OLD FAVOURITES LAYOUT - and happy b'day!

Well .... here it is girls, my first LO for Old Favourites Design Team.... and boy did I have fun!!
I really love the way this LO turned out - kind of funky grunge I think I'll call it!!
It actually came together quite quickly as EVERYTHING I needed was in the vintage paper pack from the Old Favourites shop .. as well as a few little extras and the title and plenty left over for other LO's.
I needed alot of help with the title, but thanks to Ebony... she came up with this idea that I loved!! Thanks to the other girls to for their advice too. Here is a close up of a VERY funky vintage soda label, the bingo card and some twine.
and a little sneek for the next Old Favourites layout ... this is a girly one .... and yes peeps, I have used purple .... I know I said never .... but it kind of looks pretty on this LO and Sam sent it to me so I kind of had to use it ... its pretty ... you will see soon enough... and it went perfect with the aqua.... ok enough excuses, I am still avoiding purple though....

And I had better put in a very Happy Birthday to my gorgeous HUBBY - hope you have a great day and I love you heeeeeps.
And so now I am off to the hairdressers, my little princess threw an absolute banana this morning because she couldn't find the right accessories to wear to take her brothers to school and so missed out on walking to school to drop them off - so I put her to bed for being silly .... so she decided to cut her hair!! Her beautiful curls, right from the front, so now she needs a fringe. Apparently it just fell off - even though there was hair on her bed and scissors in her makeup case - well this must happen....... Hmmm, not happy!!
Ironically - I nearly finished a LO last night about her gorgeous hair...... at least now I have an embellishment for the LO!!!!
