~How about a challenge while we wait for the NEW DT to be announced!~

Let's get right to it while
we anxiously await the new DT!

Not entirely sure of everything on this blog yet
BUT here is the deal...
challenges will be on the 10th
and the 25th every month!


This blog is to challenge YOURSELF to get playing and dirty.
Not sure about prizes yet, for now we will just try to
inspire you to look deep inside and play with paper!

Dirty Challenge #1

We all have negative experiences in our life
from the VERY bad to the regular ups and downs so I challenge you to scrap a PEEVE, annoyance or a downright angry moment that's the dirty part...
but here is the twist...
We are not just a bitching session here, this blog is to inspire you to look inside and grow... on the same page I want you to find something positive in that aggravation and put some perspective on it.

Here is my example...
My Peeve: I really get peeved with people who try to cause you drama
and bring you down with a negative attitude and nasty comments...
always finding something wrong with you and pointing it out,
even if it is not true.

My Positive: I have learned which friends are true friends and
to let the negative people and their ways not get to me as much
and let them go. I am not so lonely I have to hang on to every person
who hates on me...I can let them go.
5 years ago I would have been in bed devastated...it's big progress for me :)


As always, we support your scrapping no matter what it is, so
if you don't feel strong enough yet to journal it publicly that's OK! :)
Just being open to it makes your life better.

I would LOVE to see your pages
For this challenge, I will choose ONE entry and
you will be the GUEST Designer on Dirty Scraps! :)
This challenge will go through the 24th!

Not sure about how the prizes will work BUT to kick it off
I have a GREAT FULL set of Stamps as a prize to one
Dirty Scrapper!

Now go get DIRTY!!

Jenn said...

I'm so excited about this! I have my journaling done but I have to sit down and do the layout. HOw funny it's something I confront almost daily but to actually put it on paper is quite the challenge!!

Niki_Ray said...

Mandee said...

No rules! Scrap the dirt! Oh, I'm in!!! BTW, Luv your layout!!!

Kelly C said...

I am dying to do this one... hopefully later tonight. It's been hard to think of what I actually want to do it on - so many ideas.

Sandi said...

ok, this is soooo hard. Not only is it difficult to just "put it out there" but what makes it even more difficult for me is that I am totally new to this blogging thing and I just started my blog. Argh, it is so amateurish!! I am totally out of my element with the whole posting and adding pictures and [eye rolling] it took me forever to even figure it out! LOL.
Suggestions are helpful, I am begging, even....

MamaBirdy said...

Thanks for this challenge. It was hard, but I've been wanting to do it for a while. I made it simple, no title or anything. I just wanted to tell the story I guess.

Pinky said...

Hey Mama birdy, I tried to comment on your blog but it won't let me! :)
Great job on the LO OMG I think I would have been upset too!

Thanks for the challenge!

My peeve: I'm not assertive, and people tend to step on you and push you around when you let them like I have.

My positive: I have indeed learned something about how, how they work and what their motives are.
