hip hop: just say no!


hey hip hoppers! remember those great anti-drug commercials from the 80's? like the dad confronting his son with a bag o' weed and the kids yelling, "i learned it from you, ok? i learned it from YOU!" or the ever popular one with the eggs frying, "this is your brain...this is your brain on drugs. get it?!" we used to make fun of those like crazy! however, they must have made an impression deep in my soul because i stayed far away from those evil things. :)




after leaving my blog, go and check out maren's blog http://zanynotcrazy.blogspot.com/. she makes stunning cards and really cute mini albums! you will dig it!

That is truly a wonderful set and project. Too close to me personally, one of our kids had a problem in HS but Thank God he's clean, sober, in his 20s and working and most importantly ALIVE now. Thank You for the inspiration. Donna

I'm in the UK, so I don't remember the fried egg ads, but I DO remember a particularly 80s pop song by a group of child actors called "Just Say No" In fact, I think you should look it up, lol, it's just deliciously . . .dreadful ;)
