Challenge #16: Your LOVE hurts Me
It's funny how people hurt the ones they love the most.
Sometimes is it so toxic you have to cut them off, sometimes you
can handle it but it's a daily struggle, sometimes you just avoid it
altogether. This challenge is all about those who love to hurt you
or just blindly hurt you while saying, "I love you".
No it might not be intentional, but it still hurts.
Maybe its the sister who constantly says how horrible your
children are, or the friend who always criticizes your weight.
Or the parent who only sees their child who makes mistakes
and does not acknowledge your accomplishments.
Its ok to see the pain, and its ok to still love them.
It's therapeutic to be aware!!
Now GO get Dirty!!
Here is my layout for this challenge....
**This Boy is Loved**
We also have an AWESOME sponsor
for this Challenge...
$20 Gift Certificate to their Online Store!!!
So DO GET DIRTY!!!

The Newest Challenge is up over at DirtyScraps!!!! And Team RAW
did a fantastic job with this one....
"The Games We Play"
Games are for Children right?
I don't think so!! From the playground to kindergarten to High School
and beyond....life's little games.
It's so easy to get caught up in the emotional games,
material games and power games as an adult.
This challenge is all about recognizing those games.
Maybe you have a relationship that you are always trying
to one up eachother? Or you have a friend that is always trying
to drag you into their drama. Whether we like to admit it or not,
everyday we face some sort of game!!
So go scrap it and go get dirty!!!!
Have a wonderful week my friends!!!
