I Love the 80's Blog HOP!

So totally rad that ya'll are joining us for the I Love the 80's Blog Hop.  You should have totally started the awesome hop at Raven's blog . Remember to leave Raven some Happy Birthday love. Psst... many of the women on the hop will be giving away a lil something something. I put together something for one lucky winner so please leave me a comment to win and if you follow me please leave me 2 comments (My way of saying thank you). I'll announce the winner November 5th.

Here's my contribution. (Please be kind) It's my first time using the Cricut exclusively. Of course I had to use a Peachy Keen Stamp and a bit of bling but other than that all cricut. I made this for someone VERY VERY special and hope they like it.

Onto the hop...


Dust off your plastic bracelets, turn off your Atari and turn your boom box on as you join us for a journey back to the 1980's.

Here's a list of the hop order in case you get turned around:
Vanessa (Your Here)

What I used:
Laffy Taffy Peachy Keen Faces
SU Paper
Patterned paper from my stash
Bling from Hobby Lobby
Copics
Metallic Paint from Hobby Lobby
Hello Kitty Cricut Cartridge
Rock Princess Cricut Cartridge
