SwirlyHues Entry-Pretty,Pretty Please

This is my entry for the SwirlyHues Challenge over at Swirlydoos.
This is my daughter, Naomi, in a reflective moment at around age 4. 
She is currently in middle school and being too hard on herself. 
Being biracial in a mostly cacausian town, she feels like "one of the few chips in the cookie". 
I struggled with, and unfortunately, continue to struggle with my own self-esteem issues.
 More than anything, I do not want to pass that on.
The clean version of this song by Pink is so is powerful if you have never seen it.



The tutorial I chose was the water distressing technique-turned out kinda cool.
 I wanted something that wasn't, well, perfect-get it?
Thanks for stopping by!
