Peace love & juicy couture!

There was once a time when none of the kids cared much about what they were wearing, as long as it was comfy. They didn't care much about brands or colors, and had no idea that clothes are more than protection - that they are a part of your image (don't tell me it's not - I bet there are clothes you NEVER would were, as they are so NOT YOU). But that time came to and end - I'm not sure excactly when - and it hit DS11 first.



For him it's not just about staying warm and dry any more - it's also a lot about how he LOOKS! And as a parent I struggle and try to figure out the balance: I refuse to spend my whole salary on stuff that makes my kids, in their opininion, COOL ("Listen carefully, my son. It's not what you OWN that makes you YOU, it's who you ARE" blah blah blah), but I don't deny that buying cool stuff, once in a while, even for me, is a happy feeling. Can you relate?

I found the title over at Get Picky's March Inspiration Challenge #6. I was struck to all the structure, the colors (especially the purple) and the feeling of "the more the merrier".




But I don't have any purple pps or stash (I'm not kidding, it's true), I stink at working with layers and structure and there is no way I can force my self to overload a layout . But the title kicked started me to scrap about DS11 and his new passion for fashion :-)


Thank you Nikki and Tanya for once again getting me going with your awesome challenges! And thank you DT for providing us with fabolous inspiration!
