SEPTEMBER is here! 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 SEPTEMBER'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 SEPTEMBER 10th.

If you are playing for points/prizes please send me $8.00 via USPS no later than SEPTEMBER 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
1020 SAINT JULIEN DR
APT 111
KENNER, LA 70065

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 $0.45

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!**

~*~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.


WEEK 1: SEPTEMBER 1-2, 2012
Scrapping Challenge

Photo Challenge


WEEK 2: SEPTEMBER 3-9, 2012
Scrapping Challenge

It's back to school week all across the country! That means school buses, school supplies, new clothes, and a regular back to school schedule. Summer's over. We're all back on the clock.

This week, you need to focus on the elements that surround the idea of school and going back to school.

Create a project or page using only ideas that are related to school in some way. You can use school bus colors, red bling for bus lights, colored pencils, fabric representing new clothes, etc ... your imagination is your only limitation.

You'll need to be ready to explain any "off the wall" product you use, but I think the concept is broad enough to fit just about any idea you might want to put out there!

Total points = 400 pts

Have fun! I'll be waiting to see what you come up with!


Photo Challenge 50 pts for each pic!

School Bus
New Jeans
Back Pack
Playground
Off We Go!


WEEK 3: SEPTEMBER 10-16, 2012

This week's challenge is to do a MONOCHROMATIC project! It can be a layout, an altered item, a home decor item, or 4 cards with different designs for +250 pts!

Use a picture taken this week in your project (9/10 to 9/16) for an additional +150 pts!

MAX weekly pts=400 pts


Photo Challenge

new +50 pts
small +50 pts
family +50 pts
love +100 pts


WEEK 4: SEPTEMBER 17-23, 2012
Scrapping Challenge
I'm challenging everyone to try Mosaic scrapbooking this week.

This mosaic needs to be 1" x 1" squares. A layout will have up to 100 squares so you will get 4 points per 1" x 1" square on your layout.

If you chooses to do a two page layout you can ONLY take up to 400 points for the 1" x 1" squares.

Here are some examples from past Mosaics that I have done.

This one I cut the paper into 1" x 1" squares. There are 40 squares on this layout so it would be 160 points plus the rest of the layout points.

Paris By DaNel Hicks

This one has both paper and photos in mosaic. There are 70 total squares so it would be 280 points before other points

The Lincoln Memorial By DaNel Hicks

This layout has 7 cut up photos and 1 whole photo.

There are 66 1" x 1" squares

This layout would be 264 points before other points.

The Washington Monument By DaNel Hicks

Here is another example. This is a two page layout. Page 1 is 61 squares (244 points) Page 2 is 67 squares (268 points)


Merry Christmas Mosaic By DaNel Hicks

This one has 70 squares (the tickets do cover over 1" x 1" squares. This one would be 280 points.

Bridgestone Arena By DaNel Hicks


And the last one is ALL pictures no paper. It is worth 373 points. If I had used another photo instead of the "title" it would have been a total of 400 points. (there are 7 photos so don't forget those points when adding your layout up)

My 1st Mosaic Layout By DaNel Hicks

WEEK 5: SEPTEMBER 24-30, 2012

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!****

I am in for sept. I may only do motivational. I seem to have trouble finding time to take points after I complete a LO, but I love the challenges. So I will be motivational for now and goal be 4

I'm doing the 30 day sketch challenge with Jami, so I'll be doing that here too.

Sign me up.

Motivational, though, I think. I tend to get a tad obsessive/compulsive when I play for points.

30 layouts. (I'm seriously going to finish Jami's challenge)

If you NEED a hostess for a week, I can do it if you really NEED one.

Sign me up. September 2011 was the first month I ever did this challenge. So I have to do it a year later.

I'll pay ASAP (this weekend)

Welcome ladies! September is going to start off a bit strangely because of circumstance beyond my control, i.e. Hurricane Isaac...We lost power again, but I never had internet at home anyway when we went back last night, so no power= no internet It is not just us who have no internet, but also the businesses and restaurants around us! So I can't even jump on public wifi! But the show must go on! I will be doing my best to keep everything updated and posted at the proper times--that being said--POINTS LIST is my next project to tackle, so that will be going up for sure today. The monthly will be up by Monday at the latest.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I got up early before work so I could check in with you all--if my job was 9 am-5 pm it would be the equivalent of me waking up at 3 am to do scrapbook challenge stuff and then going to work for 8 hours (well, I work 9 with an hour break). So needless to say, I will be BEYOND tired when I get off work this evening....UGH! I think coffee--lots of coffee--is in my future!

Going to work on the points list!

I hope things get back to normal soon Megan. I am stuck at my moms watching the lsu game since I dont get espnu. It would be nice to watch the game at home and do a little scrapbooking at the same time since it is going to be a boring game (we will prob win by a lot) but maybe it will end early and I can scrapbook tonight! I gotta start on day 1 sketch on 30 days of sketches

I wanted to share what I bought with my gift card. Since I didn't want to spend much over my amount so I decided to get a few small things. I am running low on buttons and embellies.
love these buttons Prima - Welcome to Paris Collection - Wood Embellishments - Buttons
I thought these would look cute with my beach pics
Chic Tags - Delightful Paper Tags - Soak Up The Sun Icons - Set of 8
and i liked the colors of these buttons and i love basic grey buttons
BasicGrey - Oxford Collection - Buttons
and this one was a wildcard. I am not a big mister but i like the look of them. I started seeing this new mist by american crafts and decided to try it
American Crafts - Studio Calico - Mister Huey's Color Mist - 1 Ounce Bottle - Heirloom Blue

I'm in again! I'm doing Jami's 30 day sketch challenge so I'm gonna shoot for 15 pages this month! Don't know if that's do-able but I'll try! School is keeping me busy and Gabi is gonna start gymnastics this month which means a 45 min trip there and back and an hour wait in between. So that will wipe out one night a week and then another night each week she goes to Awana. so we may be taking on too much this!

