New challenge and more birds!

The new challenge is up at ScrapMojo. It's, like, a totally cool one, dude! No, in all seriousness, it is. You have to incorporate one of the given MySpace-type bulletins, ie. "You know you're from the 80's when..." and include lots and lots of layering! It's definitely a challenge, but it's completely fun and the sponsor for this challenge is Coordinate Collections. Here's my take...
Tried to go for that 90's, lots of color, super bright, vibe. I chose the 90's because even though I was born in '85, I feel as though I'm more of a 90's child because I remember more. Being 5 at the end of the 80's, I remember stuff, but mostly that stuff I'm referring to, stretched into the early 90's. I think the pic of me is from like 3rd grade or something. I'm actually surprised I used it because I hate that pic, but I guess it's all well and good. My dress had some sort of fruit print on it and my headband had Minnie Mouse, haha. I remember later that day, I started feeling really icky and on the bus ride home, it got worse. I ended up coming down with the flu, which I think is why I look a little flushed in the pic. I think that was near the end of my headband phase too. Shortly after, because of said flu, I was puking into a bucket and I had on my favorite headband (not the Minnie Mouse one, haha) and it slipped off my head and into the bucket. Turned me off towards headbands for, like, ever! lol. Anyways, get scrapping and get those LOs linked up by Oct. 30th! :)

Before I head off to do some errands, I'll leave you with my 2 new bird ornaments. I liked making the other so much, figured I'd make a few more! I only had 2 of those wooden circle thingies, so this time I had to get creative. I used the empty roll from a package of Glue Dots for the first and an empty masking tape roll for the second. See? It's all about that re-using and re-purposing. I challenge everyone to try it. It makes me feel good, like I'm not contributing quite as much waste. In reality, I probably am, but I still don't feel like I am, so I don't know. I just know it feels good, so I recommend trying it! Here are the birds (both up for sale in my Etsy shop)...
Have a good week, everyone! :)
