Crafty Secrets Design Team Challenge "Retro Inspiration"

This month's design team challenge theme at Crafty Secrets is Retro look. What could be more retro than this '64 1/2 Mustang that was owned by my dad. It was the second one on the road in Washington! My dad was cool that way.....

This layout was created digitally using the Creating with Vintage Patterns CD
. I especially love the red and turquoise papers. Our car was a steel blue-gray so I sampled the color of the car and used the free-font "A Hard Day's Night" for the writing.

By the way, that is retro me in the photograph! I really loved this car and the cars that followed, including a Pontiac Firebird and a Chevy Malibu.
