Bra Shopping...With your Daughter...

is STRESSFUL!!! Not that it is her first bra or anything, but jeesh - the styles - oh my - a little risque' for a tween!! I went to the stores her friends go to and the other Mom's said they go to also, but STILL!! Maybe I am just turning into a bore - not that I wear gramma panties and Platex Cross-Your-Heart bras (AS IF I'd even fill those out!!), but hmmmm... Let's just say it was an experience I will not forget. My baby is getting TOO OLD, TOO FAST!!

As far as my weekend update...I spent Friday night and ALL DAY Saturday having scrappy fun with mi chicas!! Didn't get tons accomplished, but had lots of fun chatting it up, eating Cricket's scrumptious cookies and brownies (ahem... hitting the gym here soon as I finish posting this!!), and restraining myself from shopping too much (darn @!!@@###@@@ BUDGET!!).

So here are a few LO's I finished. Will follow soon with the ones I am still finishing up. It's been oh so long since I have done any BOY LO's and about high time I have scrapped some of my little man Zach!! I stepped away from my norm a little - no flowers, no lace, no distressing, but still had oodles of fun with the bright colors and of course my fav. Kraft cardstock. When I found out Craft Fancy sells Bazzill Kraft paper in both 12 x 12 and 8 1/2 X 11 - I totally did my HAPPY DANCE and stocked UP!! OH JOY!!

Cute fun boy layouts! And I can only imagine what the fashion industry wants our tweens to wear for underwear! I shudder to think of it!

great layouts...and I don't even want to think about "fancy bra" shopping. Luckily, my oldest is a runner/soccer player, so all of her bras are sports bras. No need or desire for the other kind...whew!

Love the OA on the boy layouts - very fun! My DD is only 1, but I'm definitely NOT looking forward to that stage!

Your layouts are awesome! I love the fun and the bright colors. The photos are wonderful, too!

Sorry you had a stressful time shopping with your daughter. i can just imagine what you had to go through. The tweens and teens here love Victoria Secret. Let's say some make my ever so straight hair curl in ringlets.
