Bombshell Hump Day Hop!!!


Hello Lovelies, it is time for the Bombshell Hump Day hop and this month our Hump Day Hottie Alison has decreed that we pay homage to Bettie Page!  The ultimate Bombshell!  Here is what Ms. Alison had to say about the hop this month!

Greetings Bombshell Fans! I am so excited about April's blog hop. I know, I know...I say that for all of the hops...but this month, I think it's going to really be a killer hop!
On April 22, 1923, a star was born. A star that we all know. A star that, without her, Bombshell Stamps may not even exist (if I may be so presumptuous). Who is it? None other than Bettie Page. What better month to pay homage to the Pin-Up Queen herself than the month of her birth? So for this hop, I want you to give Ms. Page some love. Make a project, any type of project, using her as inspiration. There are thousands of images to view, lots of quotes she has said, and others have said about her. Want some inspiration right now?

This is Bettie Page's official site: http://www.bettiepage.com/index.html

I would have loved to have been able to photograph her! 
Anyway here is my card that I made inspired by the top photo.

I love the Cherry Bomb set from Bombshell there is just something about the way she is sitting that I love!  I used the Smeared and Smudged card sketch for this month as my layout for this card.  I hope you enjoy and remember to hop and see what everyone else has made and leave everyone some love for your chance at some awesome prizes this month!
