Hambo's Time Machine Blog Hop

Welcome to "Hambo's Time Machine" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you fun creations that depict something cool from the 1980's!
It might be our favorite book, something in the news then, a fashion fad, a song, or something that really stuck out to us in looking back.
If you arrived here from DEBORAH you are in the right place!
If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize!

A prize will be awarded to one participant whose creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy in a hammin’ jammin’ way!  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all of the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hambo company blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, September 25, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog. We love comments anytime, but the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, September 22 at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

Here's what I made:

Let's Get Physical
The first time I saw this digi, it reminded me of, none other than...

OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN!

Remember that song! It came out in the 80's!

...and I also used a Dymo Labeller to make the sentiment.
Did you have one of them in the 80's? I didn't but I always wished and dreamed to have one!!
Now, I finally have one!!! hehe!

Now swing on over to JEANNIE for another great trip back to the 80's that will jog your memory, or show you something you missed!
