Bombshell Boy Toy Bloghop 6-30-2010

Time for being's summer!
So what's the deal with a "Boy Toy" bloghop.
Well, it's dedicated to the men in our lives.
Doesn't have to be a boyfriend or husband..... maybe a soldier, a father, or just a masculine theme or card.

 Bombshell stamps have always been great for "manly" things, but now more than ever.
Just think about the new digi clothes stamps for the Bombshell Angel. The policeman, fireman, etc... they are GREAT for sending out that perfect card.
AND MAN...the new motorcycle stamps !!!

Here are a few projects that I used as examples.....

and who could forget...manly man bath salts! :lol:

Well this month I decided to help hubby help himself! (and me)
I have heard more than once....
"Hey, do you remember when I fixed _______  on my bike"
"Uh, no......"

So I made him a mini-file set-up for his "Man-Cave"
I am going to mount a file holder on the wall and add this.
I have added his registration, insurance, receipts, etc..
Now he can ....find it himself.
I used a 12 x 12 page protector, cut it down and put it around the file holder.
I used the COOL new motorcycle stamps I got and the Tattoo Font stamps to embellish it.
The corner "pinstriping" is from the Lady Luck set.

June's Prize Package is below:

Cool Tattoo Ink Pad!!

Let the Hopping Begin.

Great Challenge for June at Bombshell Stamps - Memory Boxes!

This is not my Bombshell project, but just an example of a Memory Box. 
I made this (many years ago) to hold special things from my father in law.
The outside has a handsome picture of him from WWII.
Inside it holds (the ones I have found in boxes) the cards he made me and my children for many years.
He suffered from Parkinson's Disease but he loved art and did his best to continue. 
Many of these items were made when he was in his 70s. 
They are sometimes shaky, but always filled with love. 
He was quite the upcycler - as the cut outs were made from cereal boxes.
The characters were of course my family and the scenes of our various homes.
When I open boxes from the attic (oh there are plenty) and I find one of these treasures,
I always add them in.

Chloe's 3 Roses

My daughter loves the new Bombshell stamps as much as me.  She asked today if she could color some stamps....of course!

So she colored Rose 3 different ways.  She has inspired me to use my colored pencils this weekend!
