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!

Fiona Storey has provided an attractive, masculine set of freebies perfect for Father's day layouts!

The “Challenge” Part!

Here's Fiona's challenge:

“Seeing it is June and most of us will be celebrating Father's Day this month, I thought Fathers would be an apt theme! Using at least 3 embellishments and 1 paper from the Male Order mini kit scrap a page or card with a Father Theme.”

* * * *

Be sure to check out the June 2009 issue of The Groove (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/newsletter/2009/06/the-groove-june-2009/). You'll find great dad layouts to inspire you, a 10% off coupon on featured kits, and more!

Happy Scrapping!

Here is my first one, just a quickie. This was a lovely moment, we had just flown across the country to see our first grandson Jenn. Gary was having his first cuddle and is with our son Jerome, who was so happy to have us there to celebrate the birth of his first child. So 3 generations of Greens.... Don't you just love babies....
