For my movie creations, I decided to create a little tribute to my favorite decade, the 80's! I'm a total child of the 80's - I'd show you what I looked like back then with my two-toned hair and gummy bracelets galore, but oh darn, my photos are all packed away in anticipation of our move... ;-) I've mentioned before my love for 80's music - well there are plenty of great 80's movies too! Let's get to it, shall we?
This whole idea started when I saw the new Amish digi. As soon as I saw Monica (or Tim?) post it on Facebook, I had to have it, it's just too cute & funny. I wanted to use it immediately. Then it occurred to me - hellloooooo, Witness! Ahhh, classic Harrison Ford. *swoon*
Then I started thinking about other movies I loved in my youth. One of my all time favorites was Pretty in Pink. The girl from this Dress Up stamp is rather pretty in pink, wouldn't you say? And I thought this sentiment was perfect, because in the end Andie's sweet adorable friend Duckie did indeed make it better. (Favorite line: "This is an incredibly romantic moment, and you're ruining it for me!")
Next up, one of my all-time favorites. Are you ready for it? The Lost Boys!! (I know I've shocked you in the past with my confessions about loving vampires, long before they were sparkly...) I had to mask off the pumpkin in Vampire Pig's hands to make this card non-Halloweeny. And I created my own sentiment using a line from the movie. And if you're wondering, the answer is NO, I have absolutely no idea who I'd ever actually send this card to with that sentiment. LOL!! Just being silly...
And finally - Weird Science. It's impossible to own the Mad Scientist digi and not make a Weird Science card for this hop. In my book anyway.
I haven't been stamping much lately so I'm super duper rusty - I needed to lean on a sketch challenge to get my creative juices flowing. All of these cards were inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch, turned on it's side.
Ok I've kept you here for FAR too long. Now I'd like to send you on your way, over to Heather's fabulous blog!!
