"A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend" (author unknown). Ah, so true, so true. Not long ago, Andrea emailed me some pictures she had taken of herself -- arm extended self-portrait snapshots. And as you know "if you give your mom a picture ~ it's going to be scrapbooked" (see January's article If You Give A Mouse A Cookie).
It wasn't until I saw these recent snapshots that I saw the resemblance --- she looks like me! I always saw the Mansfield features. Her thick, dark hair, brown eyes and that beautiful smile that captures your heart. But, there it was in black and white: a mini ME. But, she is just a tiny reflection of me. She is her own woman. A woman who is refreshing, kind and full of magic.
sidebar: the layout pages I did are directly scraplifted from Cathy Zielske's book, Clean & Simple Scrapbooking, a very favorite scrapbook artist of mine. Thanks, Cathy, I needed a lift.
