BSS Blog Hop: Bettie Page

Hi All!

If you're here for the Bombshell Stamps Blog Hop, you're in the right place! You should be coming from Suzie's blog.

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. Here are some photos of Ms. Page.

"I think that she was a remarkable lady, an iconic figure in pop culture who influenced sexuality, taste in fashion, someone who had a tremendous impact on our society." - Hugh Hefner. Betty was a pioneer in fetish modeling in the 1950's and has since become known as The Queen of Pin Ups.

I decided to go with sex appeal for this hop. And there's nothing sexier than a drop-dead gorgeous machine sparkling in the sun on a hot afternoon in the middle of the summer.

Four wheels can move your body, but two can move your heart. That's why I chose to use the "Vintage Motorcycle" set for this card.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think in the comment section below.

Now, onto the rest!
