Happy Birthday Jan Marie

*** Second post today. For Clear Dollar Stamps Sneaks Peeks see below post***
Happy Birthday Jan. In honor of Jan's birthday we have this fun set called Let them eat cake. This set is available in the new store here. We hope you've enjoyed our Hopping Through the Decades Celebration so far. If you're just now tuning in, be sure to start at the beginning here! If you are already hopping you should of just hopped from Betty Wright.
Now I bet a lot of you have been reminiscing and having a little giggle too. Who could forget the leg warmers of the 80’s? How about the TV shows like 90210 or the A-Team? Well, we are continuing our mini hop today that started with Dawn Burnworth.
Who is ready to remember those big hair days when Aqua Net ruled! Well I am all about the 90's. yep I was a 90's girl alright. I had all kinds of things to gow tih but I choose the cell phone bust out of the 90's. Did you know that 55 percent of the population had cell phones by 1999. And now think about who doesn't have a cell phone.

I made a cute little flip phone. I used the darling cupcake on the front. I used some metallic paper on the cell phone, which really reflects in your pictures. Below is the inside where I put one of the sentiments from the set. Isn't this so cute and fun. NOTHING like those huge brick gray phones that they first came out with. Sheesshh... Talk about stone age! bawhahahha
Your next hop is over to Latisha Yoast! Remember, you can win our new Let Them Eat Cake set drawn by artist Becky Fleck. All you need to do is leave a little love on our designer's blogs. If you comment on all 14 posts in the hop, come back to Fridays post on the blog and leave a message saying, "I hopped through the decades with Jan Marie!" We will then randomly draw 2 names on Saturday at 12 pm CST from all those who participated. The winners will receive the Let them Eat Cake stamp set along with some other goodies!

Calendar? Are you sure this isn't a "score" card to keep track of how many cupcakes you've eaten? ...oh, yes, it only goes up to nine,....guess not then.

Thanks for the yummy idea.
