Celebrate Friends with The Groove!
The August 2007 issue of The Groove is here, and we're celebrating friends! We all know that there's nothing like a great friend. Why not hunt through your photos for those pics that remind you of the joy of friendship, and scrap a fab tribute to your best of friends!

This month's contest is called "Friends Are Like Rainbows...". Not only do we want you to enter a layout that celebrates friendship, we're throwing in an added challenge: In your design, you must either:
A) Use the seven colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. (Don't worry - different shades of purple will suffice for the "indigo" and "violet" requirements!)
B) Creatively complete the phrase "Friends Are Like Rainbows..." in journal text or in a caption (e.g., Friends Are Like Rainbows, Follow Them And You'll Find Gold!)
C) Incorporate both of the challenges above!
We will be honoring 3 winning layouts. The 1st place winner of the "Friends Are Like Rainbows..." contest will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack Store. Two runners-up will each receive an official Scrapbook MAX! mousepad.
To enter, publish your layout as a JPEG image at High Quality and Web/Email size, and upload it to the contest page. The deadline is Monday, August 27, 2007, 5:00pm (CST).
We encourage you to reply to this thread after you enter the contest. Post a link to your entry and tell us a bit about it so we can all get in on the fun!
And now for everyone's favorite – THE MONTHLY FREEBIE, generously supplied by our "very own" Esther Barry!
Esther creates lovely kits for the Scrapbook MAX! Booster Pack Store. Here's what she says about her work: "Soft as an easy chair... That's what I aim for in my style. Soft colors, gentle themes. I hope I'm growing in that direction! ''
