Crafterminds Trends Challenge - Throwdown!

When I read this challenge posted over at Scrapchallenge.com I knew I had to create a layout immediately!  So, here goes - the most fun layout I've ever made....(speaking as a mini-album, altered-item creator). http://scrapchallenge.com/hilarious-crafterminds-trends-challenge/

The objective of this challenge is to include in one layout/project as many current trends as possible and to poke a little fun at the same time.  Here are the trends I incorporated:
1) Pennant banners
2) Chevron pattern
3) Mustard/Gray color combo
4) Baker's Twine
5) Sheet Music
6) Any reference to "keep calm and carry on"
7) Geometric patterns
8) Using a bird
9) Quatrefoil designs
10) Bunting
11) Canvas
12) Hat Pins
13) Sewing
14) Mist Spray with mask
15) Doilies
16) Animal prints

Products used:  PP - My Mind's Eye, My Little Shoebox, Robin's Nest; Cardstock Stickers - My Little Shoebox (music/birds); Doilies, Cork Banners, Canvas, Twine - Punky Sprouts; Chevron pattern mask - Crafter's Workshop; Mist Spray in Gray by Lindy's Stamp Gang; Bunting rosette - Girls' Paperie; Charcoal Chalk ink - Colorbox.
