One little word....

I have to admit… after all the deadlines I had last week I kind of lost my mojo..
I wanted to do some scrapping just for me for a couple of days but just hadn’t any inspiration.
Yesterday morning I was browsing the internet and there it was! While visiting the OLW blog I suddenly felt like scrapping the OLW word for this week... “believe”. With the beautiful pictures of my DD and the word “believe” in mind I knew what I was gonna do!
Since it was Sunday and I didn’t want to sit alone in my scrap room while my family was downstairs I just brought everything I thought I needed down and sat on the living room floor. It was such a relaxed, nice Sunday afternoon and this is the result:




Journaling is on the tag behind the picture and says:
Why don’t you believe me?
Normally you’re such a self-confident girl.
You´re not afraid to give your opinion or to speak up for yourself.
You know exactly what you want and how to get it. You stand for what you say and,
if you have to, you fight for your rights.
But when it comes to your looks you´re so insecure! You look in the mirror a dozen
times an hour and this is what I hear:
“Sigh… my hair looks awful!”
“Blehhh, my nose is way to big!”
“Gosh, look at my eye brows… they’re horrible!”
And I tell you time and time again that you’re gorgeous!
But you’re convinced that I’m prejudiced because I’m your mom…
I guess it’s just natural to feel that way when you’re 13 years old.
But sweet daughter of mine…
you really can believe me when I tell you that you’re beautiful!

Hoi Anne, Ik woon ook in winsum en zie je hier wel eens lopen/fietsen. Dus ik ken je van uiterlijk niet alleen maar van de foto's... Je bent echt een mooie meid om te zien hoor! En dit meen ik dus ook ECHT! Ik heb er ook een vreselijke hekel aan om mezelf terug te zien op foto of film (wis mezelf soms van de camera). Maar een ander kijkt er toch anders naar. hopelijk wil je moeder je dit laten lezen. En ehhh. moeder... wat weer een prachtige LO en nieuwe banner. Weer een om trots op te zijn! Groetjes Anette

Nog voor ik de journaling las zat ik nog te denken, wat een mooie meid is het toch. Prachtige LO ook, maar de foto doet het.
