Hello again! Sorry for my absence the last couple of days, but my kids are finally back in school and life is slowly returning to a normal routine. The snow is still around, but fortunately we did not lose power during the icy weather and high winds earlier this week so I am feeling very blessed!
Having said that, welcome to another Fabulous Friday - we're featuring the "With All my Heart" stamp set from the Occasions mini catalog this week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog. I decided to use this set in a non-Valentine's Day sort of way and chose some fun bright colors (bermuda bay and pink passion). These colors screamed "the 80's!" to me so I decided to create a scrapbook page that I could use to capture some of my favorite memories from this super-fun decade of my life. What do you think? Does this page make you want to pull out your Calvin Klein skin-tight jeans, tease your hair and sing an old Flock of Seagulls song?! I used to make fun of my parents for always reminiscing about the 50's and 60's and now I'm doing it to my kids with the 80's... I think they know more songs from the 80's than this decade! I must say that my high school and college years were a lot of fun and I'm glad it was during this totally awesome time!! I'm going to have fun putting this page together with photos and journaling.
What are some of your favorite 80's memories? Please leave me a comment through Sunday night and I'll randomly choose a winner to send some blog candy to... I can't wait to see what you share!!
Here are some close-ups of the embellishments on the page... I stamped "THE" from the stamp "Hi There" from Fundamental Phrases and cut it out because it was the largest "the" I could find in my stamp collection. I then popped it on the heart since there wasn't enough room to cut this word out with my Big Shot. I think it works...
