April Hump Day Hop: Bettie Page

This month our Hump Day Hottie Alison set this challenge.


 I am SO stoked about this month's hop theme. And I think you will be too. This month's hop is HUGE! We have 18 amazing stops for you to take. And I am sure you are going to love every single one of them! Here's what I wrote in the forum.
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. 
You should have arrived here from Rachael (Etsy Ketsy's) blog.
