Remembering the 70's

I've heard it said that if you remember the 70's you weren't there.  I understand what that means because I was there and I do remember some of it, but jeez, that's a long time ago.  Those were the peace and love days when bell bottom blue jeans had to be washed a dozen times to look like they were, no such thing as stone wash back then.  Stone wash wasn't the only thing that didn't exist yet.  Here's just a few things we didn't have: cell phones; big screen TVs; cable TV; home computers and the internet; DVDs; iPods; iPads; iAnythings.  It was a much more innocent time but everything changes, it wouldn't be long before cable was in my house, and the music industry started changing.  We went from vinyl, to CDs, Walkmen to iPods.  It just keeps changing,  and I hope I can keep up with it.
Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "DG Far Out"
ink - Tuxedo "Memento Black" and My Favorite Things Color Box "Razzle Berry"
paper - Stampin' Up "Orchid Opulence" and "Crushed Curry" card stock; My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline- Fiddlesticks" dp
miscellaneous - copics; MFT "Heart Doily" die-namic; purple waxed twine; peace sign charm; Pazzles "ticket" and "peace sign" cuts; heart brads; machine stitching
