Every month, you'll be emailed a link to the current issue of The Groove, which is always full of tips, tricks, ideas and inspirations to help make your great digital scrapbooks even groovier. You'll also get cool freebies and - everyone's favorite - there's a layout contest to enter (the winner gets a fab Scrapbook MAX mousepad!).

September's theme is-you guessed it!-"Back to School". We can't wait to see all your creative school-themed layout submissions for our "Back to School" contest (ends on September 21, 2006 - so get crackin'!). Here's an excerpt from our "Musings" column on Page 1 to get the back to school imagery flowing:


"...There is always a change in the air on the first day of school. A sort of chill – not unpleasant – that signals the end of summer. Like the school bell, it calls us back.

Happy September!
