Mother and Daughter

I think it's safe to say that I HATE being in front of the camera!  I HATE having my picture taken!  I'd much rather be the one behind the camera than in front of it.
Having said that, my darling husband has on occasion, insisted on taking the camera from me to take some pics of my beloved daughter and I.
So when ScrapAfrica presented their latest challenge, I decided to dig through the shots I had of Isabella and I; and I came up with these.
I have combined the challenge that ScrapAfrica is hosting (to use a patchwork effect) with this lovely colour scheme from ScrapFriends.
These pictures of Isabella and I were taken a year ago.  Here is what I rustled up this morning.
I must say that this LO is unlike me - in that I did not make use of any flowers or additional embellishments.  I felt that the "busy-ness" of the patchwork was more than enough for this page, and adding anymore would only detract from the prettiness of the patchwork.
So, I just finished the edges of the pages off with some washi.
My chippie title has been treated with white UTEE - again, I did not want to cover the title completely.  I rather like this more 'messy' look.
I am happy with this page; I really am.
Thanks for stopping by!
