A summer fun blog hop!

Hey there dudes and dudettes, it's release day over at Simply Betty Stamps and to celebrate we are having a Summer Fun blog hop! You'll want to start at the SBS blog so if you are coming here from there, great... you are right on track!

So my card today features another pair of Emo Kids, this time Rio and Christian are hangin' loose and having fun on the beach. I just love how interactive these stamps are with each other... the way their eyes seem to be connecting totally led me to use this cheeky rub-on sentiment, LOL! And the nice thing about them being digi stamps is that I could play with the sizing a bit to get the proportions all to my liking within the scene.
Sure Rio is looking pretty cute in her purple bikini and fab sunglasses but I think Christian is stealing the show here... the transformation from slouchy skater dude to hunky surfer dude is pretty amazing, LOL! ;)

Now your next stop in the hop is to Debbie and you'll want to be sure and leave some love on hers and the rest of the DT blogs today because six commenters will win a single new release digi image and one person will win the Grand Prize of all six images... suh-weet! :)
The contest ends at 11:59 pm Eastern on Saturday July 17th, and the winners will be announced on the SBS blog on Sunday,July 18th.

Oh, and in addition to the six new Summer Fun My Kids Emo World digis, the original My Kids Emo World rubber stamps will also be released in digi form today, so all you digi lovers out there this is a big day for you! Plus there are going to be all sorts of new release specials so keep an eye out for those as well. :)

Alrighty, thanks for stopping by and have fun hopping... hope you don't get too much sand in your suit! ;)
