Inspirez (Yahoo Group), CS Sale extended, freebie & a Blogtrain coming soon

Hi Everyone

As some of you know, I have been sending out a Jumuah email on Fridays. What I only realised today, is that I've been doing it since 2007!!! Tjoe, that's a loooonnngg time!!! I could hardly believe it! As you can imagine, my mailing list has grown over the time, to the extent that sending out my personalised Jumuah emails take over most of my Friday . . .

Then today I had lightbulb moment and realise setup Inspirez, a Yahoo Group, which will replace the current individual emails, and hopefully make things a bit easier for me.  . . . If you've seen some of my recent Jumuah / hadith cards, that's the kind of thing that I send out . . . Hadiths, duas, inspiration from the Quran, sometimes just my own reflections. . . Well, if you've enjoyed or benefitted from them, why not join the Inspirez Group by submitting your email address to the right of this post. Once you've submitted your email address, you'll receive an email asking you to confirm your subscription request. Once you've done that, you'll get my Jumuah email delivered straight to your mailbox.
Alternatively, you can sign up with this link ttp://groups.yahoo.com/group/inspirez/join 

Back to some scrapping news . . . Well, remember the sale I was telling you about. . . Well, it's been extended . . . 

Michelle's been soo busy she hasn't had time to change the prices of the SBM Templates and Quickpage Sets back to their original prices....Soooooo....she decided to EXTEND the sale until Friday....How cool is that?!? ..
Now you have an extra few days to stock up on ALL the ones you want before the sale ends... Here's just one of the sets available at the Crafty Scraps Store. . .
 
 
This set was made with Michelle's gorgeous new Polkie Dots kit. . .
 

Here are some layouts I made with it . . .

Also, don't forget the ~ Hope For Brady Charity Kit!
"Hope For Brady" originally started an autism awareness kit project that Michelle, of 4 My Babies Scraps was going to do to EARN the money that would help purchase equipment to help her nearly 4 year old, autistic, non verbal, son, Brady, learn to communicate. With this equipment HOPEFULLY, someday he WILL learn to speak. When she mentioned her idea to a couple of her design friends, and told them what she was planning to do for her son Brady, everyone wanted to help! Her friends told their friends, and their friends told their friends, and suddenly Project "Hope For Brady" was born!
FYI to non digi scrappers...there are also tutorials included in the kit, and the BIG Bundle to help you LEARN to digi scrap! So what could be a more perfect time to start digi scrappin', and help a good cause in the process?!? With your help this special project WILL be a success, and after helping Brady we plan on helping even more children, starting with Katie's (of Just So Scrappy) nephew Kyle who is also affected by autism. Once we have helped the kids in our families, then all future proceeds for "Hope For Brady" will be donated Autism Speaks where it can help even MORE kids in need!

Even though my kit is not in the preview, it is included in the bundle, so stop over and support this great cause NOW!!!!

Jumuah Mubarak Freebie

Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu Everyone

Firstly for some news . . . My life's been a bit hectic recently so I've decided to give designing a skip for a bit. I've also stepped down from Michelle's Creative Team, at least until I get a better handle on things . . . Don't get me wrong, I'll still be scrapping to my little hearts content whenever I can, doing the challenges in the various forums and sharing my QP's with you all . . . I'm just giving myself a bit of a break from deadlines and rather scrapping as and when I can >wink< . . .

Today I have a hadith/dua (prayer) to share with you all . . .
Click on image to download todays Hadith card at 300dpi

I scrapped this beautiful hadith using Michelle McCoy's beautiful Misty kit available at the Crafty Scraps Store

Hope you like it!! And please pop back later or tomorrow as I have another freebie I'll be posting then, promoting my own "Hope for Brady" kit . . . Pop by later to read all about it . . . Your support would make such a HUGE difference!!!

Best wishes always
Zaida
