80’s are back

This week is Drug-Free week at the schools around here- and a lot of other places from what I understand.

This week my daughter gets to dress up in fun themes- and today they are flashing back to the 80’s -which I was told by my 6 year old, is the “old days.”  Wow–how fast one ages, after having a child in school!  As a child of the 80’s I feel like they weren’t THAT long ago–but, for her being born in 2005–the 80’s doesn’t even seem imaginable!

I helped her pick out an outfit for today’s theme- a bright band tshirt, even if it was Hannah Montana–I would have LOVED to get my hands on a New Kids on the Block tshirt in her size…and mine for that matter 😉

I cut a few slits in it, and paired it with a tank top – and then she wore leggings and a neon colored tutu type skirt that I made last night.  I also put rollers in her hair last night, so we could tease her hair a bit this morning and put it in a side-ponytail.  Luckily she had some hi-tops that I picked up at Tuesday Morning a few weeks ago for $2 and she has leg warmers because I just can’t stop buying them!

The only thing I wish we had for today, is a hair crimper—remember those?!  That would have been so fun, and such a great lesson to her on how the “old people” from the “old days” used to do their hair 🙂

To take this day even further- I decided to make an 80’s style card for her to give her teacher–because I am sure my daughter won’t even know what the image is on this card!


I made this card with the Cricut Indie Art cartridge, DCWV All abut Girls solid paper mat stack, My Mind’s Eye Lime Twist Let’s Fly a Kite for all of the patterned paper–and that cute little cassette tape is on an Action Wobble!!  Also…. the stamps are a SNEAK PEEK for the next Pink by Design Release.

The release is scheduled for November 4th, at 8:30 CST –maybe we should make it an 80’s theme Ustream?!  What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
