What's Old is New Again
Last month on the Two Peas message board, we were having a chat about new trends at CHA. I brought up the fact that I couldn't understand why puffy stickers were making a comeback. Much to my surprise there are many puffy sticker fans, including Garden Girl, Corrie J. We had quite the discussion about the product and Corrie (the ultimate puffy-sticker-lover) told us to get prepared - she would be issuing a puffy sticker challenge in the near future. I (reluctantly) purchased a few packs of stickers from Two Peas in preparation for the challenge. I was so excited to see the 213 in 2013 video last week... Our challenge was finally here. By the way, Corrie's layout is absolutely STUNNING! If you'd like to see puffy sticker perfection, be sure to check out her gallery at Two Peas.
I've been going through some old photos and I found some snapshots from a trip to Jamaica in 1989. The hilarious thing about these photos is that we're dressed in neon clothing. Fast forward 24 years and neon is back, too! Seriously, what's next, shoulder pads? I decided to have some fun and combine the two and come up with something new. Here is my updated version of two resurging trends combined.
How fun is this layout? I can't believe I'm admitting this, but I've actually grown quite fond of the adorable, little puffy stickers. I suppose the lesson in this is to be open to new (old) things and never say never! Thanks C.J. for the challenge and the inspiration for this layout.
