Sunbonnet Sam In Spain and Italy Released…

Sam In Spain and ItalySo today marks the release of Sam In Spain and Italy. I’d like to tell you why I made the choice to release these two together… Usually, when I choose which ones go up each month there is a reason behind it.

Here in Italy where I live currently, if you speak Spanish, you will find that the languages are very similar to each other. It’s interesting in that respect because Spanish is literally a second language to most of America now. When I tell people I live in Italy, it doesn’t surprise me that many wish to visit this beautiful country, I try to tell them what they shouldn’t do, and at the same time I like to mention that if they speak Spanish, they will do well speaking to Italians since the languages are so very similar. This is why I chose to put the two together for the release month.

Sunbonnet Sam in Spain is the 17th free block offered for the Sunbonnet Sue and Sam Travel the World botm and Italy is the 8th country to be released as a Flickr Reward block, making the Sunbonnet Sam in Italy the 15th Flickr Reward block offered.

This release also marks the voting for October on your choice of what should be released. Your choices are Egypt and India.

If you’ve just found this Block Of The Month, each month at the first of the month, you get to choose what will be released for the next month. The winning block is released as the Free block, the other is the FlickR Rewards block.

There were several people who turned in blocks in the Flickr group, in the past few weeks. If you haven’t visited to see the blocks, be sure to go and see the other blocks. Sometimes it helps to see what others have to do to get your own creative juices flowing. I love each one of them, it’s amazing to see what other people do and how they interpret their own colors to use.

When you finish and post/upload your block to the Flickr group, you’ll get one of the blocks that will go up for sale free. If you end up finishing the 24 released in 2016, you will get them all free. It’s a great way to get a “missed” block also. Details to turn in blocks is below the download images below, and will also be added to the Guidelines and features post. I will also add it to the menu page here.

Please note: You can finish any of the blocks at any time during 2016 and upload them to the Flickr group to claim one of the blocks for sale. For every block, you upload to the Flickr group you can get 1 free. The one exception to this is if you make as an example 2 Sam In Brazil blocks, you still only get 1 free choice.

I know, you’re waiting for the download, so let’s get right to it.. Here you are…
