  • The Groove July 2009 Monthly Freebie Challenge

    Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!

    Hello from The Groove, Scrapbook MAX!'s *free*monthly newsletter.

    Each month, a featured designer offers a great freebie mini-kit and issues a challenge based on that kit.

    All you need to do is download the freebie, create a layout that steps up to the challenge, upload it to your gallery, and post a link to your layout in a reply to this thread!

    Details about this month's freebie and challenge are below!

    The “Freebie” Part!

    Donna Thomas has provided a bright, bold set of freebie elements, perfect for summer-inspired kits!

    The “Challenge” Part!

    Here's Donna's challenge:


    The CHALLENGE: Simply use at least 3 items from the kit to create a layout with the theme “For LOVE of Freedom,” and what this means to you!

    * * * *

    Happy Scrapping!

            This was harder than I thought. But decided the most precious thing we take for granted is being in a country where our children have the opportunity to actually be children, where in so many other countries children are denied that basic right. We take this so much for granted. We should be treasuring that freedom.
            All the best from Nanny Bernie.

                            Bless you Moonlightpearl!! LOVE your BEAUTIFUL layout!!

                            Gosh, brought up a good observation..Yes ..the USA is celebrating their independence day of the 4th of I'm using the red, white and blue..yellow cover FREEDOM in general.. not exclusive to USA.. I did put USA flag journal in the kit for those wanting to celebrate the 4th with this kit..but everything else..should help with YOUR expressions of FREEDOM..Freedom to go from country to country...freedom to raise your kids in a good environment...choose the best schools..etc.. and sooooo much more..Or Mom's freedom from responsibility for a day..yada, yada..

                            Please don't think of this as July US celebration only..You can use any of the elements and COLORIZE them to suit YOUR needs!! The only rule is use 3 items from the kit...

                            Hope that clarifies!! HUGS!!
