Simply Betty Back to School Emos Release Hop (whew! that was a mouthful)

It's that time of year again when stay at home moms rejoice, and
send their kiddos off to school after what seems like an eternity of a
summer vacation.
Well that, and Simply Betty Stamps is releasing a new set of Emo kids images
with a fun back to school theme!

If you have arrived from Debbie's blog then you are on the right path.
If not, you might want to start at the beginning of the hop at the SBS blog.
There are prizes to be won and she has all the details for you there.

I am really diggin' these new images. Very cute and fun and versatile.
First up is my favorite from this release, Miller.
The look on his face is great!
I'm sure my son will be making a similar face on the first day
of middle school next week.
So much fun to color!
I really didn't want to distract from the image too much so I left the card
a bit sparse in the embellishment department.
Besides, I didn't want to cover up that cool DP from Making Memories.

Next we have the lovely bubbly, Rio.
 I flipped her digitally so she is going in the other direction.
I had another idea for this image, but changed gears and came up with this.
I just can't stress how much fun these kids are to color!
I decided to keep the hair colors fun and unconventional.
They are Emo kids after all.

Lastly, we have the brooding and cool, Christian.
I really like his blue hair. I wish I had blue hair.
Well, not like little old lady blue hair, but cool blue like Christian.

That's it for me!
Next up on the hop is the uber talented, Jen with something stunning, I'm sure.

Leave comments along the way to win some of the new images, and stop by
the Simply Betty blog and website for all the details and coupon codes for all 
the great sales she is having right now!
