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.)

*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!**

~*~MARCH MONTHLY CHALLENGE~*~

For the March Monthly Challenge, you are going to use the Scrapbook.com Scrap by Color tool. There are 2 ways to choose the main color for your layout. You can use “Photo Match” or the color wheel. Photo Match analyzes a picture(s) you upload to the Scrap by Color tool and shows you the main colors in the picture(s) you uploaded. For the color wheel option, you simply select a color from the color wheel and the choose the shade of the color you want to be your main color. You are going to have the opportunity to use both of the options to choose a main color for your 4 layouts + 1 layout/card/altered item (5 projects total).

Three (3) of the layouts must be done by uploading a photo or photos and using the Scrap by Color tool to analyze the colors that are in the photo(s) and choosing one of the resulting colors as your main color. One (1) layout must be a color that you choose from the color wheel. The 5th project can be either the photo color analyzer or a color you choose on your own.

If you look at the top right hand side of the scrap by color page you will see 5 different color schemes you can choose from using the main color: Monochrome, Complementary, Triadic, Analogous, and Split Complementary. If you click on each of these after you have chosen your main color, it will show the other colors that are monochrome, complementary, analogous, etc. For the monthly challenge you are to make one project using each of the 5 options available on the top right side of the scrap by color page. You are going to get your main color by uploading a minimum of 3 different pictures or sets of pictures for your layouts, 1 color you choose from the color wheel for a layout, and 1 that can be either your choice or based on the photo analysis.

Once you have your main color, and you have selected your color scheme, you will make a project with the colors that the Scrap by Color tool provides. Here are some examples of what the screen might look like when you have the results you are going to use on your project:

Scrap By Color: Monochrome (March AGC) By Megan Ann

Scrap By Color: Monochrome Sketch Example (March AGC) By Megan Ann

Scrap By Color: Complementary (March AGC) By Megan Ann

Scrap By Color: Triadic (March AGC) By Megan Ann

Scrap By Color: Analogous (March AGC) By Megan Ann

Scrap By Color: Analogous Sketch Example (March AGC) By Megan Ann

Scrap By Color: Split Complementary (March AGC) By Megan Ann

You can post your projects as you complete them and take your points for them as the month progresses. However, you do not receive any Monthly Challenge points until you have complete the monthly challenge.

When you complete all 5 projects (one with each color scheme) please post all 5 projects together in one post and label which color scheme each project used, then take +1200 pts for completing the March Monthly Challenge!

N.B. There is a video tutorial that you can find on the Scrap by Color page (see link in 1st paragraph) that explains how to use the scrap by color tool. You can watch it if you need to, though the tool is pretty self-explanatory and user friendly. Also PLEASE ask any questions you have, chances are someone else had the same or a similar question.

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!****

Hi Megan....this sounds so interesting and like just the thing to kick me in the scrap pants to get me going again. I'm only thinking that I'm going to probably have questions along the way, so if you don't mind me bugging you now and then, I'd love to play.

Our paypal is all wonky right now b/c we've switched banks, so I'll just send a check if that's OK.

My goal will be 10 LO's.

Great! So good to see you all! I will update the players list later...now I am going to grab some scrapping time while Kayla is at work!

Hey Lori! We never mind questions! This is a very helpful & supportive group! Some of the ladies have been in the challenge longer than I have been hosting it! (And I have been hosting 2 1/2 years!) So they know the ropes & help me out with fielding questions! It is great to have you!

WELCOME Lori & Brenda!

Welcome back Jade, Shalene, and Angie!

Ok, March I'm in! Put me down for Motivational 10~! But this time I'm going to get back in the habit of tracking points, I've been slacking off the past few months since it's been so busy!

I'd also be up for a week of challenges Megan, if there's still one available, but I can't do the week of the 18th-24th ;).

Yay March! I better find my mojo again!

Weekly Challenge 3/1-3/4

Still going along with the theme of my son's birthday, here's a challenge for you. He was born on 3-1-05 and he's 7 today. So I want you to use the following items on a layout.

3 different pieces of paper-You can use all patterned paper, all cardstock or a mixture of both. (This just refers to the main paper on your layout, not including pre-made embellies such as journaling cards, etc.)

1 kind of bling-glitter paper, stickles, jewels, etc.

5 other embellishments. Use a couple buttons and a few flowers, etc.--but it must equal to 5!!

7 Choose one of the following: 7 lines of journaling (no more, no less), a 7 letter title, or make a list on your layout of 7 things (7 reasons I love you, 7 reasons why I hate laundry , etc.)

You may add anything else to your layout that you would like..as long as you have these items included!!

+300 points

If your layout is about a birthday, give yourself an extra +100 points!!

This is what I put in my siggy line:

FEBRUARY Challenges
AGC 7/2 LOs
10956 pts
25/29 DCs

1. The 1st of 4 lines is the month... (DUH--I often state the obvious!) Some people have more than one month's AGC info in their signature at a time, so it is nice to know which is the current month!

2. the second line has AGC (the challenge name) and the number of LOs I have completed out of the number of layouts I made my goal for the month. (You update this tally to get points for updating your siggy--if you completed a layout.)

3. The 3rd line has my points total (this is always updated to get the 5 pts for updating your siggy).

4. The 4th out of 4 lines is optional, it is the number of daily (not weekly or monthly) challenges completed. It is helpful b/c at the end of the month I will ask how many daily challenges you have completed.

The only info required in your siggy (if you want the 5 pts when you update it) is the number of LOs you have completed toward your goal so far this month, your monthly layout goal, and your current points tally!

