1987

1987............ what were you doing then? Apparently, I was going to my homecoming! I was 16 in this photo.....although I think I look like I am 12! That is my hubby next to me. Yep, dated and married that guy! Although his waist size has significantly grown since this picture! LOL! (Ok...maybe mine has gotten a wee bit bigger, and "things" have redistributed a bit!) Don't ya just love that peach colored dress? Admit it, your jealous! : )


Oh yea, and the butt bow? Allllllll the dresses then had Butt bows!


I used Noel Mignon's Lovely Day's kit for this LO. The only thing I added were the Thickers and the Tim Holtz mask I used for the background. I love those things, just plop them down, and take your favorite spray paint and spray away! I used a brown suede paint here. (It really looks like suede IRL)
And really, 1987 DOES seem like a lifetime ago. Sheesh, where does the time go???!!
Happy Tuesday!!!

Wow, our picture of the same year is almost identical - my dress was strapless & boyfriend (now hubby)'s suit was gray. He's also a lot taller than me and yes, he & I have both filled out since then. Oh the memories!!

Those were the days of big hair, big belts, chunky fashion jewelry and bright eyeshadow! I remember it well. I was married and it was a year before I had my first daughter. Time does fly...
