Bombshell Hump Day Hop- Homage to Bettie Page

Welcome to April's Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop!! You should have arrived here from Kelli's blog. If you didn't, head on back over the the Bombshell Stamps' Blog to start the hop there! We have a fun hop for you this month so you won't want to miss anything!!!!

Our resident Hump Day Hottie, Alison, gave us this challenge:

"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."

Here are a couple of photos of Bettie Page that I used as my inspiration for my project- Jungle Bettie:



To be honest, I hadn't heard of Bettie Page before this. My love of "bombshells" came from my love of World War II nose art. After seeing Bettie's hairstyle in these photos, I knew I had to use my beloved Bombshell Angel, and here is what I came up with...I hope you like it!

To continue on your Bettie Page journey, please head on over to Laura's blog. In case you get lost, here is the complete blog list for the hop:
