**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.

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!**

I’m always realizing after a vacation that I have about a thousand pictures of my boyfriend and about five of myself, lol! So the following photos MUST have you in them – however you interpret the words is up to you!

Each photo 50pts max total 250pts.

1. Enjoyment
2. Food
3. Happiness
4. Peace
5. Love

Weekly Scrapping Challenge:

I am SO in love with www.efferdares.com, it’s a young & fresh website with “Dares” (remember the days of Truth or Dare?), which are daring challenges posted by their team and executed in an amazing and creative way. Your challenge this week is to tackle a Dare that I found on their website that I especially LOVE! It’s called the A-Z dare!
Here’s a link to the original dare, but I’ll also explain it here! Follow the link to also see examples of their work!

http://www.efferdares.com/2011/11/dare-186.html

The idea is based on a blogger named Kara who made this A to Z List about herself. What our scrappers at efferdares then did was take either one of the letters, or the whole list, and make a layout using this as the theme and the journaling.
This is the original blog, which you can use as your guide:

http://www.ijustmightexplode.com/2011/09/a-zs-of-kara/

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it (I’ve been watching too much Mission Impossible), is to create a LO like those lovely ladies at efferdares did, using this blog as your jumping off point. Be sure to check out the efferdares website link above to see some examples.

+300pts for creating your very own A to Z layout!
+100pts if you use a picture of yourself on this layout
= max total of 400pts


WEEK 4: MAY 21-27, 2012

4 photos (one big, three small)

WEEK 5: MAY 28-31, 2012

May 2012 Monthly Challenge

As many of you know, I am moving. Right now. (Well, not literally, but this week!) I found out about a week ago so I am packing and the movers will be here Monday 5/7/12! Most of my belongings, including the majority of my scrapbooking room will be in boxes in storage for the rest of the month. We will be staying at Kayla’s dad’s until we find an apartment in New Orleans that is affordable and safe and not too run down. Hopefully that will only take a month! In the meantime, I am trying to figure out what I could do to satisfy my creative urges while I am living in a bedroom, out of a suitcase, without my scrappy things. I have come up with 2 options and I am asking you to play along with me by choosing a project listed based on my life: “SCRAPLESS IN NEW ORLEANS: SURVIVAL MODE 2012.”

OPTION 1: Be creative virtually--through Pinterest. I thought about it and I figured, why not take advantage of a fabulous creative hoard that already exists and find my satisfaction through the creativity of others? I can create pinboards and gather creative inspiration for the future. However, I know this will not satisfy my get dirty with paint & glitter instinct.

YOUR MISSION: Create at least one pinboard on http://pinterest.com/ (if you need an account pm me your e-mail address and I will send you an invitation to join Pinterest--in the past you have had to wait a while if you request an invite yourself). Pin at least 12 unique scrappy/crafty projects, that you have never done before, to your pinboard that you would like to try. They do not all have to be complex, but to complete this mission choose at least 2 of your pinned projects (you can choose more, but not less to meet the effort requirement) to create in real life. Your projects must meet an “effort requirement” (ask if you are unsure if your projects are involved enough). All of your projects combined should take about 6-8 hours of work to complete, so one day of scrapping/crafting effort should go into making your virtually inspired projects a reality. Share the link to your pinboard on the thread for +100 pts. Then share your minimum of 2 Pinterest-inspired projects you created, uploaded to your gallery, and linked to this thread for +1100 pts. MAX: +1200 pts



OPTION 2: Do pseudo-scrapping with something like a Smash Book or art journal.

YOUR MISSION: Acquire or create a Smash Book/art journal (heretofore referred to as: “the book”). The book may be any size you desire, but mini-books will have a greater number of required pages to be completed. The book can be an unused (or used!) journal, composition book, notebook, or you can put together a book with scraps of paper & binder rings. The book can be a “Smash Book” which is from K & Company. Or any other collection of paper or other material bound together that can be scrapped on/written on/created on. Once you have the book, your mission is to create in it! YOU CAN CREATE WHATEVER YOU WANT!!! THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU TO EXPERIMENT IN! You will get +1200 pts for creating the equivalent of at least FOUR 2 page spreads or about 6-8 hours of creative work. If you have a mini-book (4”x6” or smaller), double the number of spreads to at least EIGHT 2 page spreads, but make sure you put in the required amount of effort regardless of the size of your book. MAX: +1200 pts

You may only take points for completing one option!

Wish me luck! I will be creating as I can along with you! If you have any questions, please ask!

MA

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.

6. Please update the 1st page with your challenges at least one time by the Tuesday of your week, at least once by the Friday of your week, and at least once on Sunday of your week after you post the last daily challenge for your week! So you need to update the 1st page using the AnythingGoesChallenge login (you will be pm'd the login information before your week as hostess) a minimum of 3 times if you host an entire week of challenges. The first time you update, on Monday or Tuesday of your week, please post BOTH your weekly challenges and your daily challenges under the correct post (either the Daily Challenges post of the Weekly Challenges post on the 1st page of the thread).


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

Hi Megan .

I've been away for a bit with school and general life activity mayhem and madness. But I'm ready to be back.

