We all have to keep our own scores on the honor system.  I'm thinking we could have a separate thread to post our scores on.  Then we could edit them when we had updates?

Ok I'm in. I'm not a lover of load so I won't be getting crazy with this. I give myself permission to fail.

Can I suggest one point for 10 layouts put in protectors and album.

Okay it was putting the layouts in page protectors that lured me me to the field?.  That's my main project for March and you should see the stack - um, make that stacks!!  

 

How about 3 points for 2 page layouts?  Me thinks those are tricky!

Same here. Also, I'm not very quick or good with changing rules, but I've got the taunting down to science.

So if the rules change do we have to go back and rescore? Or do we just apply the new scoring from then on...

points awarded are permanent!  and rules tend to not change . . . mostly a constant adding to/adjusting type thing.
