NOVEMBER 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 NOVEMBER'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 NOVEMBER 10th.

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than NOVEMBER 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

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 if you meet your goal and if you have the most points at the end of the month, then you are the winner in this category.

2. Most Points 10 or Fewer Layouts: If you set your goal at 10 or fewer layouts and you meet your goal BUT do not exceed 10 layouts for the month then you are eligible for this category. If you complete more than 10 LOs then that moves you to other prize categories.

3. Random Drawing of All who Complete the Monthly Challenge: Complete the monthly challenge as well as meeting your monthly LO goal and you will be entered into a random drawing for this prize!

4. Most Daily Challenges Completed: A new daily challenge will be posted everyday. If you complete the highest number of daily challenges and keep track of how many you complete in a blog on sb.com during the month, then you will be eligible for a prize in this category. If there is a tie, then there will be a drawing using random.org. Daily challenges are usually 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 the daily challenges at your own pace and you may combine several of them on the same project. (PLEASE NOTE: To be eligible for this category, please start a blog at sb.com to list your challenges completed.)

5. Random Drawing of Everyone Who Meets Their Monthly Layout Goal: Meet your monthly layout goal and there will be a drawing done on random.org of everyone who met their goal but did not win in another category.

***** You will only be eligible for prizes having met your monthly layout goal. Each paying player may only win in ONE category.*****


Layouts are counted towards your goal in the following manner:
*8x8 or above including 6x12, 8.5x11, 12x12=1 layout (2 pagers count as 2 layouts)
*2 6x6 = 1 layout
*3 4x6 or 5x5=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 layouts a project is “worth”, 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, 4, and 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 on the 10th of the month!

~*~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.



11/21/11~11/27/11
Weekly challenge: This week is family week. Do a LO about your family. Must showcase a group pic of your family. +300. If you use fall colors take an additional +75 points!

family
turkey
dessert
kiss
sky
+50 pts each for a total of 250 pts





Week 11/14 to 11/20
Photo Challenge
This week's photo challenge is all about history (what else could you expect from a History Grad student ehe?)
1) something at least 100 years old
2)something cool or historic in your town
3)something that was passed down in your family (or in someone elses if you need to) from at least 1 previous generation
4) a tree (metaphore for a . . . Family tree he he he)
5) A child (cause they are the future!)

Weekly Challenge- Do some research. Find a LO you did not long after you started scrapping. Post that LO here. Tell us a little about it and why you started scrapping in the first place. Scraplift yourself and show how much you've grown in a new LO. +300 Make the new LO about you as a scrapper for an extra +75

Week 11/7 - 11/13

Weekly Challenge: Find a new tutorial that you have never used before and post it here for 100 points. Use the tutorial on a project for 200 points. If you use it on two projects take an extra 100 points, for a total of 400 points.

Photos: Take 5 pictures of your home for 50 pts each. They can be of anything that represents your home.

Weekly Challenge 11/1-11/6:

Read the photo challenge first, because the weekly challenge is to make a layout using the same theme, of "Why do you do what you do?". Create a layout using one of your weekly pictures, or just create a layout that follows this theme and make the title your answer. 400pts. Ask me if you have any questions ladies!


Weekly Photo Challenge 11/1-11/6:


This week I was inspired by this new photo project going on globally called "wdydwyd" (Why Do You Do What You Do?). It's an online gallery of photos of people with their written answer to the question, "Why do you do what you do?".

Check out the website here, and be sure to browse more than just the first few photos.

http://www.wdydwyd.com/

This week's photo challenge is to take 2 photos that follow this theme. Ask you husband, partner, best friend, child, "why do you do what you do?" and take a photo of them holding their answer.
Each photo is worth 125pts for a total of 250pts.

~*~November's Monthly Challenge~*~

Since we're reaching the end of the year, this month's challenge is a "Review" challenge. For the monthly challenge, create pages that review the months and main events of your year of 2011!

For each page, you need to incorporate photos & events that took place in that month. The idea is to create a tiny time capsule for each of the individual months of the year.

