Some Like it HOT!!!!

Hello Lovelies,
Welcome to the August edition of the Bombshell Blog Hop!  This month we are having a combined hop with the girls over at Gauche Alchemy!!!  Totally cool!  Our theme this month is Some like it Hot, Hot, Hot.  We got our inspiration from the move Some Like it Hot, and from the song, Hot, Hot, Hot!  I have to admit, I had not seen the movie, but had heard the song so I was going to go with that in the beginning, then decided to look up the movie to see what I could see! Once I saw pictures of the movie poster you could have blown me away with a feather, can you say ga ga over it!!!, I totally love black and white movies, pictures, anything really.  So I ran with it.  Now we all know that Marilyn is famous for her white dress image, among other things, but I just couldn't do it.  I couldn't leave it white, no matter how hard I tried, so I thought what color do you think of when you think hot.....ummmmmmmmmmm  RED so that's where I went.  The whole card is shades of gray with a red pop of the clothing!  I think Marilyn would have loved it!

Ok Ok so they are crappy pictures.  I realized when I started to take them earlier, that the camera battery was dead and by the time it charged, the sun was gone, and the house lighting ummmm SUCKED!!!  You get the meaning of the project anyway, right?

Check this out!

Now hop on over to my lovely friends blogs to continue your journey on the awesome combined hop!

Kelli - she is HOT!! I love her red "bunny" suit highlighted and popped out by the delicious shades of grey you chose!! The lighting in the first pic is actually really cool and shadowy giving it that vintage and sultry vibe.

Awesome creation hon!!

It makes me wonder if there is a way for the bombshell stamps to be pose-a-ble? CanCan kick, etc. Any ways I like your card Kelli and the fact that you couldn't keep from coloring it.

Black and White and RED!! Nothing wrong with that lady! It's pretty much all I wore in high school.

I know how you feel re: lighting. My house is lit by fluorescent light. Baah. ;(
