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'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 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 pay, 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] 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 $0.44

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, 2011 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. Going forward all daily/weekly/monthly pics, LOs and point details must be posted to the thread by the deadline which is Sunday 11:59 PM PST.

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 10 LOs then congrats to you, but that moves you to the other categories...

3 - 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...

4 – 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.) Daily challenges are 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 those challenges at your own pace and you may combine several of them on a same layout, card, or altered project.

5 – 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 one name.

***** 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 (6x12, 8.5x11, 12x12) = 1 layout (2 pagers count as 2 layouts)
*2 6x6 = 1 layout
*3 4x6=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 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 4 & 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!

When you post your cards, LOs, or altered projects please post all points details inculding any daily, weekly, or monthly challenges you are counting them for on this thread.

7/22: In honor of summertime and lots of sunshine, make your card or LO primarily yellow.

If you make it monochrome take 150 points for a LO or 125 for a card.

If not monochrome, then take 100 for a LO or 75 for a card.

This is for 150 points.

7/25: As you probably know, I live in Oklahoma, and what that means is that I have been living under the worst heat dome in recorded American History. I haven't seen the thermometer below 105 since the first week of June. And there is no water - no rain, the grass is dry, the pasture is burned up, and the central part of the nation is suffering.

This is an environmental crisis of the worst proportions we've seen since the dust bowl.

Today's Challenge : I am desperate to see water - I do not care what form it takes ...swimming pools, rain, oceans, beaches...anything wet. Anything cool. Anything that reminds me that water is out there...

Scrap a layout using water for 150 points.


7/26: Accept my apology for 150 points. :-)

7/27: (To collect +10 bonus pts for completing same day, you must have posted this daily by 9 PM EST on 7/28/11.) The temperature today hit 115 degrees. There is not a cloud in the sky. Use sky blue and cloud white in your layout today -- 150 points.

7/28: Here's something to think about and use for your inspiration today --- 150 points.

Yesterday is only a memory, and tomorrow is only a vision, but each today, well-lived, makes every yesterday a memory of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

hours.

7/30: (Saturday Sketch Challenge) Use this sketch to create a project for today!



7/31: Seems like this week just got away from me in a big hurry. I'm normally much more on top of things, but I've been struggling with my computer for most of the week. It just doesn't seem to get that I have obligations.

Today is the last day of July and the first day of the week. That presents an interesting twist.

Scrap something that has one "last" and one "first" on it. I'll leave that open to your interpretation. 150 points!

~*~Weekly Challenge and Photo Challenge~*~
These challenges MUST be posted WITH POINTS DETAILS by 11:59 PM PST Sunday to take points for the weekly challenges.


RULE: If you take a pic of your computer screen because you do not have the item asked for in the weekly photo challenge you will only get half points for the picture of your computer screen. So if the challenge was originally worth 100 pts, you would get 50 pts; worth 50 pts, you would get 25 pts; etc.



As you are all aware, the national news has been all about the United States Budget talks. This week, we are going to do OUR parts to keep our scrap spending at a minimum.

Your weekly challenge is this.

Create a page using ONLY papers and products from your scrap box and excess stash. You are not permitted to spend a single dime for any product to finish this page.

The twist is this :

NOR are you permitted to OPEN any new product to complete it. If you run out of adhesive - you'll have to figure out another method for attaching items. If you run out of ink - too bad, use colored pencil or crayon or magic marker.

This is about us being frugal. Maybe the US Government will take a lesson from us and get their financial house in order as well.

Good luck, girls!

WEEKLY CHALLENGE: 400 PTS

I am starting off my week at a funeral. One of my favorite cousins died.

I know we will be taking lots of photos and I want to make sure I get some scrapped, so for the weekly challenge, scrap a picture that includes your extended family for 300 points

7/1/11-7/3/11

It is almost time for the 4th of July in the US and that means Independence Day! I want you to reflect on the concept of Independence and come up with an idea for a project based on your concept of Independence. It DOES NOT have to be a big project!!!! For example, does Independence mean gratitude to military women and men who have fought wars under the flag of independence? Then make a card for a soldier. You can make a LO about leaving your parents home to live independently. Those are not very creative and quick examples. But run with this, you can interpret it loosely!

+250 pts for a smaller Independence project (like a card or a handmade embellishment)

+400 pts for a larger Independence project (like a LO or a mini-album)


Half-Week Pictures
love +75 pts
lovely +75 pts
lover +75 pts

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.

  • Megan Ann Said:
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.


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

7/1: Set up your daily challenge blog, your monthly goals blog, and your signature line. Then share the links to the 2 blogs here and take +125 pts!

Half-Weekly Challenge
7/1/11-7/3/11

It is almost time for the 4th of July in the US and that means Independence Day! I want you to reflect on the concept of Independence and come up with an idea for a project based on your concept of Independence. It DOES NOT have to be a big project!!!! For example, does Independence mean gratitude to military women and men who have fought wars under the flag of independence? Then make a card for a soldier. You can make a LO about leaving your parents home to live independently. Those are not very creative and quick examples. But run with this, you can interpret it loosely!

