Back to the 80's!

Last night I got to travel back in time with my good buddies, Tanya and Jaci! He went back to the 80's!
We had to go see Boy George aka Culture Club...I have loved their music for the longest time, the songs never get old.
Tanya wanted to play 80's dress up but she had just flown back from Colorado and was so tired and could not get a chance to dress up. I got dressed up...I did my best to go for the Madonna 1985 look, Desperately Seeking Susan...

Too much fun! Just wish I knew how to do make up better, I need more eye liner and red lipstick. Oh well, if he comes back to town we will do it again!

Boy was not singing as good as he could, his voice was tired and he said he was on the 3rd show of a 3 string run, and at the end of 49 show run. He still did his best and thanked his fans constantly. He said he was not making excuses, just letting us know and did his best to sing his heart out, we LOVED it!

The place was packed and everyone just could not get enough of him. With the old 80's videos of Culture Club playing up on the big screens and him dancing and gliding, and smiling, cracking jokes and just loving every minute on stage, Oh it was one of my favorite concerts in a long time!

Got to hear all the old favorites and he did a tribute song to Johnny Cash, because Boy George loved his Johnny Cash!

I am still grinning from ear to ear, he was so fun to watch.

Here is a little taste of some Boy for you:

You go Girl!

I have been hard at work getting some camera straps ready for my scrapbooking retreat and my Etsy shop. Yes, us scrapbookers still use a REAL cameras (not phones) to take photos and we like to accessorize with personalized camera straps!
They are so fun to make and I must give another shout out to Tanya at BeadandNeedle who helped me perfect the whole operation, now I just grab some cool fabric and go to town!
Here are some of my latest creations:
Air Force, I have other branches of Military as well

Army, It's all about the brass, Soldier!

na, na, na, na, na, na, na, BATMAN! look at the cool catwoman button! POW!

A little ode to my mom, she loved her Dallas Cowboys!!

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, but with a little bee sting in there!

For your favorite school teacher, one of the buttons is a globe, how cool is that??

I will probably keep this one, since I live in Vegas, but just had to share!

When I saw this fabric, I thought...Holy cow, what a great fabric for a wedding photographer!!!
I have more fabric but it takes about 2 weeks to get just 8 of these made and uploaded...so I will start again next month...I have Baseball fabric: Angels, Giants, Yankees, Boston Red Sox. I have more football:Broncos, also a Breast Cancer Awareness, Paris, and a cool black and white floral!
8  more straps to be made! Let me know what you would like, I can usually locate any fabric known to man!
