Tribute to Dick Clark, American Band Stand, 50's Style Blog Hop

Welcome to our Tribute to Dick Clark, American Bandstand, 50's Style Blog Hop!!  Who remembers getting up on Saturday mornings to dance along to the American Bandstand?   The actual American Bandstand show started on August 5, 1957.  This is why we decided to bring this hop all the way back to the 50’s.  So sit back, shake your booty, do the hula hoop, or have a Coke float and come hop with us.  We have some talented women that have joined this hop!

If you came from Jennifer J. then you are dancing on the right track.  If you didn't and you would like to start at the beginning, please head over to Pamela's Blog.

And of course we wouldn't forget the CANDY!!!

I love Dick Clark!  I grew up watching him hosting American Bandstand and New Years Rockin' Eve.  My project is to celebrate the year American Bandstand started broadcasting, 1957.  Since it happens to be my husband's birth year,  I created a birthday card in honor of that year.  Maybe I'll be able to give it to him...... :-)