Each single page LO that you create is worth 200pts (plus all the points you can take from the points list), and if you do a two-page layout for the month, take 300pts. So that means if you get super crazy and do all 11 months in single page LOs, it's 2200pts. And if you do double page LOs, you could get 3300pts! If you complete ALL 11 "review" pages, then you will also take an additional bonus of 500pts.

TOTAL MAX POSSIBLE: 3800pts

Things you need to have on your page:
-to have at least 3 photos from the month
-to document at least 3 events that took place during the month
-The month as part of your title "A Look at January", "January in Pictures" etc etc
-There must be journaling of some type, even if it's only a few words
-You must include the dates of the different events or pictures

Have fun and happy scrapping!! Ask Laurin if you have any questions :).

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.

I want to try this, motivational only. Before I decide on a LO goal I have a question: Do digital LOs count, or paper only? I need the motivation in both!

I am in again Last month was so hectic, I had so many plans and so many last min things. I did end up making my goal, but I will keep it low and say 4 LO's this month! I am hoping this month is going to be calmer but I have a lot of things planned on the weekends. But I can't wait to get started!!!

Okay now that I have a better understanding of layouts and numbers I'm going with 6 this month 'cause it should be hectic. Can't wait to see what the monthly and weekly are maybe then I will change my number. Still on the fence if I will play 'for reals."

I am sooo sorry ladies! Life happened, well tooth pain happened and I was pretty much curled in a ball in bed all day until Kayla got off work and brought me my pain meds. Well, now I am in a LOT less pain, but oh my, I am sooo wiped out! So I will be here for a little bit.

Planning to:

1. post today's daily & the weekly

2. post the points list

3. assign weeks to challenge volunteers that have already volunteered

4. post the monthly!!!! (I'm most excited about this!)

Going to get to work on those things now!

LAURIN!!!! If you could do this 1st week I would be grateful! I am sorry to spring it on you last minute, so tell me if you can't do this week. But I am going to wait and let you post the weekly if you decide to do this week. So i will only post a challenge for 11/1. I would be happy to give you a full week as well, or another half week! So let me know if you are up for hosting another week and I will give you one!

Yay You're back. So sorry you've been in pain. Good pain meds are one of the 20th century's greatest inventions!

If you need anyone else to take a week I think I could be evil. . . I mean creative for a bit. If you have enough volunteers I'll happily wait till December though.

Weekly Challenge 11/1-11/6:

Read the photo challenge first, because the weekly challenge is to make a layout using the same theme, of "Why do you do what you do?". Create a layout using one of your weekly pictures, or just create a layout that follows this theme and make the title your answer. 400pts. Ask me if you have any questions ladies!


Weekly Photo Challenge 11/1-11/6:

This week I was inspired by this new photo project going on globally called "wdydwyd" (Why Do You Do What You Do?). It's an online gallery of photos of people with their written answer to the question, "Why do you do what you do?".

Check out the website here, and be sure to browse more than just the first few photos.

http://www.wdydwyd.com/

This week's photo challenge is to take 2 photos that follow this theme. Ask you husband, partner, best friend, child, "why do you do what you do?" and take a photo of them holding their answer.
Each photo is worth 125pts for a total of 250pts.

~*~November's Monthly Challenge~*~

Since we're reaching the end of the month, this month's challenge is a "Review" challenge. For the monthly challenge, create pages that review the months and main events of your year of 2011!

For each page, you need to incorporate photos & events that took place in that month. The idea is to create a tiny time capsule for each of the individual months of the year.

Each single page LO that you create is worth 200pts (plus all the points you can take from the points list), and if you do a two-page layout for the month, take 300pts. So that means if you get super crazy and do all 11 months in single page LOs, it's 2200pts. And if you do double page LOs, you could get 3300pts! If you complete ALL 11 "review" pages, then you will also take an additional bonus of 500pts.

Things you need to have on your page:
-to have at least 3 photos from the month
-to document at least 3 events that took place during the month
-The month as part of your title "A Look at January", "January in Pictures" etc etc
-There must be journaling of some type, even if it's only a few words
-You must include the dates of the different events or pictures

Have fun and happy scrapping!! Ask me if you have any questions :).

