my goal- at least one page/day so 31 pages at LEAST.  We'll see how much beyond that!

Congrats on your baby.

My first year I came in 16th, and last year I made it to 14th! My goal this year is to beat that! Do I have the energy for that? Not sure, but I'll give it a go!

Congratulations, Christy!!!

 

I simply want to get scrapping again, so my main goal is to finish 10 pages. Setting the bar low, hoping to raise it once I get into things. I am starting an All About Me album next month and plan on making pages with my elementary school class photos and memories of each grade. That should give me a simple framework to work within.

Last year was my first time and I had 54 scrappy points. My goal is to exceed that this year, and of course to get as many bonus points as possible!

Can't wait to get started!

Last year was my first year calvinballing.  I had a blast and got a lot done.  Sadly, I didn't do much scrapbooking after that... The past few weeks I've been watching some scrapbook coach classes and organizing my stuff.  I was going to order a bunch of photos, but realized nope, I've got plenty to work with now.  So, my goals this year are to make a serious dent in the unfinished pages/projects/kits, leave myself notes as I go, use new techniques I'm learning and also make some cards for my upcoming craft show in April.

Hi, Maribeth!! I am going to say that the layouts will count if you made them in March, even if you don't have the photos. Also, You interpretted the rule perfectly. If you already counted the layout for the week and a new rule came out that could apply, it doesn't count. I'm glad you're joining again this year!! I can't believe you got so many done last time!t

that is how i played last year.  I was so bummed that I had made all of my easter cards in the first couple of days of Calvinball and then points were awarded later for making spring/easter cards (mine were already in the mail) - oh man, I could have really racked up the points.... oh well, that's part of the fun & quirkiness of the game.

okay, going to throw it out here... my goal is 30 layouts.  Last year I did 50 plus a bunch of cards & project life pages came in 2nd and had a wonderful time.  This year I have ZERO photos printed and haven't hardly scrapped since last year - - - gotta get it together if I'm going to be productive this year... really hoping the competition bug gets me (that was new for me last year, didn't know I had a competitive bone in my body until I played Calvinball... shocker) I've got hundreds of layouts stuck in my head, I'm really hoping to get them out of there and onto paper!  I am going on a retreat on the 31st so I know things will get crazy trying to prep and pack for that the last couple days of the month but I'm still going for it!!

My goal.... to do better than I did last year, to finish a wedding album I'm making for a friend, and share my layouts (as many as I can) on Youtube

I'm a youtube junkie, what is your channel name?  I would like to watch while I'm playing, if it's public.

My goal is simply to get back into scrapping.  My husband died 6 months ago, and I am just now starting to feel like myself again.  But I haven't done anything with photos since last summer, and I think it would be good to try to get back into it.  

 

I played last year and had a lot of fun and got a lot done.  Logistically, this year is just going to be a lot harder for me, since I am working and in school, plus single parenting my 7-year-old son.  But I think this will be good for me, even if my participation is somewhat sporadic.

I am so sorry to read about the passing of your husband, hopefully you will find joy in scrapping again and just maybe we can share a few laughs along the way...

First time playing and I haven't scrapped a single layout start to finish in months!  So I'm really hoping this will get my productivity to skyrocket.  

My goal is to complete 10 layouts start to finish.  

 

I need to get my January and February 2017 12x12  pages (probably around 6-8 layouts) done for our abridged family album and then I'd love to get 2-4 or MORE 12x12 Project Life more detailed stories scrapped and then those and a backlog of already finished layouts from early 2016 sent off to Persnickety Prints.  Then when they arrive, I want to actually get them filed away into page protectors in their respective albums.
