Your hint was...Hope you are feeling pretty! I feel pretty...
(no I wasn't going to type "Oh so pretty next"...I don't know that Julie Andrews song...) :oops:
but bet you are humming it now! :lol:

So...
Pretty In Pink – use pink, pastel, or spring inspired projects.
Doesn’t sound like your “cup of tea” How about an 80’s inspired project…
A lot of different ways that this can be taken…it’s up to you to do your magic.

Need some more ideas? Check out some great quotes from the movie.

I like this one…

Andie: So what do you want to drink?
Duckie: Oh you know, beer, scotch, juice box... whatever.

Quotes don’t do it for you? Try cranking up one of these songs from the soundtrack. Maybe that will jog your memory!

"Pretty In Pink" The Psychedelic Furs
"Wouldn't It Be Good" Nik Kershaw
"Round, Round" Belouis Some
"Copacabana (At The Copa)" Barry Manilow
"If You Leave" Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (as OMD).
"Shell-Shock" New Order
"Cherish" The Association
"Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want" The Smiths

Have fun!! I mean I don’t remember this movie…I wouldn’t have been old enough to see it in the theaters … :roll:
From all those pictures (because I don't remember), here's my take on the 80s version of this challenge..

I'm sure my mother dreamed of being Julie Andrews we had all her records on a big old Akai reel to reel player!!! :D
She could do an awesome impression of her!
LOVE Nick Kershaw was only listening to 'Wouldn't it be good' this morning- had an 80's crush on him- trouble was he was so diddy- I was taller than him by the time I was 14!!!! :lol:

I'm PLAYING pls!!!!
