Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!
Hello from The Groove, Scrapbook MAX!'s *free* monthly newsletter!
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 and use the elements to make your challenge pages in Scrapbook MAX!. Then, 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 Kristi Cakebread has shared a fresh gardening-themed freebie kit - awesome with a variety of different photo types!
Gardening is about tending to something with tender loving care, and watching it blossom. This month, we're challenging you to pick a photo of something you are proud to have tended with love - could be a person, an achievement, or anything that fits this idea.
Make two layouts with this photo using the mini-kit: one using any combination of the elements "as is", and in the next, re-color the elements you choose to closely match the main colors in your photo.
The layouts can be identical (except for color) or completely different, but the photo or photos should be the same. Also you don't have to post your layouts at the same time - just be sure to try two throughout the month. Have fun!
NOTE: The mini-kit attached is in .zip format. Just download the file, then extract the images. (You can drag and drop them right into Scrapbook MAX!).
