Celebrate Friends with The Groove!

The August 2007 issue of The Groove is here, and we're celebrating friends! We all know that there's nothing like a great friend. Why not hunt through your photos for those pics that remind you of the joy of friendship, and scrap a fab tribute to your best of friends!

To download the August 2007 issue of The Groove (pdf), click here (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/thegroove/pdf/thegroove-aug2007.pdf). Or, if you would rather read it online, visit scrapbookgroove.com (http://scrapbookgroove.com).

CONTEST DETAILS
This month's contest is called "Friends Are Like Rainbows...". Not only do we want you to enter a layout that celebrates friendship, we're throwing in an added challenge: In your design, you must either:

A) Use the seven colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. (Don't worry - different shades of purple will suffice for the "indigo" and "violet" requirements!)

OR

B) Creatively complete the phrase "Friends Are Like Rainbows..." in journal text or in a caption (e.g., Friends Are Like Rainbows, Follow Them And You'll Find Gold!)

OR

C) Incorporate both of the challenges above!

We will be honoring 3 winning layouts. The 1st place winner of the "Friends Are Like Rainbows..." contest will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack Store. Two runners-up will each receive an official Scrapbook MAX! mousepad.

To enter, publish your layout as a JPEG image at High Quality and Web/Email size, and upload it to the contest page (http://www.scrapbookmax.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1901). The deadline is Monday, August 27, 2007, 5:00pm (CST).

We encourage you to reply to this thread after you enter the contest. Post a link to your entry and tell us a bit about it so we can all get in on the fun!
