This is my submission to the My Favorite Things Guest Design Spot for September. Here is the sketch:
I paired this sketch with my new A La Mode 80's girl and some Basic Grey Clippings and this is what I came up with:
I think I might have been the only one at the release party that didn't know what, "word" meant, lol. And I was so totally an 80's girl. Dunno. I am hard of hearing, so maybe that one escaped me, lol. I love this daisy die-namic and will use it at any possible time I can. I like that the flowers are flatter and you can send them in the mail easily and they make such a beautiful flower ever time. I also used my retro square border, again, lol. I cannot get enough of this one, I love it! I also used my tabs quartet die-namic again. These are the perfect sized little tabs for just a word or two.
I remember the 80's well. I had a boom box and was playing my cassette tapes in style. I had upgraded from my 8-track and felt very modern. lol. 30 years later, here I am with my I-pod and I can watch movies on it to boot! Wow. Technology has really come a long way. I so would have been texting and on the phone all the time back then too if I could have, lol. I had a few pairs of leg warmers and I wore them over my Jordache Jeans that I had to lay on the bed to get into and at times required assistance to get up, before I could go to school. Is it no wonder I refuse to wear tight things now? lol. My poor innards didn't like that very much.
