Bombshell Stamps - September Bloghop -Time for Geography.

Kids with their new colored pencils and cute backpacks remind me
of how much I miss school….


But it did inspire this month’s blog hop.
The theme for this month is Geography: Travel, foreign lands, exotic colors, transportation

My Bombshell decided to go for a motorcycle ride....for a good cause this month.
Volunteering at Let There Be Mom, and a little bit of a scare for me last month, got me thinking.

So she off on a cross-country ride for the cure!

This month instead of posting the entire bloghop list, we are just giving you the next link.

So please visit Kathi next.
Don't forget to leave comments along the way
so that you have a chance at
winning this month's prize.
Also stop by the forum and join a challenge!

Try the Sketch Challenge
or Miss September's Rise To The Occasion Challenge.

If you want a hint about next month's hop...
the word is.....

Feeling a little "W"itchy

These couple of pages in my art journal feature Gauche Alchemy and Bombshell stamps products.
The journaling reads:
This broom is not for sweeping and this pot is not for cooking your dinner. 

We all know that Bombshell witches have better things to do.

It is an art journal without the purpose of being neat and beautiful.

Bombshell Stamps - The New Design Team

First off I want to say how excited and privileged I am
to be part of the Design Team at Bombshell Stamps again.
Bombshell Stamps is THE coolest stamp company.
I had a few stamps before then, but Bombshell got me addicted
(wait...maybe I should be mad at Bombshell......)

There are some other wonderful returning Bombshells, a few new faces.
Check them out HERE.

Then go to the Bombshell forum and see the new challenges for September. 
Think about joining in, and winning some prizes also!
