Paper Smooches Sparks September Trend Watch Challege

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

It's the first Monday in September so it's time for me to share another 
Paper Smooches Sparks Trend Watch Challenge with you.

This week's challenge is RETRO FAB!!
Love it!!

I'm so happy that retro is trendy. I love it all. :)

When I saw this challenge I immediately went for my jukebox image. 
The Perpetual Bliss set has to be one of my favourites.

The diner and all that comes with it has always been an obsession of mine.
My dream job as a kid was to either be an A&W carhop or a diner waitress, preferably one that allowed me to serve on roller skates. :)

And Grease was a movie that my Mom and I rented A LOT!!
My favourite scene is the one with Frenchy and her pink hair, in the diner
where Frankie Avalon sings to her about dropping out of beauty school!!

So that's where I went with it.

I used Perpetual Bliss and Alphadots to create this card.
The papers I downloaded and purchased from Design House Digital, Rockabilly paper pack by Audrey Neal.

I can't wait to see what you guys come up with using this fabulous trend as inspiration. 

Don't forget to stop by the rest of the DT's blogs and leave them some love.

Also remember that by playing along you have an opportunity to win a $30 store credit!! I mean how fabulous is that. :)
Head on over to the Paper Smooches Sparks blog to check out all of the details.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    No graduation day for you.
    Beauty school dropout,
    Missed your midterms and flunked shampoo!
    Well at least you could have taken time, to wash and clean
    your clothes up,
    After spending all that dough to have the doctor fix your nose

    Best lyrics ever, haha!

    Um, yeah this card is awesome! I too love all that is retro and often think I was born in the wrong era. :)

  9. Love the fabulous check on the jukebox! Such a rocking' card - pun totally intended! I love Grease too! When I was 10 years old we did the play at summer camp and I played Vince Fontaie. I still remember that silly little rap of his. "Thank you fans and friends and odds and ends..." :)