Also a TIP! Only update your siggy after you actually post your points details to the thread! Your points only "count" if you upload the project to your gallery & post the project and points details to the thread!

Hey ladies just a quick drive-by, have to write an exam today before 1 pm! ACK! I still need to study & I only have 2 hours to finish studying!

Going to post the points list & monthly after school (I finish at 2:30 and then have to run a few errands)! Thank you for your patience. And if you see a points list up before then, it means I am playing on my computer and NOT studying! I should be reprimanded harshly. There is a hint as to what the monthly challenge is going to be about if you check out my gallery--look for the pics that have (March AGC) in the title.

Lori, you can post your answers here on the thread..or in a NEW blog post!!

Photo challenge-you take a picture representing each of those words that I gave you and post them here on the thread and when you do that, then you can take the points for them. The photos are open to your own interpretation.

I really need to redo my scrap space! I need more storage and a better table. Any suggestions? I had a ton of scrapbook cubes, but those got lost in the "move" so I am starting from scratch and a large folding table which I hate. I really want a nice scrap table and get some cubes to put all my stuff in, but not sure where to look for a table. Thanks for any help.

I have an old kitchen (maybe dining room?) table that my mom bought at a thrift store. The top is a bit scratched up, but you have seen pics of my table...you can never see the top anyway! I would check out a thrift store/salvation army type place, maybe even craig's list for used tables. I love mine and besides the cosmetic stuff it is in great condition!

I really need to redo my scrap space! I need more storage and a better table. Any suggestions? I had a ton of scrapbook cubes, but those got lost in the "move" so I am starting from scratch and a large folding table which I hate. I really want a nice scrap table and get some cubes to put all my stuff in, but not sure where to look for a table. Thanks for any help.


I have an old kitchen (maybe dining room?) table that my mom bought at a thrift store. The top is a bit scratched up, but you have seen pics of my table...you can never see the top anyway! I would check out a thrift store/salvation army type place, maybe even craig's list for used tables. I love mine and besides the cosmetic stuff it is in great condition!



I agree with Megan. The desk that is my scrappy desk was getting ready to be thrown in the dumpster because of some scratches and the keyboard pull out drawer had broken off. My hubby 'rescued' it for me! It has lots of scratches, but I don't care, because that way I don't have to worry about scratching it up more or getting paint, glue, etc. all over it. My scrappy room is in the back of my house, so no one ever sees my desk unless they intentionally go back there..but again..it doesn't matter to me! I LOVE it! I'm sure you could find something pretty cheap at a yard sale/flea market as well!

Jade That's A Huge Bummer About Your Cubes! I've Always Wanted A Scrapbook Room Full Of Them From Floor To Ceiling (Add That To My Wishes! *lol)

I Agree With The Ladies About Getting An Old Dining Room Table.. David Brought Me Home A Small One That He Wasn't Able To Sell Because It Didn't Have Matching Chairs & Even Though I Prefer My High Top Desk... I Catch Myself Using The Table For More Of The 'Messy' Projects!

But If Your Wanting Something 'Pretty' I'd Recommend Ikea! I've Been Drooling Over The Desks There For Years! I Think They Are Reasonably Priced & Everything Comes In Pieces So The Boxes Will Fit In Your Car! They Even Have Tables Built With Cubes.. Which Sounds Perfect For Ya!

Jade - I'm with Megan on the Craigslist - you can get awesome stuff on there for sooo much cheaper than brand new! Or check out the ads for "moving sales" where people are getting rid of tons of stuff all in one sale because then the prices go even lower because they're in a rush ;).

If it were my birthday, I would want...

1. A weekly (daily?) maid service
2. A chef for dinner
3. Weekly laundry service
***ok, that's enough service, I think!***
4. New clothes that actually fit right
5. A vacation to someplace tropical
6. Scuba diving lessons
7. A new kitchen (for my chef to be able to work, of course)

If you're wondering about the absence of scrappy things, well, I don't need a birthday to get those! +77

thanks ladies for all the help. I have been checking craigslist for things since I want to move out but don't have much furniture. I'll keep my eye out for a nice dinning table to use as my new scrap table. I was thinking when I move out my dinning room would prob turn into my scrap space anyways lol

Ok, here's another question...

Can I combine the challenges? For example, can I use the scrap by color tool to complete the monthly challenge, but also have it be completing a weekly challenge, or do they have to be completed on separate projects?

you can combine any of the challenges as long as the weekly is done in that week. Everything else can be done whenever and used all together in 1 project!

Thank You Megan! I Love Trying New Things!
I'm Playing With The Color Wheel Right Now *lol

MONTHLY QUESTION:

You Did A Great Job Of Explaining The Monthly Challenge! I Just Wanted To Know If We Need To Use All 4 Of The Suggested Colors.

For Example.. (Color Wheel*Triadic) I Choose Pink As My Main Color & To The Right In The 4 Boxes It Shows Pink Again With Blue, Green, And Purple. Do I Use Pink As My Main Color In The Layout & Add Touches Of Blue, Green, And Purple?

Also.. Can I Add Other Colors Such As Yellow, Black, White, Grey?

& Would A Photo Count As A Color? For Example My Dog Has A Purple Bandana On In A Photo, Would That Be My Purple Or Do I Need To Embellish In Purple? .. I Hate Purple *lol

Should We Take A Photo Of Our Screen.. Print Screen?

1 More *HeHe*
We Should Match The Colors The Best We Can To The Suggestions Right.. So I Shouldn't Use Neon Green When It's Suggesting A Pastel Green *Big Grin

Sorry For All The Questions, Thanks!
