Yikes - But I'm a Control Freak!

So how can I possibly join in with today's LOAD...
Myth or reality: scrapbooking means you are in charge always
Not being in control of my own scrapbooking is like not being in charge of my own bodily functions!
Here's where my daughter comes in, 
I gave her a selection of 13 B&W photos to choose from (considering I didn't know her colour combo choice I thought B&W options would be better)
I also gave her a choice of the two sketches that are sitting in my "challenges" picture file and two mood boards that are also sitting in that same file.
Her choices...

My layout qualifies for two challenges...
Life Paper Scrapbook February Sketch Challenge
Challenge #3 over at Challenge YOUrself 
Create a layout about someone you love using this color combo
and include a photograph of yourself.

I know I've used this photo before but isn't it just too cute not to?
 My journalling...
If I could have more time with you
I would tell you that I love you,
listen carefully to the stories
you had to tell,
spend more time with you
laugh with you.
Most of all
if I could have more time with you
I would cherish every
single minute I spend with you
because today you’re not here
and I’m too late to hear
your stories.
I love this photo of me and you,
I think our love for
each other shows,
I only wish I’d had the chance
 to tell you

Before I go today,
I would also like to welcome "gma" as my newest follower
I get sooooo excited when that ticker goes up :)
