Yay, it's a Blog Hop!

Thanks so much for joining us! We are very excited show you some scrappy projects from the ‘past’ and hope that you gain lots of inspiration and continue to hop with us!!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Scrap~tures and start the Hop.

You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our team....... or the chance to win a Rak :-)

Here is my "Retro Layout". Created quite some time ago when I first started scrapping, using some really old photos of myself and some memories about growing up in the 80's!

Journaling Reads: It was a time when every little girl owned a Cabbage Patch Doll (or two, even three)! Sesame "Park" was just a "Street" and we watched Polka Dot "Door" not Polka Dot "Shorts". It was cool to wear neon, and leggings under your skirt. Big hair with lots of hairspray was a must, and so were leg-warmers. We loved Madonna (even though we didn't know what a "Virgin" was), and we owned every one of her cassettes. We thought New Kids on the Block would be around forever, and that Def Leppard was heavy metal music. We cried when Rudy's goldfish died, and we all knew ALF's real name. We wore banana clips in our hair, and we all had banana seats on our bikes. We would practice our Care Bear Stare while we thought we how "truly outrageous" we were, like Jem and the Holograms. We slept on Straberry Shortcake bed sheets, and left our Lite Brite on at night. We would spend our money on Popeye Candy Cigarettes, Pop Rocks and edible Wax Lips. Mr. Dressup always had the coolest stuff in his Tickle Trunk, and we all wanted to be Mr. Rogers Neighbour. There was only one Nintendo video game system and we still went to the arcades. The Goonies was considered a Horror Movie, and when we grew up we were all going to be ghostbusters, and E.T. always found his way home.

This blog hop will run from today, April15th – April 17th. We will be drawing for winner on April 18th.

Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is: Just 'T' (a blog by Sammysgirl)
