new challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles

This month’s challenge is to scrap about how it is more blessed to give than to receive.

Have you even given someone something or done something for someone with absolutely no strings attached, expecting nothing in return? How did that make you feel? Have you ever been overjoyed after giving something that made someone truly happy? Have you been the recipient of a gift from a child, so eager to bring you pleasure with something they made for you? Has someone ever done something for you that you could never pay them back for? In this world of always striving for more we can easily forget the blessing of giving to others. 
So put your thinking cap on...and create a project about a gift you received that really touched your heart or a sacrificial gift you gave. Perhaps you could even make a gift to give (specifically for this challenge). wouldn't have to be a physical gift, do you have photos of when you donated your time to help out?
The scrap twist is to include some gems on your project.
This month's sponsor is ScrapChicKits and here is what the owner Sue has to say about it:

I got started into scrapbooking from Bernadine Segui who is an American fluent in French who has a website in French and does amazing design work. Here is her link  for any of you who speak French. I wanted to bring some of her products together into kits for the English speaking and that's how Scrapchickits got started.   I love family history and scrapbooking can make our history so bright and creative. My store features quality products from Websters, Crate Paper, Pink Paisley and more  at a very reasonable price.  My shop is on Etsy so it is really easy to find and to order. ScrapChicKits. Happy Scrapbooking!"

And now for the prize that Sue has so generously donated:

Dolls, Butterflies and Flower Scrapbooking kit 8

This kit is especially designed for your little girl who loves dolls, dress up and flowers. It is luscious pink and turquoise. Look what you get inside: 3 Crate Paper Cottage Collection papers, 1 Crate Paper Paper Doll Collection paper, 4 Crate Paper Pink Plum Collection papers, Crate Paper Chipboard Paper Doll Accents, Crate Paper Paper Doll Glazed Brads, 18 inches turquoise ribbon, My Minds Eye Alphabet.

One winner will be chosen randomly.

I love this! What a blessing that must have been! I have yet to go on a mission trip but my son has and learned so much from it! I love the colors and the little houses!

I have this MLS collection and never knew what to do with it. It works so well for a mission trip to Mexico! Very nice layout!
