Craft Dash 21, Color Throwdown and More :)

Happy Hump Day!!!!  So glad it's Wednesday!  It's been a rough week so far, but how awesome was it, when I got home and found NEW STAMPS in my mailbox??  I'll tell you.... VERY awesome.  Just got my new stamps from Reverse Confetti, and thought the current Craft Dash Challenge to incorporate stars would be a great one to use them on.

It also happens to be the 5 year anniversary of the Color Throwdown - so I went ahead and grabbed their summery color scheme, which also makes me think of the 50's... aqua, pink, and yellow...aaahhhh :).

What could have been cooler in the 50's than Rock 'n' Roll??

Used the star image to make my background, and there are also little stars in the centers of the records...cute, right?  I used my white glaze pen to make the 'shine' marks on the records.

When my husband and I were house hunting, there was this cute little house that was all brick on the outside, but boy was it 50's on the inside!!  Formica everywhere, and it was robin's egg blue and yellow!  The kitchen was super retro, and if it wouldn't have been priced so high, I would have LOVED to have gotten this place, and updated the rest of the house around the awesome old kitchen.  It was begging to have a rotary dial phone on the wall, too.

I grew up listening to 50's music, so whenever I hear a certain song, it brings me back to my childhood - lots of good memories :).

OH!  and before I forget -- here's my time :)  CLOSE one!

Thanks for popping by -- hope you're having a great week!!
