Sign up for how many layouts and/or cards you think you can get done in August without buying any Scrapbooking supplies to get those pages done.

The only things you may buy are adhesives or photo development if needed.

We start August 1st. Then you scrap, scrap, scrap!


-----------------------------------------
Other info for the challenge!

This challenges is about learning or exercising self-control more than anything else. It's also on the honor system. No one is gonna check your bank statements or your stash to see if you've "goofed" or "cheated." It is also so we start using up some of the stuff we have bought and not used.

This challenge is for FUN! Above all else just make it FUN!

The true goal of scrapbooking is scrapbooking, NOT shopping/buying or hoarding pretty papers and embellishments.

This challenge is to encourage each other. Not to feel guilty about buying things.

No guilt with buying stuff either. If you goof, you goof.

Hope you all think this is a bit of a fun challenge.
Post your goal here. (Paste and copy the person above you so we have a list on the last post!

When you post your layouts make sure you put on it that it is from this challenge!

Good Luck and have fun!!!! Who is excited to get started!

WHAT?!?!?! I though I was supposed to shop & buy & hoarding pretty papers and embellishments! lol

I am game and I would love to have a goal set to try and get some stuff done! I have so many pictures printed, so many many more to be printed and then I can start thinking about Alex's baby book! OH MY!!

Hmm, how many pages.... I am going to set my number high so I will be forced to start soon. How about 35. Ok I am going to hit "post" and then I am committed to it! Wish me luck and be ready to see some pages!

I'll put in for 20 pages since I am on a roll to finish the year 2000

I ran out of adhesive today so I'll be getting it before the challenge starts(even if you are allowed to during the challenge)I just hope that another Cricut cartridge doesn't make a showing lol.

Yikes you go girls!!! Me I have an addiction, I mean all I need is to spend another 6 dollars at the LSS and get my 15.00 discount on my next order (now I won't reveal how much I had to spend to get that "discount")...and I got major awesome coupons at Archivers...listen to me making excuses...hmm I can do this I am positive. How many, well I better be honest and keep it low 10? I know I know nothing compared to 20 or 35. But the positive part of this, the first step in recovering from an addiction is to admit you have one, I'm just not sure I want to recover from my scrapbooking shopping obsession.

Last night DH and I made a deal.... if I can clean up my scrapping area and keep it clean (while still using it) for a month then I can get them! That man will do anything to get me to clean my area! I will post before pictures later.

Mine will all be done while kids are sleeping (or supposed to be) and on weekends so DH can take over Mommy-duty! LOL If only I had a door on my "area".

I am only going to set mine at 10 because we are still in the process of moving. My scrapbooking room still isn't done, but due to recent events, finishing the basement (where my space is located) is being put off for a while. I am going to set everything up in there anyway. I don't have to worry about buying anything either as I don't have any money to spend on new supplies.

Oh, this will be fun. So count me in too. But I'm also going to have to shoot on the low end as this next month is going to be absolutely crazy for me at work and I have my Mom here until August 8th. So, I'll say 10 pages.

If I do more, can I have "extra credit" and be allowed to shop more in September?

haha! Michelle you crack me up! I was also wondering where we are supposed to post them and if we should number each layout and add how may pages we have left. I assumed we would post in the August page thread?