What's with me? I used to sleep in late on weekends and now I get up before 8 and can't get back to sleep.

Might as well scrapbook. I need to make cards and gifts and check out a scrapbook store that's new to me.

This is going to be fun. I don't think I have pictures of something for each month though. But I may start doing this each month from now on. And make a book for each year from this year forward.

Danel, I did this one year and it is great to look back on! I made the left side a calendar to journal what we did that month and the right side contained all the pics! Here is an example. They are all in my gallery somewhere! The calendar I made in microsoft word and I typed in what we did throughout the month. Then it was easy to print and add pictures. At the end of the year I felt like I had captured the year and wasn't behind in my scrapbooking! They make great section dividers too so you can see the month at a glance and then put all layouts from that month behind it for more in depth views! I don't know why I didn't keep doing it!

Laurak - WOW! I worked my butt off last month and only got 19 LOs. Way to go!

Jade - that's frustrating. Hope you get your order soon.

Laurin ~ LOVE LOVE LOVE the monthly challenge. I've spent the past four hours pouring through my photos, selecting at least 3 that represents each month in 2011 and ordered them online. I'd intended to do only 9 or 10 LOs this month, however, this challenge may have ruined that plan. There's NO way I can fit just 3 photos per month on a double LO. It'll probably have to be at least one LO per month.

Question Laurin - we can use hidden pockets, accordion pull outs, and flip out attachments to our LOs to get more photos and journaling in, can't we?

I don't have the best camera in the world - I use my Droid's camera - however, I'm thrilled it labeled all my photos by date so I could tell what day they were taken. What a trip down this year's memory lane. Thanks!

I have a question about the monthly challenge- does it have to be 3 photos- or can it be a combination of photos and keepsakes. For instance- in April's I plan to include my pink slip (sad but- a big part of the year)

Great Monthly. I love taking photos but I apparently do not take enough! I have photos for every month but not photos that chronicle 3 events for every month so I am going to have some months missing

Trying to get photos uploaded to Walgreens so I can get my weekly done.

Hope ya'll are having a good weekend

This week's photo challenge is to take 2 photos that follow this theme. Ask you husband, partner, best friend, child, "why do you do what you do?" and take a photo of them holding their answer.
Each photo is worth 125pts for a total of 250pts.

Here are a couple of layouts I did last month that I added things to. I'm not counting points except for the 2 points per photo shared on the list. I did not add any points towards the layouts because I didn't want to figure out the new stuff.

These two I added the photos from Halloween

This one I went to purchase more letters and they did not have the same kind. They had black foam ones that were smaller. But here is the one layout finished

April By Senora_x





This is great!!! I love this and I plan on doing this full time starting 2012. I will do my best to get all 11 months for this year. I just don't know if I have enough photos.

I do have one question about your examples. How did you do your lettering for April? I love it!!

Danel, all of my lettering was cut on my wishblade! I think it was the basic grey monogram lettering font and I just sized them to fit the space.

Ok. I just did a search and that is similar to a cricut.

I just need to buy some neat font cartridges for my cricut

For the Monthly.

I just went through my calendar (to make printable ones) and noticed that I will more than likely have 3 photos per month except for March. (some may all be from the same event) but I have many events that I can talk about and journal.

So I will make pages and just not get the full points for March. I'm kinda excited. I thought more months may not have enough photos.

Now to take photos this month.

Hello Ladies! I'm back! After taking the summer off and reorganizing my scrappy area in the basement and generally just being a slug...I'm ready to jump back into scrapping.

My goal is going to be 10-we'll see how I do with that.

Julie, I was near your neck of the woods a few weeks back. Two daughters and I visited some family at the Lake of the Ozarks. I waved when I got off at Kingdom city....did you see me? lol

Megan, hope you are doing better.

Jade, I remember trying to find scrappy time when the girls were little - always a challenge.

And a big hello to the rest of the gang!
