The 1980's.....those were totally tubular times!

It's almost time for the 
and this years theme is Celebrate The '80's
Ah....the '80's. The big hair, leg warmers, fingerless gloves and shoulder pads.
Those were good times, weren't they?
The Emerald Creek Dares DT were given the task of designing projects for the  Emerald Creek Crafts Supplies booth for Carnival and I couldn't think of any better way to get inspired than by listening to
top hits of the '80's by Canadian artists. 

Seriously, how can you NOT be inspired when listening to Echo Beach by Martha & The Muffins. 

Or how about The Glass Tiger classic - 'Don't Forget Me When I'm Gone. 
Patio Lanterns by Kim Mitchell was always a favorite tune to play on the tape deck
I have to say that the most iconic song for the 80's to me was Summer of '69 by Bryan Adams
Well, I'm off to tease my hair high & knit myself a pair of neon pink leg warmers!

Check out the Emerald Creek Dares blog for more totally tubular '80's project for the rest of the DT.
