Friday, August 1st - Convention - Day 3 - BLOG CANDY TIME!

*Note* This post was written on July 27th.

Today I will be learning more and doing another Make & Take! Yay.

Here is another one of my general swaps. Pretty in Pink and Close to Cocoa is my favorite color combination. I used these in a few of my swaps!


Supplies: Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White; Ink: Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa; Accessories: Vintage Brads, Tissue Paper; Tools: Paper Crimper, Anywhere Glue Stick; Stamps: Always; Techniques: Faux Silk.

OK it is finally time for some Blog Candy!

How to win:

I've been thinking of the 80s a lot lately, because of the party I will be attending tomorrow night, so in keeping with that spirit and Stampin' Up!'s 20th anniversary, I want you to think back to the 80s and tell me what your favorite part was and what you miss the most. It could be a memory, favorite movie, song, style anything from the 80s. Just comment on this post sometime between now and midnight (EST) Sunday, August 3, 2008. I will pick a winner on Monday, August 4th.

I do not know what will be included yet in the Blog Candy, but I know it will include For a Friend stamp set among other things.

Have fun at convention! I miss the movies - Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo' Fire - they don't make movies like that any more!

Let's see...in 1980 I was 8....so I'm thinking Strawberry Shortcake was probably pretty special! I remember a lunchbox, a cookbook, notebooks and the dolls of course!
They were such *sweet* toys for little kids...now we have Bratz! Ugh!

Can't wait to see your posts when you get back!!

Hi Crissy! This is such a great idea! I loved the 80s (even though I was only 4 in 1980)! Hmmm...well, I agree with Michelle about Strawberry Shortcake and with Cindy about all the great John Hughes films...and I felt super old last week when I flipped on QVC and found out that it's the 25th anniversary of Cabbage Patch Kids - yikes! I had 5 of them! But, I'd have to say my favorite part of the 80's was MTV. Remember the original VJs???? And they actually played music videos, not reality shows??? And the music - Duran Duran, Talking Heads, The Police, Bananarama, Madonna and Prince(before they turned into such weirdos!), Cyndi Lauper, the Go-Gos, Rick Springfield - I could go on forever!!!!
Whoo, thanks for the trip down memory lane! Can't wait to read everyone else's faves.
Hope you're having a great time at convention!

I was a child in the 80s so what I miss most is seeing all of my grandparents and swim parties. Good memories. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

My favorite thing about the 80s was being born! No really, my favorite thing was the large hair! Thanks for having blog candy.

Hope you have a great time at the party! I was born in the 80's so my memories are kinda sparse. However, I do remember LOVING Michael Jackson and New Kids on the Block! Yeah for MJ.
