Abusive Awareness Blog Hop

11:12 PM


Welcome to the Abusive Relationship Awareness Blog Hop. While this may not be your typical blog hop theme, we decided to put together this hop in order to shed light on a topic that often goes unspoken about, when the truth is many of us have either been in an abusive relationship or know of someone who has. We're here not to celebrate abusive relationships, but to bring hope to those who have been firsthand or secondhand victims and to provide awareness to help put an end to this growing problem. 


All of our projects showcased in this hop have something to do with hope, love, and encouragement. The color for domestic violence is purple, and as you'll see purple was used on many of our projects.





For my project, I created..wall plaque using Prima Fairy Belle collection papers.  She is what gives me strength to be a better stronger person each and everyday!!

Such a beautiful plaque and hop. I love the flowers you used. This hop is near and dear to me. I lost a cousin to an Abusive Relationship. She left behind my now 10 year old cousin.

Just wanted to let you know it was hard to leave a comment on your post. I could'nt use google chrome to do anything; so I went to use internet explore. Some how I was able to use tthe up, down and tab key to see the blogger word verification to leave a comment.But you have to hit publish first before you can move up and down. You may want to turn it off. This could be one of the reason you may not be getting many comment on your blog. I thought I would share for the other bloggers.

TFS AJ~
