 How utterly Fantastic is that?.. 
So simple, yet with a little bit imagination it can end up being so fab..

Here are some close ups and all of the details to the making of this layout:

My mom at the young age of 63 is such a fashion Diva..
She has recently lost like 30 lbs and ever since, she has fallen in love with clothes and has a fetish with handbags and coats.. She really has a flair for looking good!!
