That would require some creative paper piecing to get a kraft background, a dark background and a patterned background on the same page lol

Still, 124 point layout ain't too shabby!  Never underestimate a Calvinballer.  :razz:

We're coming for you, jumpgate!  Even if I need to put one of my big fat CB pages per album!

 

And aren't you in the NO SCRAP zone?  I'm sure I saw you cross the line into there.  Now you have to sing the Sorry song until someone catches up to your score...

I "took yesterday off" and will probably be missing next weekend  -- Oldest is coming home and I'll have to give up my scrap space.

-Obviously time for a dark patterned background framed in kraft...

 

And a no title layout that uses 5 different fonts for the title lol

Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

- that ones a bit harder... maybe a pocket page with titles on the cards, but no overall title... I think that will work.

I think I'm going to claim a "sick" point for yesterday -- I missed a couple steps as I was bringing groceries down and I fell, twisted my ankle and hit my head.  Twice.  All's well -- nothing broken, just bruised ribs, knee, and hip and no signs of a concussion.  Until we knew that, I had to stay in the dark and couldn't use screens, so I couldn't tally or upload my Sunday layouts.  I'm stressed out now -- It's gonna be really hard to catch up to @Jumpgate!!!

Glad you are okay, and hope you get back to scrapping soon.

Well, I tried making the 127 point LO, but there were some limitations. For example, I don't have anything for #32 (glitter glue or dots) or for #44 (manual die cuts or embossing folder) and there were some contradictions (ex: use 5+ photos and make a LO with no photos), although @Skippydoo's suggestions above are making me rethink some of those. 

 

But I did manage to make a 100 point LO! Will post soon to the gallery. It was really fun to make!

 

Now my next challenge is, can I top 100 points for a single LO?  :razz:  :banana:  :o  :D

This is almost my level of clutziness -- IMPRESSIVE!

 

I didn't scrap at all on Sunday so ... you all have a chance :)

I have nearly triple the points I had last Friday, but man that 100 point layout is a little intimidating! I will be scrapping up a storm this weekend.

We are indeed slipping in the Leaderboard, Ladies.

 

I think that if anyone has more than 1000 points, they should be made to take a NAP for a week or so!!!

 

I will have limited time this next week to work on some pages to fill in an album from last year--6 or 8 pages' worth.  Thinking if I score 100 points on each of those pages I can leapfrog over those 1000+ point people.  Then I will be HAPPY to take a nap.

 

(Of course that plan will be shot down if Maribeth gets to post all her pages and claim all her points today.)

If I made a 100 point layout, it would be so random and chaotic that I'd be too twitchy to sleep. Of course, If I made it about Calvinball, then I coiuld get make that work.  Hmmmm... Now you have me all psyched to try this. But it will wait until the last week of CB. Get those extra points at the end.

I was shocked at how many points I had. I did pull lots of point-grabbers to my table and tried to get em all on every page for the last 11 or 12 that I did. I think some looked too busy but they were kid photos so I didn't mind. Might need that nap today! It's really a lot of work tallying -- took me about 4 hours to go thru my pages and enter data to my ss. I will try a new process next Friday. And start earlier. And I've scrapped all my low-hanging fruit -- much more research and hunting down pics to go with memorabilia this coming week. Still having fun, though!

I need to be more strategic with this game. I've just scrapped as usual with my old photos. Time to clear my table and stock it with easy Calvinball points! Trouble is I can't remember how old my old supplies are, so I don't claim those points. Seems too much trouble to try to look them up.
