo's in other challenges. So, I just want to make sure it' ok - I'm going to try and do 10 additional lo's besides the ones for that challenge. If it's over before the end of June, I'll add them into my total and just be over my goal. If it doesn't end before the end of the month, it's ok they're not counted, right?

margy- oh my gosh!! that was hilarious!!! now I will always have that image of Quay in my head! lol!!

I think that we should change the rules to you can't win it every month. Mainly because we have awesome people on here and some people (cough Quay) scraps at 45 miles an hour and can get a lot more points in a month then some people on here. I do see what Melanie is saying though about it's a pat on the back. I do agree with that though. I guess what I am saying is that I would like it if we did change the rules, but I am fine if we don't.

Jen- If the challenge doesn't end before the last day of June, then we can't take the points for it. In the rules, at the top it says something like "this challenge will start June 1st and run all month" so I am assuming that it will last till the end of June. I asked her though, I am just waiting now for her to post back.

I know some people would like to change the rules about winning. But I don't think it is in the spirit of the challenge to not allow someone who worked really hard get their prize. That is why there is the random drawing category so if you aren't super-scrapper, you still have a chance to win. I'll think about it and see if I can come up with any ideas that would make it seem more fair.

It was a good thing I had seen your post on here because for some reason, I had totally missed that from the rules (or had forgotten).

I just want to make sure that it's ok that I'm putting down for 10, but with this other challenge, I'll actually be doing probably closer to 20 (I just won't be able to count those other ones). 20 layouts in a month for me is going to be a stretch as it is - I don't think I could go any higher than that.

I hope my question makes sense. I'm just not used to doing layouts for this challenge that I don't count, kwim?

Yea, I asked her, she said the challenge will go all month... so we wont be able to take points here for the LO's we complete on the other challenge. I am actually not for sure excactly how many LO's the other challenge will require us to do. I know there will be a weekly challenge each week and then some mini challenges. So I just over estimated and said 10. I am not 100% sure if I will stick with the other challenge now that I know I can't take points for them here...

Jen- If the challenge doesn't end before the last day of June, then we can't take the points for it. In the rules, at the top it says something like "this challenge will start June 1st and run all month" so I am assuming that it will last till the end of June. I asked her though, I am just waiting now for her to post back.



It was a good thing I had seen your post on here because for some reason, I had totally missed that from the rules (or had forgotten).

I just want to make sure that it's ok that I'm putting down for 10, but with this other challenge, I'll actually be doing probably closer to 20 (I just won't be able to count those other ones). 20 layouts in a month for me is going to be a stretch as it is - I don't think I could go any higher than that.

I hope my question makes sense. I'm just not used to doing layouts for this challenge that I don't count, kwim?




Yea, I asked her, she said the challenge will go all month... so we wont be able to take points here for the LO's we complete on the other challenge. I am actually not for sure excactly how many LO's the other challenge will require us to do. I know there will be a weekly challenge each week and then some mini challenges. So I just over estimated and said 10. I am not 100% sure if I will stick with the other challenge now that I know I can't take points for them here...



ok I'm lost...what are you talking about?

I've been reading through this challenge and also looked at the thread for the May challenge. I think I am going to jump in here and set my unrealistic goal of 80 LOs. I have never done anywhere near close to that number of pages in a month. But I am pregnant with our first and due in August, so if I don't get some pages done now, I don't think I will have the energy in a few months!

Besides, it looks like someone needs to give Quay a run for her money

I do have a question...with the daily challenges, are they due by the end of the day they are posted? I know some challenges I have done in the past, you had so much time to finish the daily challenges, but not necessarily just that day. Just trying to figure things out!

ETA: Nevermind to my question...I just re-read the original post and found my answer!

Quay, there's another challenge starting June 1st - called the summer blog hop challenge - or something like that. Two sisters are hosting it and giving us weekly challenges on their blog and some other mini challenges each week, but we're not supposed to use them for any other challenges.

Jenn, I sent my money on Saturday, so I'm just going to play. If we don't end up doing as many layouts, I may just be able to go over my goal and that's fine - I'm so far behind on my pictures!

yes, you have until the 10th to sign up, but I suggest starting on the 1st so you don't feel behind.

