Bombshell Halloween Blog - With a Twist Please....

These monthly blog hops have been lots of fun. 
I have made a lot of new online friends and seen some great creations. 
 I want to thank Shannon for having enough confidence in me to do the job.
Right now I think that the Bombshell Blog is the coolest thing
that Bombshell Stamps is going to have going for it. 
One place as a snapshot for all that is going on with Bombshell Stamps. 

Don't have time to check the whole forum....dashing to work....
off to a Halloween party....just stop by the blog and keep updated.

I know...many of you are never seem to go away with style
 (hey wait that wasn't a compliment they were giving me.....) true...

So don't think that hops are gone forever. 
They will just be more quality not quantity....sometimes that IS better.

Well for this "Last for Now" hop I said ***Whatever***
As long as it is Halloween or Day of the Dead,
I don't care what it is.

Mine is...I know a shocker.... A Day of the Dead piece.
It's actually a matchbox shrine necklace.
I used a game piece from a loteria game
and plenty of Bombshell stamps on the outside.

If you missed any stops along the way
Here is the list:

Singing the Praises of Plaid & a layout of Better Living Through Scrapbooking

OK...I love stamping letters.  I have great big ones...teeny tiny ones, but I needed a great middle size set with upper and lower case letters.

BRAVO Plaid All Night Media Typewrite Alphabet.  It's perfect.  They are red rubber attached to foam.  The foam blocks are about 7/8" square for the upper case letters.

You can see them on the website HERE

I use them all the time now.

Here is a layout I used it on for Better Living Through Scrapbooking, the challenge was (probably obvious) scrap about our favorite color.  The great thing about the challenges there is that there are challenges within challenges.  Why not try this one out... CHECK IT OUT HERE
 OH....did I mention prizes????

3. Use rounded corners somewhere on your layout.
