~Monthly Challenge~
Sketches...a sketch a day!
Do a sketch (or pagemap as it is sometimes called) a day! Yes that adds up to 31 LO's! But, you can do a card format or a LO format!

You are responsible to pick out the sketch
. You can find some here (scrapbook.com or on other websites and on pinterest) Then post the sketch and the ie: LO or card. You don't have to have each sketch done on that day. You can post several sketch LO's or cards, in a group. Just like you do with just the LO's! You can combine them with the dailies where possible! You can take points as well.

IF you post 31 sketch LO's or card's by the end of the month you will get a SUPER AMOUNT of 10,000 points. You have to do all 31 days by the end of the month! Keep a running tally on your siggy of all your LO's and card's done for the monthly.

Any questions? If so just ask!

I would love to play too! I am new to scrapbook.com. In fact, this is my first post. This challenge sounds right up my alley, as I am an accountant-- love all the numbers and points. Plus I need some motivation!
I would like to play for motivation only this month so I can get the hang of it. I'd like to get 15 pages done.

Okay I'm gonna try and ramp it up in March. My layout goal is going to be 20. I have got to get back to working on my layouts, plus I have a couple of crop days scheduled in March-so let's see if I am a "go-getter" or just plain crazy ....

Put me down for 15 pages and if I do more (yeah right...lol) can I up mine? I have several crops so I am thinking I'll get 20 plus done. My average is 12 to 15 pages per crop.

Welcome Sue!! I am so glad you got off the fence! I know we ALL we be so excited to get to know you better!

Let's do this...I'll put you down for 15 LO's as your monthly goal. If you do more that is super, you can do as many as you want as long as you meet your goal! The more points you get on each LO just puts you closer to the grand prize winner of MOST points! SO crop away like a mad woman and you could be the WINNER in March!!!

The points can be a bit confusing at first but, all you need to do is ask and everyone is more than happy to help you out.

We love chatter here, so talk talk talk!!

Can't wait to see your work!!!

DAILY-
1. use a new technique on your LO 100pts

WEEKLY-
Make your own scrap kit! Big or little put something together someone would be able to put scrap. Take a picture of before and after and
(scrap your own kit) and post that on the thread! 400pts

Photos:

something springy 100pts
something wobbly 100pts
something fuzzy 100pts

MARCH MONTHLY CHALLENGE

Sketches...a sketch a day!
Do a sketch (or pagemap as it is sometimes called) a day! Yes that adds up to 31 LO's! But, you can do a card format or a LO format!

You are responsible to pick out the sketch. Then post the sketch and the ie: LO or card. You don't have to have each sketch done on that day. You can post several sketch's LO's or cards, in a group. Just like you do with just the LO's! You can combine them with the dailies where possible! You can take points as well.

IF you post 31 sketch LO's or card's by the end of the month you will get a SUPER AMOUNT of 10,000 points. You have to do all 31 days by the end of the month! Keep a running tally on your siggy of all your LO's and card's done for the monthly.

Any questions? If so just ask!

Hi all!
I'm taking a breathing pause from the crazy world I live in. Sorry for being mia, I don't think I will be able to catch up on the February thread, so I hope it's ok to start anew with this month!!!

I so wish I had a scrappy weekend at home - haven't seen my scraproom in over a week. But we are going home to my folks tonight and stay over the weekend. They are not ok, and I need to go see them. HOpefully I can get my mom to scrap some tomorrow. She would do good to get her mind on fun stuff!!!

I'll be back later!

Oh, and Quay - what great challenges!!! The monthly is a tough one. But if one can make cards, it might be doable...

I have a questions on how to score a 2 page 12x12 layout. I'm planning a layout for tomorrow and not sure how to score it.
I score 50 points for each page being larger than 8x8 - right?
Let's say I have 4 pictures on each page- do I get 20 points for 3+ pics? Or 40 - 20 per page?
Let's say I use the same cardstock for the background on each page- is it 10 pts--or 20 pts.

I guess what I'm wondering is: Do I tally the points together as 1 layout or as 2 separate pages?

thanks for the help! Can't wait to get started!

This one is trickier because it says "different cs/pp" so I count the different cs colors and pp's and multiply that number by 10. So red & pink cs would be 20 and a polka dot and butterfly pp would be 20 for a total of 40 pts.

Sorry I have questions!
On the weekly you say before and after pics-do you mean a photo of a kit and then as the completed layout?

On the monthly can we find pagemaps or sketches already done or do WE can to make the sketch ourself?

Very cool challenges! Good morning, ladies!! DH is much better and switching to oral meds and hopefully home later today. Thank you so much for praying for us! Hopefully home and do some cleaning because friends are coming on Sunday and I doubt they would think scrapbooking is more important than a clean house, LOL!

On the weekly...Yes make the kit then scrap it. (I'll go add that to the front page)

On the monthly...You find the page maps yourself, and you are welcome to make the page map yourself, then scrap it. ( I will add this one as well to the front page.)

Good questions...anymore just ask!

Kena, you're on the right track!! Our prizes are so much better than a statue you would have to dust!

So tonight my daughter has 4 friends over for a sleep over! Good lord I hope I make it safely through the night. Tomorrow I'm taking them all to the base water park so I can get break...probably read, take my laptop for some shopping and digital scrapping :-)

Wish me luck.....I'm trying to hole up in my scrap room while they are watching a movie.
