ACDC -Back In Black

Good Monday morning everyone, I have a fun layout to share with you today. We were invited to go to a Halloween themed Buck N' Doe back in October. My husband being the fun guy that he is wanted to dress up and he knew exactly who he wanted to dress up as....his most favourite band member ever!!!


If anyone out there knows my husband at all, they would be able to guess who without even seeing him. Of course,- Angus Young of ACDC. Gerry got so many wonderful compliments about his costume. Everything was purchased at a thrift store except for the wig...which I had to cut to be the appropriate style and length....lol

My title is actually from a box that housed a cup that I gave Gerry a couple of years ago for Christmas. I knew that it would come in handy. Great upcycling!!!

I was inspired by the Make It Mondat sketch No. 99 from The Memory Nest


My husband was thrilled on Saturday when I returned home from a crop and surprised him with this layout. About an hour latter he read on line that ACDC lost one of their band member, - Malcom Young. Gerry was very sad! I am glad that we were able to see them live in concert a few years back. It was  wonderful experience to share together.
