Beautiful Dua scrapped as today's freebie Download

As it's Ramadaan and dua is a form of Ibaadat, I thought today I'd share with you a dua I've always loved. . .

Freebies, Challenges and Ramadaan wishes

Hi Everyone

Before I get into scrapping talk, let me start by first wishing all Muslims well over Ramadaan (our month of intense spiritual devotion and fast). . . 

I make dua that we all reap the best rewards of this sacred & blessed month of Ramadaan, that we all are successful in the most important of tests, not only abstaining from food, drink & intimacy, but rather growing in Taqwa (God Consciousness) and Eemaan (Faith), attaining the very best of Allah/God's blessings and rewards, mercy and forgiveness, and striving (and succeeding!!!) in improving our characters and training ourselves to incorporate good habits to replace the bad, and maintain them for all the years ahead, Insha-Allah, Ameen.

My family and I wish all Muslims around the globe a heartfelt Ramadaan Mubarak and Ramadaan Kareem - may your Ramadaan be generous in blessings!!

Now for some scrapping fun . . .

At the forum the new HFD challenge has been up a few days
 And here's a preview of this month's participation prize . .  . A whopping 53 Papers and 86 Embies. . . Best pop over to the forum and get scrapping . . .

Freebie and some layouts of our FroggieLicious fun at the Aquarium :)

My family and I recently spent a fun afternoon at the Aquarium . . . Here are some pics I scrapped of our afternoon

When I saw their frog display I just had to take some pics to scrap with this cutey FroggieLicous kit. . .

I used Michelle McCoys' Froggie Licious kit available in her new store . . . or her old store at ScrapbookMax

Pop over to her store to get some freebies and see what other awesome new kits she has just launched.

If you're wondering about the strange size of these layouts, let me explain. . . I've recently taken to scrapping 2 pagers rather than singles, and since I want to print my next photobook as a A4 landscape - that's the size my layouts are in :) Hope you don't mind!

And just to let you in on some of the fun taking place at the forum . . .
Michelle also has her July Brag Book challenge up at www.craftyscrapschat.com  .  . . How does it work?. . . Easy as 1, 2 3!

1) Download this cutesy FREEBIE kit she made for the challenge
2) Scrap a bragbook size layout with this kit.
3) Upload the layout to the forum, remove the pic and send to her
At the end of the month, you get all the brag book pages sent in ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!  .  . . How awesome is that - a free kit AND a set of brag book pages . . . Not bad, not bad at all!! So what are you waiting for - pop over to the forum today and get scrapping
My quote challenge is also up

And Linda's Sketch, Jana's Boredom Buster, a font challenge, the Hide Find and Design challenge and lots of new freebies too. . .
So pop over to www.craftyscrapschat.com  and join the fun!

Last but not least . . . Here's a QP freebie I put together for you, using Michelle's Forever kit . .  You might remember it from my last post

Happy Scrapping

I'm back

Hi everyone

I'm back!!!  :)  Did you miss me?!?  Well, I know I've missed sharing my layouts with you . . .

Here's my 2 most recent  . . .

I scrapped it using Michelle McCoy's Blast of Summer kit . . . You can buy them individually (see below) or get the whole bundle for just $5 at her new store, www.craftyscrapsstore.com  . . .

While she's still restocking, you can still get all her kits (like the next one) at her old store at Scrapbook Max

This was scrapped using Michelle's Forever kit

I also have my July Quote challenge running at the Crafty Scraps Forum 

I hope you will stop by and play along. . . You can get this great gift as a participation prize for this challenge

And for a bit of inspiration . . . Here's what I did using this month's quote
I used an old Crafty Scraps Caboose kit (07/2010) called Girls just wanna have fun. Isn't it awesome??!
Till next time
Best wishes always
