The Bacon Bits, along with some Hambo friends, have used Hambo images to create iconic moments in time from the decade of the 1980s. You might see songs, movies, TV shows, or even something else from the era represented. How many do you recognize? Hop along with us and see!
As usual with our hops, there are prizes to be won: a $15 shopping spree in our digi store will be awarded to a randomly-drawn time-traveler who leaves a comment at each of the blog stops along the way, and a $20 Hambo site-wide shopping spree will go to the creator of the project voted "Best in Show" by our Bacon Bits. Though we appreciate comments any time, the deadline for prize consideration comments is Sunday, September 22 at 5:00 PM CST. We'll reveal the winners on this blog, as well as on our Hoedown blog, on Wednesday, September 25 ... so don't forget to check back!
Now buckle your seat-belt as we flash back to 1983 to an iconic movie, which not only gave us a terrific soundtrack, but sparked a fashion trend...
Jennifer Beals played a welder by day, and a dancer by night. Remember the droopy sweatshirts? I'm pretty sure we owe that fad to this movie. The first time I ever saw break-dancing was a street-scene in this movie as well, and I was amazed that bodies could even move that way. Popular songs from the movie included "Maniac" by Michael Sembello and the title song "Flashdance... What a Feeling" by Irene Cara.
For my card, I used Hambo's Sweat Hog rubber stamp, along with the Stage background digi stamp. The pig appropriately wore leg warmers already, and I used a pen to draw in the sweatshirt over the leotard before I colored it.
