Welcome Ramadan

today is the first day of Ramadan. for the next 30 days, Muslims will be observing the fast during this month and i would like to wish all my Family & Friends, a Blessed Ramadan!

it went pretty well for everyone here at home minus the 2 Little Ones. they don't have to fast until they are ready :) poor Ron suffered a migraine towards the afternoon and Thankfully he's feeling better now. we had a simple break of fast with fresh milk and sweet dates. i cooked rice, veggie soup and beef with soy sauce. nothing beats having that feeling of Gratitude that we are so Lucky and Blessed to have what we have.

kids are having their One Week school holiday and nothing planned for us all this time. since we're fasting, it's stay @ home mostly and having to go back for remedial classes for Aysha. they have a school trip to Desaru on Tuesday and hope everything will go well.

Aneesa had an audition this afternoon and as always, location is foreign to me! didn't resort to taking a taxi like i used to years before ;) took a bus and got directions from Ron and after much searching and walking, we found the office!!! somewhere in Chinatown...and Chinatown is a HUGE place! hehe...

we've been to quite a number of auditions for Aneesa lately but somehow, she wasn't what they were looking for. i'm not bothered. they called, they want to see her, we go. same goes for everyone else going for auditions. Best of Luck! :D

now that September has arrived, time for a new challenge at {Create} Make It Happen. we've added 3 New {Creative} Designers on the Team and do check them out. the challenge is to use Office or Stationary supplies and i think we've got plenty of those ;)

Scrappin Kids Guest Designer
Thanks to Wati for having me as their
Guest Designer this month!

the challenge is to use a photo of your
Little Ones that reminds you of you :)

As I Remember It
i made this layout of Muesa and Aneesa
because this photo reminds me of the times
my brother and i spent our childhood.
we don't have many photos of us when
we were little so this serves as a
Sweet Memory for me :)

the photo is held by a heart brad which flips to
show off hidden journalling
Brand New!
just launched today, Ed's Sketch challenge blog which will be maintained by Team Co~ordinator Stephanie :) sketches are freehand so not many straight lines ;) it's just for fun and some Inspiration for us to share.
