Here's the Rules:
1. The gift will be a mystery of my choice created especially for each recipient. It might be a handmade creation, it might be store bought.
2. I have one year to get all 5 gifts together. Although I doubt it will take me THAT long. :)
3. If you're one of the 5 people chosen to receive a gift from me, you must make a Pay It Forward posting on your own blog soon after I announce you as one of my recipients to keep this movement going. A link back to my blog will be much appreciated too!
4. When you receive your gift from me you should make a post on your blog to show everyone what I gave you inspiring others to follow the chain and participate.

If you are already going through the blog hop and have been through the first 4 girls challenges then you should be coming to me with crimped hair, neon colored ensembles, colorful scrunchy socks and be all heavy metaled out. Talk about starting off a blog hop with a bang ha?
MY challenge is for you to think of an 80's Icon, Fad or Toy (say for instance: Atari, Pac-Man, Strawberry Shortcake, Smurfs, Rubik's Cube, Chinese Jacks, Rainbow Brite, Pound Puppies, etc.) and use it for inspiration on your layout.
It's a prize package worth approx. $25 for you to enjoy!
So go get scrapping and when your done come back and go to Amy's Crop Challenge to see what's in store for you next!
Here are MY takes on some of these ladies challenges:
For Deb's CRIMPING Challenge I used a strip of white corrugated paper. My layout is of my darling daughters Eva and Deja and I titled this "Heart and Soul".
Here's my two-fer for Jenny B. and Niki Ray's challenges. Jenny B's rules were to use neon colors and I used hyper orange. Niki Ray's rules were to use 2 dominating colors + something music related and I used the colors orange and teal + a strip of music sheet patterned paper. This is a picture of me when I was a youngen' in the 80's. I LOVED my Jelly sandals so much that I went to bed with them on - Hence the title "I went to bed with My Jellies on!".
For Amy's "Hair" Challenge I thought it fit to create some altered items for my Mother-In-Law who works as a hairstylist. I made a personalized banner to go above her mirror at her work station, a hair brush holder and a tip jar.
This layout is for Ange's "80's Slang" Challenge. The layout is titled "Oh My GOTH!" These are pictures of my friend's granddaughter.
This layout was made with 3 challenges in mind. My own, Debbie's "Video Games" Challenge and Jackie's "PacMan" Challenge. The layout is titled "Where's PACMAN when you need him?" I thought it fit since the paper was filled with a bunch of white pellet dots. This is me as a toddler with my broken leg playing my PacMan Game. Oh how I loved that game!!! I still play it on my cell phone today.
I used pictures of my friends granddaughter for Michelle's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper Challenge.
