    Cool The Groove's June 2008 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 will offer a great freebie mini-kit and issue 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!

    There's MORE! Everyone gets the freebie, and three lucky, random participants will also receive an official Scrapbook MAX! mousepad. WOO-HOO!

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

    The "Freebie" Part

    Deanne Gow-Smith has generously supplied a freebie mini-kit to all our Groove readers based on her lovely full kit called Victorian Series Charlemaine. Find it below, attached to this post - download it, and use it to get in on the challenge!

    The “Challenge” Part!

    Deanne has issued this challenge based on her freebie mini-kit:

    Use the freebie mini-kit to create a layout. Add to this layout two papers or embellishments from a different source (i.e., not from this kit), but who's colors cooordinate with your page. Post your layout in a reply to the Monthly Freebie Challenge thread (June 2008).

    Three lucky, random challenge participants will get an official Scrapbook MAX!mousepad.

    Love the mini-kit and want more? Get the full kit today!

    So get the freebies, accept the challenge, and get in on the fun (and the possibility of a free mousepad!)

    Here is mine Deanne. I know you wanted use to add extras from other kits but I didn't feel I needed to. The mini kit was beautiful just on it's own. Many thanks.

    Here is my attempt. First time I have attempted a challenge as I'm fairly new at digital scrapbooking. I love the mini kit!

    Good job Girls,, nice to see what you've done with them.
    Seems you like just the blue and white... and it does always look lovely and "crisp" with stark white against deep blue doesn't it! thanks for post them.

    Anyone else having a go - let's see if you can introduce another colour altogether - The one that I think has added the most complimentary colours with the blues and whites I will give a free downoad of my new Chiffon Rose kit.( or another of you alrerady have that one)
    Trouble is you will have to wait til the end of JUNE as I go away on holidays on the 9th... but post away _ I'll pop in whenever I can for the next week and then when I come back I'll check out all the entries.
    so add another colour or even another 2 colours as well as the blue and white.... whatever you think looks nice with blue ... they can be patterern or plain.. from any other source -the challenge is to make it look like it belongs and actually enhances the blue
    Cant wait to see your entires in the challenge

    beautiful layout - Love your use of layers and the weaving of the blue bands.
    But no body wants to add another colour?

    the first one to actually accept the challenge and use another complimenting colour - I will give them a freebie just for being brave LOL - you can use anything from anywhere OR you can tweak these pieces ..

    Here is mine, I did two of the same but added color to the second. I also added a paper and a corner (used 4 to make the frame). Don't know if we were suppose to add what we made but I did. You can right click and save (thumb nails below layouts).
