Altered Box - I see you {Clarissa}







I am always amused by the antics of my pre-pubescent 10 year old Clarissa. She thinks I don't love her when she throws her tantrums and bad behaviour antics. I just turn away as I really don't want to encourage her to use bad behaviour for attention.
This picture sets the right mood for this title - I see you. It was snapped candidly in Dome when she was talking to Jessy's hubby - Eric. Thanks to Jessy's vigilance - she snapped this picture resulting in a slightly blurred but beautiful photograph of her. When making this layout - all I wanted to say to my dear daughter - of course I see you. Although I keep quiet - I still see you - know what you are doing. You are my only daughter - how can I possibly miss seeing you?

Mich I love your altered box. So many gorgeous details. And I can so relate. My three yo old throws tantrums and I handle it the same way.
