I love this THEME of DAUGHTER!  My daughter is the most amazing character in the Universe (according to her Mommy).  

She is strong, motivated, self confident, gentle, thoughtful, stubborn, aggressive in her career as Director of Marketing and Sales for a downtown Toronto Film Editing Company, a diva in the best sense of the word, brilliant, tenacious, tough on me (teaches me everyday) generous (did I say generous?) and my equal.  

She too is a Leo and my provider of clothes! 

When Ayla was a wee tot she had a "Puffalump" a sacred, carry around, suck on, drag in the mud, never let out of her site.  His/Her name was "Ellie."

Well Mommy lost Ellie.  Devastating.  Awful.  Trauma.  PTSD of the child kind.

To this day, at nearly 27 it can still be a conversation of "what the hell did mommy do with her Puffy?"

When I saw Ali Peeps "HUFFALUMP" it was a no brainer.  YES YES YES!  THIS IS AYLA!!!!  I had asked Ayla to pick the digi, since it would be about her, but she was on her way to Mexico so asked me to.  PERFECT.

So here we have it...My Angel, My Goddess, My Love, My Daughter, My Best Friend.
