Ahh... The 80's.
Reaganomics... MTV... Super Mario Bros... Molly Ringwald and the Brat Pack... big hair... and of course, the fashion! The iconic neons, the acid washed denim, the leg warmers, the shoulder pads!
This week's Color Play Friday is called 80's Skate Party and it brings back all those most excellent memories.
How rad is this picture?! I would love to go to an 80's themed roller skate party. Although, I think the last time I actually went roller skating was in the 80's; I fell and broke my wrist. Gasp! I just remembered my cast was neon pink! How did I forget that?! If that's not a sign of the times, I don't know what is! Hahaha.
Here is my color palette/bundle based on this week's photo.
Naturally I had to go the neon route this week. I swear I had a bathing suit that had all these colors on it. Lol. I think this is such a choice color palette and I can totally see it working in the 80's as well as today.
I "shopped" for fabrics from Hawthorne Threads.

Color Play Friday is a weekly challenge hosted by Trina from In an Otter Life and Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine. Every week they offer up one of their photographs and then all the participants create a color palette and fabric bundle based off the photo.
As always, if you are interested in playing along please check out the hosts' pages for more info. You can click either of the CPF buttons on my sidebar.
