Bombshells July Challenge: Photo-Synthesis and Sketch challenge

I would like to welcome, a lot late I know, Ms July Alison!  Ok so maybe not welcome but say woooooooooo hoooooooooo  I freakin love you lady!!!!!!   You are awesome and I love your work!!!

Ok then, This month Ms. Alison has issued a challenge over on the Bombshell Forum called Photo-Synthesis.  Here is some info she gave us!:
Time to have fun with photos! There are three ways to play along with this challenge!

For the Scrapbookers: Make a layout featuring a photo(s) that have a pin-up feel to it. Maybe it's a picture of you and your car. Or your daughter wearing some vintage clothes. Or your niece in a pin-up style pose. Of course, you'll want to use some of your fabulous Bombshell Stamps on the page!

For the Card Makers: Make a photo card! Using a photo with a vintage feel, make a card that includes your Bombshell Stamps! Some examples include: a super cool Anniversary card for your other half featuring a haute pin-up style pic of you. Maybe a sweet shot of a hot rod for that car lover in your life.

For the Altered Artist: Make a fabulous creation using photos, altered art and your Bombshell Stamps! You can make a shadowbox with car memorablia and a Bombshell or two. You could decorate a frame covered with Bombshells that's housing a vintage photo.

Now I am also using this for Ms. Kathi's (Bombshell DT captain) July Sketch challenge!!!  She always makes the most awesome sketches!!!!  LOVE HER!

Now as you all know I am so not a scrapbooker but I actually took the plunge and made a page for this challenge.  Well sorta.  Every year my family has a reunion on or around the 4th of July.  My dad is the oldest of 12 with 11 still living and they have a big celebration every year!  While growing up I went every year but since getting married, having kids, and traveling all over with the military I have only been able to make it to a couple in the last 16 years. :(( Sad I know.  Hopefully now that the hubby is retiring we will be able to make it more often!  During this reunion we get all the brothers and sisters who are there to take a picture together.  Some years we have them all some we don't.  So I have decided to gather all the pictures that I can from the very first documented reunion until I can no longer gather pictures in the future and make a book of sorts.  The picture I used for this one is from 2009 and no I wasn't there but I did recently receive the picture in an email!  Fortunatly this one the first year in a long time that the remaining 11 were all there!  So it's the one I started with!  Now I just have to wait on the others! This year 2010, my children and I went to the reunion, and all 11 were there this time too!!! I was so excited, and wouldn't you know it the camera batter was dead from traveling and I didn't have the charger down there!!!!

Now I know that you can't read the writing( at least I don't think you can) but it just lists the names and says how it was the first time in a while that they were all together!
