Tribute to Dick Clark

Welcome to our Tribute to Dick Clark, American Band Stand, 50's Style Blog Hop!! 

Who remembers getting up on Saturday mornings to dance along to the American Bandstand?  The actual American Bandstand show started on August 5, 1957. This is why we decided to bring this hop all the way back to the 50’s. So sit back, shake your booty, do the hula hoop, or have a Coke float and come hop with us. 

We have some talented women that have joined this hop! If you would like to start at the beginning please go to Pamela's Blog 

And of course we wouldn't want to forget the CANDY!!! For the Grand Prize, Melissa from Kadoodle Bug Designs is offering a $15 GC to her store!!!!!

To be eligible, all you have to do is:
Here's today's line-up in case you get lost:

Since I was not around to watch American Bandstand, the music from that era has impacted my life.  Both my parents were born in the late 50's and I vividly recall growing up listening to the Beatles, Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Buddy Holly, and many others.  I have always enjoyed the music of that era and it will forever hold a special place in my heart.  For my project I made this adorable stack of records container.  The glasses are my favorite part of this project ~ I remember wanting a pair of these as a kid =)   (Yes, I have been called a flower child and still love all that was about that era, despite never being a part of it!)

For this project, I used the following:
SVG Cuts for the cut files
Recollection Paper
American Crafts Paper

Now I must send you dancing along to 

Don't forget, to win the candy you must stop by all the blogs and give some love!!

Dick Clark you will be missed!