  • -Jenn- Said:
so you are saying like I can't win the most points category this month, then win it again next month. but I can win the most points this month, and win the most challenges next month?

I think that would be a good idea, I like that one! also, are we still un able to win more than one category a month? I think that is a good idea too. Just so the same people aren't winning the same thing every month, and it gives other's a chance to get some prizes!



Yeah, that is what I was thinking. You don't want to penalize people for getting a lot done by not letting them win anything but it is more fun for others if they feel they have more of a chance to win so this seemed like a good compromise. I'm glad others seem to agree but it is up to Megan either way. I certainly understand not wanting to change things midstream, too.

ETA after reading the other replies: sadly I think it comes down to money somewhat and wonder if that has to do with not having so many players. If you know you don't have a chance in any but the random drawing category, someone might be less likely to want to spend the money. I know I didn't play for a long time for that reason. I know there is the motivational category but for me that is too much work for no potential "reward" if that makes sense, so I was just thinking others might feel the same.

Like someone else said, I'm fine no matter what is decided, just wanted to throw it out there. Love this challenge!

Ok so here's the deal...I will not take any prizes for anything I have done in the month of may...just because I know it is hard to take when the same person keeps winning, because they have a ton of time to scrap! (cough, me) It's really ok and let the race continue on!!!

Next month I will scrap as fast as I normally do but put a handicap on what LO's I post. K?

I really love this challenge and would certainly hate to drive any of you away.

Oh, Quay, NO! That is not what I meant to happen! I know Megan mentioned not having enough players to have prizes for an additional category and I was thinking that maybe people weren't joining because they didn't want to spend $8 when they knew they weren't in the running for much. There are months when I can't swing it in good conscience and I'm sure we can all relate. BUT...I also totally agree that the whole POINT is to reward scrappers who are getting a lot done!!! I was just thinking of a way to mix it up a little. Please don't feel like I was targeting you or that you are ruining the fun for others...your layouts inspire us and your fun posts encourage us! Luv ya!

Oh I understood your post Marci, I know money is an issue. And I know winning is important too. So I just got to thinking, maybe I should just back out for friendship sake! I am really ok with it.

SO, it's all good!

I just know scrapping at 45 miles an hour is hard to keep up with.

OK, I did some thinking and I'd like to *try* to play for real. (just remembered I have some $$ sitting in Paypal...) Hopefully it's not too late to change my mind

Put me down for a simple goal of 10. It's going to be a busy month; I've got a toddler keeping me on my toes and I'm getting more hours at work, so it's probably just going to be late night scrapping for me for a while. I'm going to try to keep track of points, but I sounds like that might end up being more time consuming than anything.

I'll send you the $$ in just a bit...

Thanks!

I was thinking about this last night that Quay might feel like we don't want her around anymore! We still want you to scrap super super fast! and we still want you on the post, and I still want to see your great LO's! I enjoy the competition. I have to say I stayed pretty much on your toes a lot in May! I am just saying that if I spend 8 dollars a month for 12 months, that is almost 100 dollars that I could of spent on giving myself prizes. I don't know, I think we should just keep it the same, because it's not fair to Quay or other fast scrappers! If they won, they won fair and square! I will just have to scrap faster! Or start hiring people to scrap for me I also think with the new prize category it will help other people to win stuff as well!

well that is my input for the day, I have to go to work, I am already late!

Ok, I think I got all of the new players added. Please check the first page to make sure I have you down and have your goal correct.

ScrappyNewMom, what is your name? I am using 1st names so we can become a more intimate group this month.

Hey everyone!

Quay, I don't think you should refuse any prizes or handicap yourself. I actually don't mind if the same person wins, but I also understand that it can be frustrating.

Anyways, my point to all this, Quay you've worked hard your whole life. You may have more time to scrap now, but I'm sure you haven't had oodles of time on your hand. Enjoy retirement, and enjoy having all that time to scrap. You shouldn't feel guilty about it, lol.

When I get to retire I am going to rub it in everyone's face. I may even get a "I'm retired" tatoo on my a** and moon people!!

Ha, ha. Anyways I love you all, and I would hate to not have all of you to play with!