+250 pts for a smaller Independence project (like a card or a handmade embellishment)

+400 pts for a larger Independence project (like a LO or a mini-album)


Half-Week Pictures
love +75 pts
lovely +75 pts
lover +75 pts

I actually scrapped 44 pages last month! I'm on such a roll! And that was with only 3 weeks cause I was on vacation for a week! I think it would be really cool to scrap 365 layouts in a year and since I've been on such a roll I'm really pushing myself to see how close I can get to this goal!

Okay so I thought I understood everything until I saw the half weeekly challenges and the points list.
How often do you add up your points, does it have to be done daily? Any reccomendations?
I just want to make sure I read correctly that daily challenges do not have to be completed each day unless specified, am I correct?
Taking this week's half challenge into consideration if I did a card and layout I would get 650 points correct? Or can you only do one project per challenge?
Everything you complete shoud be linked back to here, correct (including the photos)?

Sorry for so many questions

Ask as many questions as you want Tamika!

You can post the basic points whenever you want, but I find it easiest to post when I upload a LO. The weekly and daily challenge points need to be posted when you post your project.

For the half weekly project it will be a card or a LO. On a lot of the daily challenges you will see a points option for both a card and a LO, but you can not take points for both.

Yes, everything you complete needs to be linked here, including photos.

Hope this helps!

Great start. last month was the first i did anything in 3-4 months with so much going on. Hoping to accomplish much more from now on..... especially since my pictures are coming in faster and faster (can't get enough of my dgd!)

As like Megan. last year I quite a bit more accomplished by now. This year already in the seventh month I only have 6 pages done! Not good!

@Tamika --

You only need to total your points when you post a project. You'll want to keep a running total, usually set up in your signature line.

You do not have to do the daily challenge on the day it is assigned, but you get 10 extra points if you do. Also, you can "stack" daily challenges and use multiple days on one project.

Each challenge is a "one project only" challenge - you cannot take points for a daily, weekly, or monthly challenge more than once.

When there is an option - like card/layout, or this week's half-week challenge, you need to choose one of the options, not both. In other words, it's an an either/or choice, not both/and.

I think I got all your questions answered, but if not, ask another one and I'll try again. :-)

Nice to have you playing! Newbies are always welcome here!

Hi ladies.... I'm hosting this week. Hope you like!
Here is Monday's daily:

7/4:
Independence Day! Generally red, white, and blue are used on this holiday. We are going to put a twist on this. No red white and blue this time. Here is how we will symbolize some of the icons for Independence day.
Independence: Use only 1 photo on your LO.
Fireworks/Sparklers/Celeb ration: Use the brightest, shinniest bling you own (make it sparkle!)
Flag/Stripes/Our Country: Use three bright colors of paper (pp and/or cs) and with one of those papers use a banner on your lo.
Hope you have fun with this! 275pts (LO only)

Technique Tuesday (week)
I love learning techniques and using them. I want to start putting them into a binder so I can pull them out more and use more instead of the same ones over and over. There will be two parts to this and you must complete both to collect points.
1. Share in a blog atleast 3-5 techniques you love to use, have used or want to use. (75pts)
2. Use atleast three of the techniques you shared on a lo. (275pts)

Your total for this is 350Pts.
Have fun and looking forward to seeing these techniques.

Weekly Pics:
7/4-7/10 = 200pts

Happy 4th of July! We are going to the State capitol to enjoy the festivities and fireworks. Of course hubby only chooses to go there each year because they have a Central Dairy where we get great ice cream!

Happy Independence Day!

We're doing something a little different today - going bowling and plan to overdose on the $1.00 hot dogs. I mean, how can I not eat classic 4th of July food on the 4th of July?

After that, we'll probably go to the city fireworks or crash my son's pool and watch the sky light up from the water.

Have a fun, happy, and safe day!

Now for the points. It wasn't easy figuring out the journaling points, but here goes. Let me know if you think I'm wrong.

I had 2988 words (38 words were hand written)...so that's 400 points for the first 400 words. That left 2588 words which I divided by 50. That left 50 which I multiplied by 25 points for each 50 words over the first 400 words. Ta da, my points for journaling are: 1650


1,650 for journaled words
10 for handwritten journaling
10 for me in one of the pics
10 for two pics
110 for 11 people in each pic
10 points for embellie (metal title) over picture
20 points for my own LO
20 points for 12 x 12 LO
15 for 3 papers
5 for one type ribbon used
12 for brads
15 for title letters
25 for 5 stamped images
10 for 2 doodled images
10 for two types ink (black ink pen for doodling, and black ink stamp pad for stamped images)
15 for 3 metal items (2 hinges and the title)
5 for hidden journaling (shown above)
5 for theme of family
25 for posting my current favorite theme. It's "clocks".
125 for using clocks on my LO *(doodled and stamped)
5 for updating siggy

total = 2,112

grand total = 2,237

AS per weekly challenge post

~*~Weekly Challenge and Photo Challenge~*~
These challenges MUST be posted WITH POINTS DETAILS by 11:59 PM PST Sunday to take points for the weekly challenges.


So if you do not post the challenges before midnight on Sunday you cannot take the points.

Hope this makes sense and if I am wrong someone please CORRECT ME!
