The Corrosive Challenge #180 - 80s to the Max Blog Hop with Sassy Studio Designs




Hello!  Are you ready to party like it's 1989?!?!  It's my 40th birthday this week and to celebrate The Corrosive Challenge has teamed up with sponsor Sassy Studio Designs to bring you a totally awesome 80s to the Max birthday blog hop!  And it seems I’m not the only August baby on the two teams so there’s even more rad reasons for festivities!  There are LOTS of ways to win so be sure to stop by the challenge blog or SSD for all the details!

Our challenge this fortnight is a birthday one with a twist: "It's Only A  Number" - create a birthday themed project which includes a number on it.  EVERYONE who enters will receive a special Sassy Studio Designs image, Boom Box Sassy, for FREE!  Your project doesn't have to be 80s themed...  As long as it's for a birthday and contains a number (alpha or numerical), you're in!  BUT if you use a SSD image you will receive a bonus entry for the grand prize!  Want another reason to play along?  Our Top 3 this fortnight will also win a prize!  Each Top Pick will receive two images from the new SSD 80s release!

Lindsay, the owner and artist behind Sassy Studio Designs, has created a whole collection of 80s themed images as her August release just for this occasion!  Though I was born in the 70s, I grew up during the 80s and absolutely LOVE them!  These images are so much fun and will bring you right back to the decade of distinctive pop culture, music, and trends!  The winner of our challenge this fortnight will win the ENTIRE SSD 80s COLLECTION!!!  (Can't wait to win them?  You can purchase them HERE now!)  To see all the gorgeous images being featured by our two righteous design teams, please join us for my birthday blog hop!  The Sassy and Corrosive dudes and dudettes have designed some most excellent projects for you!  A random comment will be selected from each blog to win that featured image!  The more blogs you visit and comment on, the more chances to win you have!  If you've arrived from Lori's blog, you're totally cool, but here is the complete list, just in case:

For another chance to win, we have five 80s themed trivia questions here and five more on the SSD blog.  Answer them for a chance to win 4 images from the new release!  There will be a separate winner from both blogs!  Simply commenton the posts on The Corrosive Challenge and SSD blogs with your answers.  Comments left that contain all 5 correct answers will be eligible to win and a random winner will be selected from among them!

 And, finally, don't forget to show us your birthday creations featuring a number (can be either words or numerical).

Deadline for the hop and trivia is 11:59pm Eastern time on Saturday, August 10th.  Winners of the blog hop and trivia will be announced Sunday, August 11th.  The challenge will run for the usual two weeks and winners will be announced on Monday, August 19th.

I love the 80s...  Gravity defying bangs and Aquanet.  Bon Jovi and Corey Hart.  *swoon*  The Goonies on VHS and Jem on TV.  MTV.  When they actually played videos!  Sweet Valley High books.  The whole series!  It is my favorite decade to date and I could go on reminiscing forever, but I suppose you want to see what I've created with these awesome 80s images!

I actually have two cards to share: one with the voluptuous Jessica Rabbit (which will be the image one lucky commentor wins from my blog) and another with our rockin' freebie, Boom Box Sassy!



Jessica isn't bad... She's just drawn that way!  And then colored with Copics before being fussy cut.  Her dress is amply covered in Xmas Red Stickles.  I started with Sketch #81 from Papertake Weekly and went from there.  I've used several dies (Floral Ovals and Classic Ovals from Spellbinders as well as Skyline Border and By the Number Die-namics from My Favorite Things).  Papers are Creative Imagination Marah Johnson Love Conquers All.  I added a couple of flowers and a MFT sentiment to finish off the card.  This one will be going to my best friend's daughter next month.  I'm told she is a fan of Miss Rabbit's!



My next card is for a very good friend who is also turning 40 this year (the day after me).  I thought it would be fun to use the new Boom Box Sassy!  This cutie will be given free to anyone who enters The Corrosive Challenge this fortnight!  And she is SO me back in the 80s (only my jeans were MUCH tighter!  lol)!  Music was my thing and I still remember the pink boom box that sat on the headboard of my waterbed!  Now if that isn't 80s, I don't know what is!



My image is again colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I had such a fabulous time creating this!  I finally got to use some My Favorite Things goodies that I bought at the beginning of this year.  See that die cut cassette tape?  That is their Accent It - Cassette Tape Die-namics paired with their Journal It - Playlist stamp set!  I also used several other MFT products here: Birthday Sentiments stamp set (inside) plus Jumbo Scallops Border and By the Number Die-namics.  Papers are the Birthday Wishes stack by DCWV.  My layout is courtesy of Seems A Little Sketchy (#44).




Thanks for being here as I count down my final days as a "thirtysomething" and enter a new decade!  Your next stop on the hop is the lovely and talented Kathy!  When you're done, I hope you're in love with these fun images as much as I am and inspired to play along with us!

The small man and I are off to a birthday party this afternoon for a boy Kayne goes to day care with.  This is the first party we've been invited to that isn't one of MY friends' kids.  It's kind of exciting and stressful at the same time!  This morning will be for making his card, wrapping his presents, and whipping up some Oreo truffles!  See, I'm last minute with everything, not just my crafting!  lol

So grab a cup of coffee... or tea... a glass of wine perhaps... (or Tang!) and settle in for a trip down memory lane!  I'll be hopping myself later and I can't wait to see what the teams have created!
