SAF: 1980's

I stayed up in bed for at least an hour last night remembering things from the 80's that I was going to list here with the card I made to go with Lexi's challenge.  Boy, did this challenge ever bring back the memories.   However, time will not permit a full list that I came up with right now.  Gotta get this posted quickly before church tonight.  I will come back and add in all my memories of music, clothes, fads, and other things I remembered.  I am totally a child of the 80's since I was born in 1972 and spent most of my elementary through high school years in the 80's.  I graduated from High School in 1990.  Loved all of it although I was usually a bit behind everyone on the music, and I tended to favor classic preppy clothes over the trendy fads.

Here is my card that I am entering in the 80s challenge and the morning timer challenge.  I used one of Heather's old tag sets for the notebook circle and 80s script.  I used super stripes background set for the stripes and Stampin' UP! inks for the rainbow colors.  I used one of the striped sketches from the morning timer challenge.  Enjoy.  It's, like, totally awesome!!!

Parachute pants,
