Back to the 80’s Birthday Hop

17 Dec

I am so glad you have joined us today in honor of Emily whose birthday it is!

What a fun idea to have a blog hop and have all of us join in for some fun memories and flashbacks!

NOT HOT FLASHES!! (Emily is too young for that anyhow!)

Here is the needed info,

You should have arrived from : EMMA’s Blog.

If you arrived here first, here is the BLOG HOP order, so start at the top with EMILY.(The Birthday Girl)

Julie Ranae
******YOU ARE HERE****** Jeannie

Your next stop is Cristine..

Real quick…80’s, what do you think of?  I think of big earrings, Contempo Casual, Benneton, The Limited, Big Sweater, Short skirts and High School Class of 1987!

Oh how I loved..



and….  PAUL YOUNG!!

Ahh…yep, those were the days!!

So that is my little trip down memory lane..

On to my project!

Here is a little card I made…remember PAC-MAN???  Yep, I played enough of this in my life.

Love the colors, I found this palette on Ingenious Inkling’s blog.

 My other card here is a tiny tribute to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

I loved that MOVIE!!  What were your favorites?

Say Anything?  Better Off Dead? Pretty in Pink? The Outsiders?

Here they are one last time.

I have just been on the hop and so many of you have mentioned Bon Jovi, I have to throw these in too!

Oh and here is Jon & I, on a photo shoot!

Now here is my PRIZE for this blog hop!  It is an 80’s inspired embellishment kit.

Handmade flowers and pins…bright ribbons…

…bright buttons…brads…Fun stuff!!

So to qualify for this prize, you need to make sure you have visited all blogs and leave some love..

Leave me a comment and let me know what band was your TOTAL 80’s FAV!!

I hope you are enjoying this hop!

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!!
