DCM weekly dare - Trio of Welsh Barbers ?????

To be able to understand the title of this weeks dare it's most important to be WELSH!!!!!
but for a wonderful discription of what her dare mean pop on over to
and Lythan will tell you what you need to do.... I'm an Aussie what do I know!!!
all jokes aside then...
this is my card Now a few weeks ago,
I had the most delightful package arrive from SAM
it was full of the most wonderful goodies.. I'm sooooo spoilt..
and these cutie-pie mini die cut coasters were in there, so I've use 3 of them (that leaves me enough to make a cute little mini album..big smiles) So thankyou Sam, you helped me heaps with this weeks dare!!! ;O)
Now the journaling..
Why was he born so beautiful, Why was he born at all, because he had no say in it, No say in it at all.... Happy Birthday.. You Beautiful Thing!
Every single Birthday celebration in my family, as soon as you finish singing the 'happy birthday' song... my dad sings this... Oh I used to be soooooo embarrassed as a kid, LOL!
now when I hear the 'happy birthday' song, I hear my dad sing this in my head!
bit's used are - GinX mini coasters from SAM :O)
Cardstock, some more of my tortured old book, some string, a jewellery clip, jumpring, and a vintage carnival token that says "for amusement only" heeeheeee...
So have you dared to DARE...Come on I dare you!!!
