BREAST CANCER AWARENESS CHALLENGE
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Challenge runs from October 20, 2009 through MIDNIGHT on October 31, 2009, Central Time, Kansas, USA. NO EXCEPTIONS. You MUSTWITHIN THE CHALLENGE TIME FRAME to be eliglible for the RANDOM DRAWING as stated above. Participants may post any amount of layouts in the challenge thread, but the participant's NAME is entered ONLY ONCE into the RANDOM DRAWING. Of course, we hope to have hundreds of members participate, and numerous layouts to admire -- especially for a challenge with such a worthy cause!!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and as some of you know, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 40 years old; after more than a year of struggling with its horrible effects as it spread throughout her body, she died only three weeks shy of her 42nd birthday... that was in 1971 when I was 14 years old. Obviously, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. More so now that my wonderful stepmom was diagnosed just last week with a malignant lump in her breast. The technologies of today are much better than they were 38 years ago, so my stepmom has a much higher chance of survival.
For this challenge, I have provided a set of freebies (preview below) for you to make layouts using the Breast Cancer Awareness theme. There are four (4) zip files (I got carried away making these for you, so the end result was 15Mb of goodies that I had to divide up into smaller uploads! LOL!). Download all of the files, and extract them to a folder of your choice. I have also provided a color pallette (right-click on the image and save to your folder with the freebies)... I used this color pallette in the making of the freebies. You will see that I've made PINK and BLUE in the freebie set. Everyone, please feel free to use ANY color combination of these that you want -- they all work together. And I know we have men out there, and men DO get breast cancer, so that was my original intent with the addition of blue (although many men look GREAT in pink!). Maybe some of our scrappin' men here on SBM will make some layouts with the men's breast cancer theme.
In the making of your layout:
1. You MUST use the PINK RIBBON from the freebies in your layout. (The text that is seen on the pink ribbon in the preview image below is NOT on the actual freebie image.)
2. You MUST use at least TWO (2) OTHER ITEMS from the freebies in your layout.
2. You do NOT have to use the color pallette when making your layout, but it is included for your convenience if you want to do so.
4. You MUST include at least ONE (1) FACT about breast cancer in your layout. To help you with this, here are the top three websites with information about breast cancer that will be helpful to you:
Susan G. Komen for the Cure5. UPLOAD your finished layout to the Gallery in the "Weekly Challenges" section (look under "Design Team Challenges"), then return to THIS THREAD and post the LINKED IMAGE. You can find the "Linked Image" code on your layout page under "Additional Info."

You MAY resize, crop, recolor, etc., any freebie WITHIN the Scrapbook MAX! software to suit your needs for this challenge. You may NOT completely redo a freebie in a graphics program so that it is altered from its original.
If you have ANY questions, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask!
On your mark... get set... SCRAP and have FUN!!
NOTE: the preview and color pallette, and the blue backgrounds zip and embellishments zip are below... the pink backgrounds and scalloped papers are in the next post, so don't forget them!!
