I've never really felt like I NEEDED to do challenges from blogs before, well I have done a few, but Pinky (one of my fav fiskateers) just started the coolest challenge blog called Dirty Scraps. It's about scrapping the "hard" stuff. As part of my "Learn" in 2010 I felt this was a perfect place to roll up my sleeves.
I finished my first LO yesterday afternoon and so I need to take a better pic (light in the house is terrible at 5am LOL). But here's the first pic and I'll take more when it's daylight so you can see it better.
The first challenge was to scrap a peeve or downright angry moment. It's also my first LO with no photo.
Journalling reads: 2009 So much happened that was bad-with family. My pet peeve is when adults don't want to work through their problems. -One of my pet peeves anyway. I truly believe that you grow and learn from others by talking. Talk out differences in opinion or ways of doing things. And talk about things as soon as possible. If arguments are not settled and hurts are allowed to swell and fester- there are no winners. Evveryone loses, no one gets to feel better. There are differences that can go by the wayside and be left and you can just forget what happened and start over-but every party involved has to be ready and able to do this. If just one person feels like they need an answer, and explanation or just to be heard, then they do. There is never a winner when someone is hurt. Ultimatums are a terrible thing and refusing to talk doesn't release you fro the fact that you hurt people. My pet peeve is conditional love.
The paper and most of the embellishments came from one of my old Bad Girls kits I had laying around. Supply list: Paper from Prima's "Flirty Little Secret" Shimmer, Creative Imaginations : Double Vision, Prima Say it in Swirls, Twill Tape and lace are from Crate Paper: Blue Hill The letters are Thickers: Lullaby that I have painted with Making Memories Acrylic Paint and the "bad card" was also from the kit and came from an Etsy shop...sorry not sure which one (wasn't listed at Bad Girls either, I checked).
