Rose Challenge!!!!!

Good Sunday Morning!
I actually posted yesterday and today.... and it's the weekend! That doesn't happen very often! It's time for the Rose challenge! Betty- Rose set the challenge this month. She would like us to use a picture of ourselves as a child on a card. I don't have a single picture of myself as a child! I am one of ten kids and my folks just didn't take pictures... I don't even have school pictures to share! I do have a couple of group pictures from family gatherings when we were older. So I cheated a little on this one... I needed a card for my daughter to let her know how much I love her and how proud I am of her. So my picture is my daughter... we look a lot alike if that counts LOL! The only difference is she is 23yrs younger and way prettier! She loves bright colors and flowers so this should work perfectly! The border was done with the picture editing program I use! I used more of the lovely flowers dp with melon mambo and old olive. The sentiment was computer generated! Be sure to bounce over and check out the rest of the Rose Bouquet to see what they have come up with! You can find their links on my side bar! Have yourself a great day!

How sad that you have no childhood photos, but I guess your parents had more important things to do and to buy, having ten children. This is a great picture of your daughter on the card. It worked out for you, nice job!
