Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!

Hello from The Groove, Scrapbook MAX!'s *free*monthly newsletter. (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/thegroove/)

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!

Wendy Gibson has provided a lovely, elegant set of freebies perfect for mother's day layouts!

The “Challenge” Part!

Here's Wendy's challenge:

“ Mum’s The Word …so let’s celebrate mom in style! My challenge for May is for all scrapbookers to create a scrapbook page all about Mom! Without our moms we wouldn’t be who we are today! Showcase all the love you feel for your mom using some or all of the freebies I’ve created just for you! Or, if you are are Mom, make a page about yourself as a mother, you deserve to be celebrated too!”



* * * *

Be sure to check out the May 2009 issue of The Groove (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/newsletter/2009/05/the-groove-may-2009/). You'll find great "family" layouts to inspire you, a 10% off coupon on featured kits, and more!

Happy Scrapping!

My first challenge - used some of my own embellishments as well and some from my Scrapbook MAX program. My mother Unice is 78 years old, she still teaches fine needlework classes, judges at shows and an active member of a choir... how good is that!!! Amazing.

as i sit and watch my eldest daughter talking to her belly I know she is a mummy already so this is for her. Even though she can not hold her baby in her arms she loves her already with that protective mothers love.

My mum was simply the best! She has been gone now for 5 years, her name was Sylvia Esther. I used her name in this forum to honour her and to remind me to always try my best. Hope she is watching!

It would have been my mums birthday today so what better way to celebrate it than with a birthday page.
