A Good Laugh at My Expense!

Noel is hosting a School Days challenge HERE. To add to our fun, she sent us a link called "Yearbook Yourself." You are able to transpose your face onto hairstyles from the different decades. Silly me, actually decided to scrap this goofy pic! I may not have graduated in the 70's, but I was a child of this cool decade! Don't ya remember how hot John Travolta was in Saturday Night Fever? Or the Bionic Man? Remember when kids actually played outside? Steal the Bacon, Ghost in the Graveyard? Avocado Green appliances? My bedroom was actually bright orange and yellow! (And I liked it!) Wide pants, pointed collars? Long straight, parted hair? So even though the pic is a bit silly, it did make me go back in time and remember bits from my childhood! The kit I used for this LO, is the awesome Homeroom Kit! It is currently sold out, but the Extra Credit Kit is still available!
I also made a card using some of my smaller pieces left from the Homeroom Kit. I used my Cricut machine to cut the basket. (Which is cut from "yummy" October Afternoon paper!) The black DP is also in the kit. The ticket happened to be on my desk and I thought it "worked" on this card!
