C-47 Bombshell Layout

My family loves planes. Like, really loves planes. Me? I think they’re cool…but I really know nothing about them. I’m more of a car chick. We have a small airport by us that has an Air Show every year for Labor Day. Obviously, the special planes they show during that holiday weekend need to fly in earlier, so we decided to visit said airport for a look see.

We drove in at the perfect moment! Just as we got there, a huge C-47 was landing just across the way from us. It was big, and majestic. And this, coming from a car chick, is a big deal! We were able to get up close and personal with the plane (which happened to transport paratroopers back in it’s day), and Gene and Nix actually got to look inside of the bird!

On it’s side, as most planes have, was some awesome artwork…which is what inspired this layout!


Take a look at that beautiful bombshell! And of course, I colored in the Bombshell Stamps’ Angel to coordinate.


My photo looks a bit more faded then how it is in real life, but you get the idea! You can see Nix and my husband standing next to the plane right by my colored in Bombshell’s knees. You can click on any photo to see it bigger.


I love how this layout turned out. It didn’t need too much. The colors are perfect, the patterns are subtle, and I think I have just enough embellishments to keep it interesting without going overboard.

I also love using  Bombshells on my layouts! They really add so much to a page! And since you can color them however you want, it never really seems repetitive. You’ll see another Bombshell scrapbook page from me real soon! Have an inspiring day!
