Dirty Scraps Challenge #8 - Compassion

The new Challenge is now up at Dirty Scraps and it's all about Compassion! You are being asked to create a LO around how compassion has affected your life. Here are the details:

Challenge #8 COMPASSION:
There is definitely a lack of compassion in this world that is full of judgment. So this challenge is all about compassion, maybe it will give someone else perspective on having compassion and less judgment, maybe it will make you think twice next time? So scrap a page about yourself, and something you "wish" people would stop judging you about and have compassion for you.
Not feel sorry, not pity you, but have some compassion because they don't know the whole story. Let's spread the love and get some insight on life :)
Now go get dirty!

Kayla is a little girl with a big heart. At 10.5 years old she is the size of an average 6 year old. Kids are always poking fun at her because of her size. It breaks her heart because she doesn't understand. I only wish kids would open their eyes and realize that words do hurt. They hurt good people with big hearts.

I chose to do this LO based on how a lack of compassion from her peers has affected my oldest daughter Kayla. But instead of her looking at it from a negative aspect, I mean sure it hurts her feelings, she looks at it from an example of how not to be. She is a very loving girl and has more compassion in her heart then most people I know. I feel good knowing that I am doing something right in raising my kids!

For this LO I used the March kit from Paper Poppy Kit Co. If you haven't checked out their kits yet then you definitely should. They are loaded with beautiful goodness and a major plus: they are a month to month, so no subscriptions!
