But we still LOVE her....

Do any of you have one of these? My beautiful 12 year old daughter WILL NOT tolerate having her picture taken anymore. Future generations are going to be looking through our scrapbooks and think we either disowned her or she became disfigured and we stopped photographing her!

Journaling reads:
It may be hard to believe, but my little budding photographer has become extremely camera shy. I blame it on the self-consciousness of puberty, but that pitiful picture on the left is what the majority of our current pictures of Elizabeth look like. They are usually blurry because I have to move fast to avoid her instinctive action to block her face with her hand. Only rarely does she consent to sit still for a photo and that is usually after making some sort of threat. So if you notice a lack of photos of Elizabeth during this season of our scrapbooks, you will know that she didn’t suddenly fall out of our good graces, but instead was hiding behind her hand every time the camera wasn’t in it.

I did this using one of Doris Castle's Beach quickpages which really goes to show that they are pretty versatile since there is really nothing "beachy" about this LO. "Camera" was done with her soft blue alpha and "shy" was done with her Original Divas' alpha.

How sweet! I didn't realize it was "you". Yes, I am oblivious sometimes LOL. I love your lo's and thanks for your sweet comments today :)

Hopefully she'll like her photo taken again soon! Great lo!
