Good Old Days - new this week at The Digichick, and an awesome cluster to share!

This week I have a fun collection - based on how things were when I grew up.   I'm 57 - and was a child of the late sixties - graduating in 1975.  No cell phones.  No internet....heck, PONG was brand new back then..and if you don't know what PONG was - google it.   It was THE thing to have (and I got one for my little brothers for Christmas the year they came out - pre Atari, even!).  We rode our bikes (yes, we rode bicycles everywhere!) without helmets.  We came home when the street lights came on.  Hanging out at local parks - even in High School could be fun.  I still love to play around on a good Merry Go Round and swing high on the swings :)   I had a great transistor radio...and on a good night could get WLS out of Chicago - and if I was REALLY lucky, I could tune that in during the day and get Larry Lujack (Uncle Lar and Little Tommy!).  He was a fantastic, fun, and FUNNY DJ back then :)   I loved growing up in that time!  So this collection is a tribute to a simpler time - and is jam packed with all sorts of great papers and elements to make your layouts fun!  Best of all?  Its on sale thru Sunday for 30% off in my shop at the Digichick :)   I have some great clusters that go with this....tonights is from my dear friend Anita, made with the new collection :)


and a little inspiration!








Aren't those fun and fabulous?  I love my Creative Team!

  3. Anita this is wonderful. Kim, Oh the memories of WLS and Larry Lujack, and the jingle W L S...in Chicago! Great rock and roll station back then. I used to be able to get this station in my driveway in California, after I married. Growing up in the mid-west when TVs were far and few between homes, having to entertain ourselves, without electronics, walking or riding bikes everywhere. An era of "what would the neighbors think?", so everyone knew not to misbehave or your parents would know before you got home. The simpler times, when imaginations soared, books were read during the summer breaks, hopscotch was a game many played, and fresh air and exercise were part of our daily lives. A time before McDonalds, with home cooked meals, hot lunches prepared in the schools. A time when ethics, morals, and values meant something to everyone. One could leave their house unlocked, and if it rained, the neighbor would come in and shut the windows. I think it was better then, although we didn't know it at the time. Thanks for the memories and the freebie.

  4. I didn't get the frame cluster either. It was a duplicate of the cluster with the chinese checkers board.
