Christmas Emos Blog Hop with Simply Betty Stamps!

Welcome to the Simply Betty Stamps Christmas Emos Blog Hop & Release!

It's here, it's here! Christmas Emos Blog Hop and release day! Woot! If you came here by way of the fabulous Lady B you're right on track...if her post wasn't up yet she was having computer problems last night, so you might need to check back!  If you came by just to say hello (HI!), be sure to start at the Simply Betty Stamps Blog to find out what you need to do in order to win one of SIX fantastic prizes!  All these fun Christmas Emos are now in stock! But that's not all!  Echo Park Everybody Loves Christmas has also arrived! Check out the online store for all the goodies! These papers are going to look great with the new Christmas Emos!

The Christmas Emos are now available in both digi and rubber... but hurry!  The digi versions will only be available for a very limited time! Grab 'em while you can!

My first sample for you uses the adorable Elfin' Miller.  How upset is he over his outfit?  I had the perfect project too...I do hope you can read the journaling on my layout!  :O)  I paper pieced Miller's outfit to match the paper...the rest is colored with Photoshop CS2.
The second image used is Merry Betty.  What a babe!  She's happily on her way to deliver her gifts.  This is at my sister-in-law's house last year...never mind the photo of me.  Wow!  I do have a couple other layouts in the works, but it got pretty late, so I'll save those for later.  :O)

My last project for you today is a card using Prezzies for Lola.  This comes with Lola, the 2 presents you see and a really cute little holly bat friend (not pictured).  I love her so much!  Maybe because I was actually able to color some decent black hair (thanks Jen)!  The polka dot paper is the back of the argyle Halloween paper from Echo Park.  I wanted to use the skull paper, so what better to use than one that came with it, right?  I just colored 2/3 of the dots with hot pink and lime green.  I colored the twine to match too.  Damn, I'm clever!  LOL!  I used Copics, Echo Park DP, card stock and twine from stash, Stickles, nesties, CB snowflake embossing folder, Prismacolor pencils, OMS, pop dots, Photoshop, current Mojo Monday sketch.

Before I leave you I wanted to be sure you knew that there is a new challenge up over on the Simply Betty Challenges Blog!  Be sure to head over to the SBS Store too...there are some new steampunk style digis for you to drool over...and buy, of course!  :O)

I hope you enjoyed my it's time for you to scoot along to the fabulous blog of Linda!  Don't forget to leave some love for each of the DT members along the way!

Here is the full list in case you get lost:
