Not sure yet how we will be running the Team Challenges over the months of June, July and August. Thought I would ask for input so we can best meet everyone's needs.
We could keep right on doing what we have been doing: set up new teams and ask for new challenges each month.
We could do two of the months and take a short one month long holiday. Not sure which month would be the best break for most people.
We could lump two--or even all three--of the months together. Have one sign up for the grouped months, one chance to add new challenges. Your points would carry over until the end of the 2nd or 3rd month, depending on how long that challenge is set up to last. Again, I am open to suggestions as to how this would work: which months to group together...
Looking specifically at MY summer? I'll probably have scrapbook time in June but with DS coming home on leave in July (into early Aug), we'll be focusing on making memories not scrapping them and I'll probably be on hiatus from the challenges until the very end of August after he leaves and the girls both go back to school.

I'm also good with whatever everyone decides but I voted for keep them monthly. Although I know I've taken a break over the last few months I plan on coming back to the teams when I return from my vacation. Aside from that it's winter for me which is when I do most of my scrapping.

June is coming up fast, and our team leaders have agreed to take on new teams for the next month. And we have leaders for July and August. But I was hoping to hear from more of you with this poll, so I am tagging team members here. If you have already responded anonymously, or you responded but I missed it, sorry for asking again. If not, please vote &/or give us a shout about what you want to see happen over the next few months.
Was also hoping to hear from the people who have participated in our monthly challenges in the past, just not this month. If you think you may be able to join us again over the next few months, please vote &\or comment.
Thanks for helping. And if you just "don't DO" challenges, that's okay. But if there is something that could be done about the structure and the type of challenges that would make it something that you WOULD do, we just might be able to make that happen! If you have questions, please let us know too.
Just remember that we are all in this for the fun of it. Even when we are competing for points, we are creating the pages and cards that we wanted/needed to do anyway. Sometimes it is just more fun to do that together!
And if you can think of someone else who may want to play along this summer, please tag them.
I voted from keeping it the same. I keep missing signing up for teams because of crazy schedules and the one month I did, there was just too much going on to keep up. But with summer I will actually have a slower pace and I'd love to join in again. I've been scrapping, but I need some inspiration and a kick in my butt to get going more!
I did vote in the poll but did not make a separate post.i had voted to keep it the same but plan to play along even if it changes.
One idea I did not see in the poll but might be interesting was to have the same two teams and same challenges that last the full three months. I’m not sure if that puts too much on one or two people... and I sure wouldn’t want to do that... but it might be helpful for people to know they can come/go all summer... rather than be tied to a shorter deadline.
Thanks for the tag. I'm not sure I have the energy to keep up with points and challenges (Cardtober was exhausting!) but I'll consider it. It might be better use of my time here than scrolling the Other People's Drama threads! : P I'll take a look around, but I'm OK with whatever if I do join in. Summer isn't particularly different for me than any other time.
I'm the lone vote to combine the months. Summer is very, very, very busy for our family. I have enough trouble keeping up with monthly challenges as it is. During the summer the only time I'll have for scrapping is at the monthly crops I attend.
Thanks for tagging me, grammadee. I’ve given challenges a few tries, but find I’d rather stick with my own game plan with the layouts that live in my head. I love popping in though to see everyone’s creations. It looks like you’re always having a good time.
Thanks for tagging me and for taking this on, grammadee.
I love the challenges and love looking at everyone’s beautiful pages but find the point part of it to be a bit of a bother. I won’t say I wouldn’t come back and join in the challenges again at some point but don’t plan to for the summer so I didn’t vote.
Thanks for tagging me grammadee! I voted to keep them the same, but I'm good with whatever is decided. I'm not sure when I'm going to be joining again, not June for sure, but possibly July. I also liked it when we combined months at the end of the year so that would be my second choice.
