Get Picky!!! {My wish for You - Peace, Love & Beautiful Shoes}

Hi everyone,  I need to get this layout posted here PRONTO so that I don't miss the deadline for the Get Picky challenge over here.  I am coming back though, as & when, to do another post with a "how to" as I photographed the page "being built", etc, etc...and lots of yummy close-ups!  But for now, let me off will ya, 'cos to be in it to win it I have to link up NOW :)







I have A LOT to say about this layout so I am coming back, believe me!  To understand how I came up with it you need to see the inspiration photograph here




How could I possibly not enter?!  With my history in fashion design it was a no-brainer that of course I would rise to the challenge!  BUT I really thought I had missed the deadline...Unfortunately (well fortunately in other respects) you all know that I have had a lot going on this month, what with my surgery & then getting on to 4 design teams in a month (believe me when I applied for them all I didn't expect to get them ALL!!!) so my heart was pretty heavy at the thought of missing out...

Then I thought, y'know, that picture is too good not to download & save to my desktop inspiration file, so I clicked in there to do just that & guess what???  Well, as you can see...I had a late night last night...and the reason I'm so late to get it up here to photograph?  Well, I got the kids all off to school, came home & did the "urgent stuff" then lay down on my bed with a tub of hummus & some pita chips and....well, let's just say I took a liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitle nap!!!

Woke up with a bit of a fright & kiddies to collect from all over the place, did all that & here we are!!! - 

ENJOY!!!

Hummus & pita chips are my FAVOURITE. Crazy how we have so much in common but I suppose not surprising since we get along so well!
LOVE the LO and what crazy fantastic inspiration!