Jade, We are getting much needed rain in Missouri! Everyone has been posting on Facebook that they are sorry for the people who are being affected by the hurricane but it has been such a blessing to us! We have cracks in our back yard that are now at least 3-4 inches wide and you can see they go down at least a foot if not more! we were out of town last weekend and someone posted about a wildfire in our area that started from a spark on the tracks from a train! It has been scary.

That's been central OK for the past two summers. :-(

Thankfully, we got a couple of decent rains in August, and the grass is green, but a huge number of trees are dead, and the wildfire destruction is just horrible.

Central OK didn't get any of Isaac, but NE Oklahoma got a bit.

I wish there was a way to take all that water and spread it around a little, rather than feast in one place, famine another, and flood someplace else. :-(

Weekly Challenge

9/3 - 9/9

It's back to school week all across the country! That means school buses, school supplies, new clothes, and a regular back to school schedule. Summer's over. We're all back on the clock.

This week, you need to focus on the elements that surround the idea of school and going back to school.

Create a project or page using only ideas that are related to school in some way. You can use school bus colors, red bling for bus lights, colored pencils, fabric representing new clothes, etc ... your imagination is your only limitation.

You'll need to be ready to explain any "off the wall" product you use, but I think the concept is broad enough to fit just about any idea you might want to put out there!

Total points = 400

Have fun! I'll be waiting to see what you come up with!


Weekly Photographs (50 points each)

School Bus
New Jeans
Back Pack
Playground
Off We Go!

Yeah - our kids have been back for a week or so as well, but lots of places don't start until after Labor Day. I think the idea of starting before has to do with the number of school days required, and getting the first semester out of the way BEFORE Christmas holidays and having kids OUT before Memorial Day weekend.

Just what I know from all those years in the public school system.

9-5 Daily : Use something gooey on your layout today (like modeling paste, or stickles, or paint...etc).

150 points because it's going to make a mess to clean up!

this week has been long and tiring and its only Tuesday. I spent over 2 hours at Westin's speech evaluation. Which went well. He does have some problems nothing major but she would like to work on them. And we also talked about his eating and she is going to work on that as well. I had no idea she could do that. She got him to try a few things and we found out he loves apple jacks! How exciting. He even ate a few raisins. Lately his meals consist of spaghetti, waffles, oatmeal and granola bars. I am running out of things to feed that child. And then we went to the grocery store after work and now I am pooped. And have to work 8 hours in the heat tmw. Not looking forward to that. This heat needs to go. And I was ready to go to bed at 8:00.

9-6 Daily :

Today is the big points day. It's CHALLENGE STACKING DAY! Challenge stacking is the multi-tasking end of scrapbook challenges. Basically, what stacking does it take one layout and count it in more than one challenge.

For example, you could use the Color Challenge color scheme, with the Pet Challenge photo topic, a Page Maps ETC sketch, the Hoarders challenge to use up a long saved paper line, and then put it in the one, two, or multi photo challenge. That would count as a five challenge stack.

Your daily challenge, should you choose to accept it is to get points here by stacking challenges in the various SB.com forums. You can take 50 points for each challenge you can stack your project into, up to a total of six challenges for a total of 300 points.

This should be FUN to watch!

Awesome challenge Pat! I will have to spend some time in the challenges forum this weekend! I have to work Friday and Saturday night this week, and Kayla's co-worker from Alabama is coming and staying with us Thursday until Sunday! I had to work yesterday too, which leave me with the next 4 hours to get everything unpacked that the movers brought down on Tuesday!!! UGH!!! And what is Kayla doing to help?? NOTHING!!! I have 8 BIG wardrobe boxes in the living room alone! Then I have to clean off the dining room table where I have been scrapping and the couch/corner of the living room where I have been doing all my paper work...The bedroom, not as important--But I do want to clean the upstairs bathroom too and put together the shelf thing that goes over the toilet...SOOO I will not be on here much more today! IF I am going to be productive... See ya later ladies!

Jade, I hope you have a better end to your week!

Julie, WOW!!! Girl--YOU ARE ROCKING that sketch challenge!! WTG!!

Hi everyone. Sorry I have been MIA. It's really been a rough week with some family things I need to deal with and I'm not sure the dust has settled yet. On top of that I found out one of my aunts died yesterday so I will be making a day trip to Lubbock. And so very disappointed that I will not be joining Donna on the scrap weekend. It's been something I have been looking forward to for a very long time. Donna I know you ladies are going to have a great time.

Megan I am going to go motovational this month. I'm not sure how much scrapping I am going to get to do with so many things still up in the air. I have a few other commitments I have made here at sb.com that I will honor but I don't want to put too much on my plate.

I will drop in when I can.

thanks you Quay. It has been a long week and next week is another long week. Monday westin has his very first dentist appt. and then he starts his speech therapy twice a week, but they are only 30 min sessions so it should not be as bad as last session which lasted over 2 hours. But all our appts are early so I can still work :/ SO I am going to enjoy our weekend before it gets crazy!!