I'd love to play this again - I'm always SO productive when I do!

I'm not sure whether or not it'll be motivational or points, but I'll decide in the next day or two.

I can host a week if you need - would PREFER it to be later in the month, like AFTER the 19th. School is out then, and I'll have a little more TIME to plan and prepare.

I'm in but for motivational this month. I have so much to do horse wise that I am not sure how much I'll get done.

April started strong and I've posted layouts but still not had time to add points so I did not do as well as planned.

I can host a week if needed. (Not the last week as I will be out of town)

I'm going to shoot for 12 layouts. That's three a week, which I should be able to accomplish. If not, there's something wrong.

And I'm going to PayPal my money, Meg.

I just do better - that is, I accomplish more - when I play for points.

Thanks!

Lets get Sketchy. There are so many resources for sketches and so many creative people. Find a sketch from a place you do not normally go to. In other words no sketches from PageMaps, Pencil Lines, Scrapbooks Etc……See if you can find a sketch in your favorite scrappy blog or google “scrapbook sketches blog” and see what comes up. I found LOTS of blogs that share sketches. Here are a few

http://letscapturethesesk etches.blogspot.com/
http://picasaweb.google.com/pegges73/Sketches#
http://www.freewebs.com/leishaspageplans/apps /photos/al...

Find a sketch and share it on the thread for 100 points
Make a layout with the sketch you found for 300 points

Please be sure to give credit to the site or blogger where you found the sketch and to link the sketch back to it’s original owner

5/1-5/6 Photo Challenge For 50 points each
Favorite scrap tool
Favorite drink while you are scrapping
Favorite snack while you are scrapping
A photo you can’t wait to scrap

i want to play! I'm home with a sick kid today and yesterday and have been using that time to get everything back in order for NSD! Hoping that gets me back into scrapping! This is the longest streak i've gone without scrapping a single page It will be difficult though too as this month is always busy with end of school activities and graduations. so set my goal at 10 please!

Hi Julie! Hi Melissa! Hi Quay!

I'm looking forward to this running points thing again. Every time I play this challenge I'm SUPER productive.

I don't even CARE about the points - I just find that I tend scrap more when I can total them up!


Going to drop down my sketch for this week's points. I picked this little beauty up at the BasicGrey blog. Here's the link to their blog :
BasicGrey Blog - Sketches Search



That's 100 just for the drop, right?

I sent my money to Megan this morning, and I got my blog and my siggy set up today too.

So

Hey Pat, Megan's usually super duper awesome about updating everything fast and quick but she's in the middle of a hectic move across the country, so she might still be trying to find a second. I'm sure it's no problem to post your layout and go back and add the points when the list is officially up.

That's what I did. I just figured it would be up by now because she usually IS on top of things so quick.

I did not realize she was moving. That definitely affects things on her end, doesn't it?

I am really struggling to make it through the next 2 1/2 weeks at school! Several of my close colleagues are leaving and it looks as though I'm going to have no input in their replacement! There are so many issues going on that unfortunately I feel like I may be taking my frustrations out on my kids! I am going to have a margarita now and unwind cause this stress is taking a toll on my body and spirit! Another reason I really need to get back into scrapping! Stress relief!

Megan, good luck on your final!

Quay, therapy can be painful so glad to hear it is going well! sounds like you'll be up and running in no time but I'm not surprised! cause like you said before you always "run" with this challenge! Ha ha!

Jade, I bet you are glad to have that chapter of your life officially behind you! Here's to a new chapter! Hey I'll have another margarita for you and toast to that! I really need a drink (or 2) after the day I had!

oh Julie I totally feel you right now! We go till June 8th this year. So many changes are coming and yesterday was so stressful because I had to tell my students that I was not going to be looping with them to 4th Grade and oh did the tears fall so then I cried and it was just a total downer. Then add in all the rain and MAP testing and it was very depressing. Friday is almost here!

Wow, I'd never make it to June! We get out May 22! Starting tomorrow though we go on this crazy block schedule for end of course testing and I will only see each class 8 more times before the end of the year! So surely I can make it! Hope you had some say in the matter of looping!

I had to actually dig in the trash tonight to find my pictures for todays challenge. I threw out 2 pictures yesterday that I have been dreading because they were blury and the color was way off but I had been holding onto them because I loved the memory. Will post pics and points tomorrow.

Basically it's the same thing you've done, except I copy it into MS Excel. Excel allows you to put in mathematical calculations so on the row where it says "cardstocks or papers" I put =5* and then designate the next block (cell) to be the number of papers I used. Then at the bottom, I designate a "sum" block which totals up the points for that layout. I have another "sum" that adds those points to my running total (which I have to put in every time since it changes) and gives me a new total.

When I get a LO done, I go through and delete all the lines that I didn't use, put in the numbers for the items that I did, let it total up, and then copy and paste those cells into the forum.

It sounds complicated. It's really not. I taught myself how to do it, so I know with a little bit of tutorial experience, anyone can learn.

If you HAVE MS Excel, I can just email you a copy of my spread sheet if you want, since it's already set up.
