Racking up the Calvinball Points

I'm playing Calvinball over at the JBS Mercantile forum.  If you want to get a lot of scrapping done this month and get points for things like shopping and eating chocolate, then you must play along!

The rules are easy confusing easy ... 

1. the rules are subject to change at any time by anyone.
2. layouts = 1 point
3. the layout is the gold standard. all other projects are measured against the almighty layout.  
4. smack talking is expected.
5. cheering on your teammates is also expected.
6. the reward is the huge feeling of accomplishment at the end of the month!

Here are a couple ways I've been slowly gaining on the competition:

One point for letting your kids use your supplies:  my adorable nieces walk through the door and it's immediately crafting time!  DS thinks the top photo looks a bit like grandma.

Another point for the almighty layout.  "Spray" is digital ... I just LOVE those limited edition Vellum Butterflies.  Extra point for 5 JBS items on a page.  And even another for blogging!

I used a template and ghost letters created by Patti Knox for this layout.  Wonderful, talented lady. Rest in Peace dear Patti!


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun, Betsy! I love your fresh layout with the stitched vellum!

  2. You picked the best colors for this adorable layout.

  3. Terrific page! LOVE what you've done!

  5. stunning page betsy! yay for calvinball! and crafty grandma birds. :)
