    Welcome to the Lilypad's 2016 Monthly Challenges! We're excited to bring you an expanded set of challenges with new themes, new learning opportunities, and a new member to the team!

    Our monthly challenge line up looks like this:

    Inspiration
    Journaling
    Style
    Random
    Template
    Scraplift
    Photography
    BYOC

    These are meant to be broad and very high level - your talented challenge hosts will take these and bring you some very specific and individualized challenges each month that we hope will keep you guys on your toes, and let you create pages you love!

    But wait! 1, 2, 3 ... there are 8 challenges! How does that work?? In order to give you guys a broader range of challenges, we decided to add an extra challenge to the mix! This doesn't change the reward system - your challenge rewards are the same:

    Complete 2 challenges: Earn a 10% off coupon
    Complete 4 challenges: Earn a 20% off coupon
    Complete 6 challenges: Earn a 30% off coupon
    Complete 7 challenges: Earn a 30% off coupon, AND a chance for a guest polly spot!

    What this means is you have a "free pass" - if there's a challenge that doesn't really suit you that month, you can skip it and still be considered for a guest polly spot! Of course, you can complete all 8 challenges if you want - we love to see that level of participation! But you only need to complete 7 for the 30% off coupon and opportunity to guest for us.

    But wait again! 8 challenges? There are only 7 challenge hosts ... or are there? We are excited to have Lori (lcpereyra) join the challenge team to help us keep the challenges fresh and fun! So your challenge team line up is:

    Amanda (gracielou)
    Ashley (ashleywb)
    Heather (HeatherB)
    Heather (talktoheather)
    Julie (mrs2a50)
    Lori (lcpereyra)
    Manda (mandakay)
    Renee (renee82)

    And with that, I will let you guys get started on your pages for February!

    Perhaps a silly question, but I'm new to the monthly challenges: do we put our layouts under Member Galleries, like we did with the MOC4 challenges? Or do we tag multiple options, such as Member Galleries and the specific challenge name? I'm going to take a few days to recover from MOC4, but I am hoping to keep up with the monthly challenges, too. It has been a great pleasure to join the scrapping community here!

    You can post them wherever you'd like it the gallery. I think most people put them in the specific challenge, but you could also post to the Member gallery and tag the challenge. Totally up to you!

    Thanks. I also have an unrelated question, but not sure where to ask it and think you might know. What is the typeface used for the word "four" in the MOC4 artwork that people have been including in their siggies? And where do we get the artwork saying that we completed MOC4?

    The beautiful "four" in our MOC4 logo was actually hand-lettered by our very awesome + talented @Liz of Paislee Press. If you love this style of lettering (I know I do!!!), you can see some different options for it in her shop, I particularly use this set all of the time in my Project Life.

    The "I completed MOC4" siggies will be handed out at the wrap-up chat where we announce the new Polly. It will also be available for download afterwards for those who can't make the chat.

    I have a question, if I've already completed and posted a LO for a challenge, but am REALLY not happy with it, is it ok to redo it and replace the one posted with a new one?

    @girlonmac(Lisa) Welcome Lisa! I'm not sure I understand your question. What are you posting your old page for, and where do you want to post it?

    I finished 7, but I don't see that my thread was moved to finished. Do you only move them over if we complete all 8?

    I move them if you complete all 8 before the end of the month. Once the month is over, I'll move everyone completed 7 or 8.
