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.
