Another Brick in the Wall meets MindCraft

Hello Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a new Challenge over at the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  This week is 80's Theme.  I googled 80's and the Music Billboard for the top ten 1980 came up with "Another Brick in the Wall"  by Pink Floyd.  OMGosh I so remember these MTV video's, lol. 



I know, sorry for the ear worm, lol. 

MindCraft has these little multicolor bricks in them, so I decided to put some of Jeep's last Birthday Party together with mixing Another Brick in the Wall with Mindcraft.   I had downloaded some cool MindCraft digital paper I found on Etsy.   The Jeep came from a box that the Laser Tag rental people gave him with some treats in it.  So it found its way to the trash and I quickly reused it, lol.  Here are my Scrap Pages:




1980 BillBoard Top 10 - Another Brick in the Wall
 
 The design team would like to thank Kenny K for providing us with awesome images for this Challenge!  And for being this weeks sponsor! 

 
I really am loving using my stamps and dies in my scrap pages.  The just add a certain touch to them.  I made my own Creeper punch art on the Vertical Gift pocket Die and added some journaling hidden away on a Ticket Book die.  I had some "road" washi tape and I thought I was using camo washi but now that I look at it, it's more of a cow print, lol.  It works though.  The 80's were definitely a time of Cassette Tapes and Walkmans.  Pac Man and leg warmers.  Definitely a great time to be a teenager!
 
For Jeep's 11th birthday, we hired a laser tag company that came with 10 guns, vests and a Commando.   We decided to make our own shields with some large cardboard boxes that something or another came in, lol.   The kids painted their own Mindcraft blocks on them with some help from Dad.  The Castle and Wall boards were left overs from our Wedding.  Joe painted a beautiful castle scene and the archway here shows where we stood to get married.  We had a great time and I couldn't just let those go, the painting is fabulous.  So we kept them all these years and decided to go ahead and put them out so the kids would have other structures to hide behind.  They had a lot of fun that day and I still have many great pictures, so I think I might have to do some kind of project life theme with the rest of them.  I haven't done that before, but it's looking more and more necessary. 
 
I cannot wait to see what you come up with for this weeks theme!
