Back in Time

Hi Peeps,
Unfortunately due to a tight university schedule this month and exams I wasnt able to get an example layout done for the current theme this month at Scrap That Song which is...........

Yep you guessed it.........the good ole 80's
Are you inspired? 

Maybe I can help you out a bit............let's jump in the time machine and check it out

Can you remember the big hair, ruffle skirts, hoop earrings, coloured sunglasses, bright bold fashion, leg warmers? Oh and don't forget the lacey only wore one didn't you?

And what about the music?

Bands with big hair.............that is all - he he

And for good measure this was MOI in the 80's with my brother

But if I was me now in the 80's I would probably have looked like this........

He he he - that is super scary

Ok let's jump back in the time machine and get back to reality

I hope I have inspired you all a bit to have a go at the challenge - You have until the end of the month to link your layouts

Last but not least here is a little poem for inspiration -
Jelly shoes or Kangaroos 
White Keds 
Spiral perms, mullets galore, rat tails 
One long, dangly, silver earring
Gnarly, dude! Where's the beef?
 I wanna skip school with Ferris Bueller 
Drive a DeLorean 
Learn karate from Mr. Miyagi 
Sing like Debbie Gibson 
Collect scratch-n-sniff stickers 
Grab George Michael's butt 
Organize my flavored lip gloss and Lee Press-On Nails in my pink Caboodle 
Show off my Liz Claiborne purse and my Swatch watch 
Skate like Tony Hawk 
Trade Messy Tessy for Potty Scotty 
Play "Donkey Kong" or "Frogger" on the Atari 
Moonwalk like Michael Jackson 
Kiss Han Solo 
Flirt like Smurfette 
Flaunt my Esprit shirt and Guess jeans 
Smell like Strawberry Shortcake 
Hug my Care Bear
Avoid the Noid!
Can I take my Cabbage Patch Kid to school, Mom? Please? 
I won't get Gizmo wet or feed him after midnight, I promise. 
How high can my bangs go? Not high enough! 
Alex P. Keaton, will you tutor me? Is Mallory still dating Nick? 
Where's my Big League Chew? 
Marry me, John Cusack!
Like, gag me with a spoon! 
I hate the 80's and wish I'd grown up in a different decade...NOT!

Happy Scrapping

Clinical A

Hi Girls,

It was my turn to do an uplift for May on the BOXX and I apologise sincerely for not posting until......June :0
I have had this project on the back burner for a while but unfortunately my life tends to get in the way of my scrapping.

I picked a layout in the gallery over at the Boxx a while back and I can't think of anyone better to uplift than the wonderfully talented Leeann Pearce  - I am a big fan of her style and also of her Etsy shop The Chip Chop Shop. If you haven't checked out her blog or her shop I highly recommend that you head over for a sneek peek.

This is the layout I created with her inspiration - 

And this is her wonderful layout - 

How gorgeous is that...........she is amazingly talented
Here are some closies - 

Bo Bunny and Chip Chop Shop goodness

Sticker sayings and embellies

And lastly my journalling

I used some of the wonderful BO Bunny "Ambrosia" range of pattern paper and embellishments that can be purchased at the BOXX Shop.


Hope you have all had a scrappy weekend
Till next time
