****NEW PRIZE CATEGORIES****

July 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 July 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 July 10th

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than July 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 July 1st count towards your total points and layouts. This challenge ends on July 31st 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 –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.

***** 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!

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.

I'm in again! I think we should get rid of prize #5! Its not that motivating because really only the "highest bidder" can compete for that. Just my 2 cents. But either way I'm in again for a fun filled month!

This mth I know we got pts for circles but how about pts for stars in july.

I know we get 10pts for any scraplift on sb.com, but what a lift from somewhere else? If we could provide a link maybe we could 5pts?

Maybe some themes could be summer fun or family gatherings

I really like how you added pts per challenge. For me it was motivating to finish all my challenges

Question: Are die cuts coming back on the 5pt list?

thanks for letting me put my 2 cents in

You know, I see this posted every month and feel overwhelmed just looking at all the possibilities!

With that said, July is supposed to be a fresh start for me. I'd like to play; but not for points -- seeing as I'd be playing to learn something new... or, rather, playing to conquer a fear of the unknown.

Please add me to the list with a goal of 10 LO's for the month.

TIA!

Ok, you can be in the 11-25 category, but you need to pick a number for your goal. Also, what is your name?

Do you want to send in money and play, just not play for points? Or would you like to be in the motivational category where you do not send in money and are not eligible for prizes? Also, What is your name? And the gals here are really nice and helpful, so jump right in! We're happy to have you!

This month, I'd like to be placed in the motivational category, please. Prizes are fun; but this time simply learning something new is better.

So, if I understand correctly, this means that I'll still come back every day and week to get the daily and weekly challenge (and meet it), yes? It's just that I'm playing for me and won't be considered for votes or drawings or what have you?

Oh and my goal this month will be 40...thought I would take it easy this month! Due to the fact we have the 4th and here in Utah we have the 24th too!! So, I will be busy getting ready for 2 very big parties and then our garden tea party after that! hehehe

You know, I see this posted every month and feel overwhelmed just looking at all the possibilities!

With that said, July is supposed to be a fresh start for me. I'd like to play; but not for points -- seeing as I'd be playing to learn something new... or, rather, playing to conquer a fear of the unknown.

Please add me to the list with a goal of 10 LO's for the month.

TIA!

Yes, feel free to join along with the daily and weekly challenges, you just won't be eligible for prizes.

I'm not sure I understand all of this but I'll give it a go. Put me down for the 11-25 LO's group. I want to play for points so will go send money by paypal, $8.55.


Ok, you can be in the 11-25 category, but you need to pick a number for your goal. Also, what is your name?



Aww ok, see I'm already learning. Put me down for 15. My name is Judy, I am the mother to Princess Bling Marci. Thanks for having me.

I'd love to see points for Christmas pages - I'm so far behind, birthday pages and for using a sketch.

I'm a little confused but I am definitely interested! I need the kick in the pants!

No money here to send, so I'll just be a motivational scrapper. (I think I'll keep track of points, but just for my own kicks and grins. )

This sounds exciting!

Oh, and my goal is 10 LOs. That's about all I can handle right now!

I tried this once a long time ago and got very confused. Please put me down to get 10 LO done this month. I'm going on vacation so it's going to be hard.

If I understand it right once we post our LO we also add up any points for it as well and give you that number.

You keep track of your own points, it is on the honor system. Most people keep track of their points in their signature line. Check out mine for an example. Let me or any of the other ladies know if you have any questions. Everyone is very helpful!

Also, what is your name?

I am so excited and just wanted to share that our pig is having her piglets today! We went out to check on her and she had four running around. When we went back later there was a 5th one and she was grunting and Gabi actually got to watch one being born. Unfortunately it was stillborn but she was in awe of the whole process!

I probably shouldn't but I can't stand to NOT play. We will be gone for a week with not only no scrappy chances but no internet access! But I will just give myself a lower goal...I'll say 12...and hope you will forgive me if I can't keep up on comments that part of the month. Okay?

Hello ladies!!! I'm so glad to see this challenge is still going!!! I havent scraped in almost a year and I really miss it... I'd love to play this month; but its gonna be crazy since I have a new job and will be out of my house without internet for 17 days =(

I do remember I was always so very inspired by everyone playing along...

I think I'll just sit back and watch you girls create, take a look at challenges and see if I get any of my mojo back and hopefully I'll play along in August!!!!

I don't know how you girls do it! My online time is limited, so by keeping track of points, I've had no time to go leave comments or keep up with conversation. And I thought I was good at juggling! LOL!

I'm going to have to bow out this month, but I might pop in from time to time for motivation. Have a great month!

Okay, let's see....

I've decided -- even though I'm most definitely playing for motivation -- that I'd like to keep a running tally of any points I could have earned. It's a kicks-and-giggles thing.

So, I've added this challenge to my siggy -- in blue (75+25=100)

I've updated my sb.com blog with a post for this challenge ( have a feeling this is part of the 75 for siggy... especially if I add a link to my siggy)

I have uploaded a LO to my gallery as well (50)

So.... If I were playing for points I would have 150 so far.
