Old Bag's bag

My dear friend Muriel turned 40 today and to help her celebrate I created an Old Lady's party bag. The idea was in the latest copy of Sommerset Holidays and Celebrations by an artist called Lisa Bebi http://lisabebi.blogspot.com/search/label/old%20lady%20party%20package I rather liked the way Lisa used Lady's instead of Ladies and decided to keep it that way!
A straw with an old pic of Muriel, black and white of course
A card featuring a very cross looking self, my bro and my cousins, remember the days when your mum made the party hats out of old Weetbix boxes and crepe paper...
A party whistle where I finally got to use one of my Bingo numbers!
Check out Post 2 for the crowning glory!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this too! You know how to make crepe paper work on anything!

You were very cute as a child- even looking a little cross (probably just squinting in the sun).
