Dirty Scraps (new challenge blog)

So Pinky has started a new challenge blog - Dirty Scraps. Of course it's a scrappy challenge blog, but it's also about not just scrapping the good side of life.

We all have it - the crap that happens on a daily basis or has happened before in our lives.


Anyway, I decided to do the first challenge. Scrapping a peeve and what you learned from it. When I first started thinking I was like, well... if I learned anything they wouldn't really be a peeve anymore. However, I decided to scrap about myself. I am my own worst enemy in most cases, I have to remind myself that I am a good person and I deserve to be happy and content with life. I have to make myself be happy with me.

I decided to journal with a black pen along black because I want it to be difficult for me to go back and read later. Maybe, if I have to put extra effort into reading it when I look at it, I'll remember what it says!

I have this peeve too, and you would think since I am always growing it would go away but it doesn't! WTF? LOL

Love the bits and pieces look. I would have NEVER thought about using black pen on black. Your deliberate reason for doing so truly makes this a keeper. Thanks for sharing the idea.

Very original idea to use the black pen on black! I have this issue as well...being your own worst enemy. It does suck! Love the layout!!!!

I never thought about the black on black but it makes you really read and process your thoughts as you read. Wow! We really need to believe in ourselves but man, it's so hard! love it!!
