Cropping to the 80's and PIT Crop info!

This 8o's challenge is inspired by the Rubrik's Cube. Nikki wanted us to create a layout using square photos and use at least three colors of the Rubik's Cube. My color are white, green and yellow.

and Jenny said that neon colors are a must

along with Ange's cool phrases like sweet!

but first Niki said that we need to put on our slouch socks

have Deb crimp our hair or heart's

so we can rock to the 80's with Charlotte in style.

Keep checking back as I will be adding other 80's lo as I complete them.

Also this weekend Lesley from Page in Time is hosting an Online Crop
on June 13, 2009 at 7am ET to June 14, 2009 at 6pm ET
This is their first of a series of monthly online crops to host.
The theme is "GIVE ME 5 FOR KIDS" (This theme is simply recognizing and making everyone aware of all those kids in hospitals all over the world that don't have enough equipment to help them have a fair chance of survival; a fund raising cause that Lesley supports in Australia).
Hope to see you there!
