The Groove January 2010 Monthly Freebie Challenge
Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!
Hello from The Groove, Scrapbook MAX!'s *free*monthly newsletter, and a very Happy New Year!
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 the Groove Newsletter Challenges gallery and post a link to your layout in a reply to this thread!
Details about this month's freebie and challenge are below!
This month, designer Steve Russell has shared a gorgeous, golden kit for you to play with.
The challenge: Using as many items in this kit as you can, scrap a layout. Your page must include text that has the word "gold" in it (e.g. Like "Searching for a heart of gold"). Let your creativity "shine"!

I can't d/l the freebie kit....Anyone else having trouble?
I got it to download right away, thanks steve for a beautiful kit to work with!!
Did you try again? Are you still having trouble?
If so, can you let me know if you are getting an error message as well as what it says and at what "step" you are running into the problem?
I have tried to Open and to Save it. When it starts to open it it says, Not a Valid SBM or Template File. Don't know what is wrong.
My Doggies name who went to Doggie Rainbow was also named Rocky, and what an Angel he
was too... He was a Black Retriver mix. I sure miss him...You have a winner here, what you
did with this challenge is just beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I am pretty new to Scrapbooking
and I am surely enjoy what all these lovely talented ladies to. Angel hugs, Coco
I also am having trouble opening this. It send me to the internet to find the program to associate it to.
My third attempt
Here's my third LO for this challenge. Better then the first two I think Scrapbooking takes practice! And I'm loving it.... my husband.... not so much! ha ha

Well I went right to work on this one..This is such a pretty kit...I used my dog Rocky. He was a little rough around the edges when we got him but he doing so good I thought he needed to be recognized. lol...So here is my layout for this challenge. Thanks Steve I had fun using your kit.
Super cute, Christina! Rocky looks like a real "gentleman"!
