I'm hosting a new Challenge, and a Hot Paws freebie

Hi Everyone

I'm all excited about the new challenge I'm hosting at the Crafty Scraps Forum . . . It's called Name the kits . . . and is really super easy . . . 

I scrapped a layout using free kits you can find either on Michelle's blog or the Crafty Scraps Forum. All you have to do is figure out where each element, alpha and of course the background came from . . . And mail me the answers. . .  Visit the forum now to join the fun :)

Here's a sneak peak at the layout (which I'll be giving away as a quick page as part of the prize) . . .

I also recently scrapped these layouts, but haven't yet had a chance to post it until now . . .

This first layout is done with the May Caboose kit
You can get this HUGE MEGA KIT FREE by entering the May Caboose Challenge (also at the Forum). . . Yes, even if the month has passed. . . Isn't Michelle just a DARLING!!!

The next one, today's freebie,  I scrapped with Michelle McCoy's adorable new Hot Paws kit (also a freebie kit!). . .

It's a scraplift of a layout by Farmer Lisa . . .The pics were taken at a fundraiser for the Bone Marrow Registry, as bleeds and tissue typing are still VERY EXPENSIVE here in SA . . . The black bandana's we're all wearing were also sold as part of the Bandana Day fundraiser, the first of a now annual event organised by the Sunflower Fund.  The bandana's were chosen as many people undergoing chemo lose their hair . . . The Fundraising association I formed part of had the sweaters printed for our fundraising bleed & big walk. . .

And yes, all 3 of us are registered on the Bone Marrow Registry :) . . .We had great fun this day . . . with comedians, a shavathon and best of all . . . lots of funds raised for a great cause!!

Friday Frenzy Hop - Memorial Day & Jumuah Hadith

Hi Everyone

This has been yet another hectic week and I'm soooo, sooo very ready for the weekend!

Today's our little guy's entrepreneurs day and he got it into his head to sell gatsbys . . . If you've ever met him, you'll know that once he decides on something you're going to have a hard time convincing him otherwise. . . So I've been up since 4am frying chips and preparing the veggies so that ideally everything would be ready by 7am . . . My hubby got up a little while later and pitched in nicely! Even though he was a HUGE HELP I wish his mood & tone weren't so foul! :( . . .  Afterall, the kids are both at school with plenty of time to spare, and even he (hubby) was back home before the first bell!

But it's Jumuah, a day of blessings, so I'm not going to let him get me down . . .  Instead, I'll wish you all Jumuah Mubarak (Blessed Jumuah/Friday) and show you the the hadith I scrapped for you last night. . . Remember, you can get these straight to your mailbox by registering for my Inspirez Group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/inspirez

I used my friend Lisa's (Farmer Lisa's Wild Daisies) beautiful Spring Whispers kit to scrap this hadith . . . You can get it free on her blog  as it was part of the Crafty Scraps 1st Blogtrain last month.


But I have another freebie for you today . . . A Memorial Day Quick Page for the Friday Frenzy Hop . . . Just click on the image to download  
My hubby took these pics in his last trip to America during Aug last year. . . 

I scrapped this layout for you using the followinig FREE kit

You can get it by participating in the Hide Find & Design (HFD 11) Challenge at Crafty Scraps Forum  . . . And just in case you missed any of the Memorial Day Quick Pages our team has created, here are the links to the various blogs . . .








Zabra-Scrap   =====> You are HERE

Don't forget to leave some love as you pick up each freebie :) We love hearing from you . . .

You can also see more of my layouts by inviting me, Zabra Scrap as a friend on Facebook :)

Have a great weekend!!!
