Hippity-Hop...FIRST STOP!

I can't believe how quickly this day arrived! Welcome to your first stop on the Simply Betty Stamps Release Party Blog Hop! If you've just popped in, we are kicking off the Grand Opening of Simply Betty Stamps today, by featuring the "My Kids Emo World" line on each of the SBS Design Team members' blogs! The best part? FREE STAMPS!
By participating in today's Blog Hop,leaving a comment on each of the SBS DT blogs, you will be entered for a chnace to win ALL 6 of the Emo Kids stamps! Each stamp will come to you in deeply-eteched red rubber, skill sawed and mounted on EZ-Mount cushion. I am super impressed with the quality my friends, and I have thousands of stamps!
Purchased a pre-order stamp, or two, or all 6? Not to worry...if your name is chosen to win, your money will be refunded for any/all stamps you purchased, and you too, will recieve all 6 images for FREE! :)
So, let's get this party started...
I'd like to present to you,the whole gang of Emo kids, confidently struttin' their stuff on a white, Shrinky Dink bracelet!

I colored each image in using prisma markers, scanned in the original images and printed them out onto white Shrinky Dink material for InkJet Printers. After each image was cut out, I punched a 1/8" hole on their tops and shrunk 'em down in my oven at 300 degrees for 3 minutes.
When they little darlings were done cooling, I used a variety of Blue Moon beads and findings to create this bracelet for Betty! I thought this would be the perfect way to commemorate her company's beginning! Here are a few close-ups:





I know that the projects the other members have in store have my own creative juices flowing, so leave a comment here, and then hop on over to your next stop in the hop, Amy's blog:

Amy: A Thousand Sheets of Paper

Good luck to you all and thank you so much for celebrating with us, today! Hip-Hop Hooray!
Hugs and HOOTS,
<3 Alicia
