Simply Betty Stamps - Back to School Emos - Preview Day 1

Woohoo!!!! The SBS team is so excited to give you a first look at the latest editions of the Back to School Emos! Since I'm GDTM for August, I get to join the girls in previewing these awesome images.  All your favorite My Kids Emo World characters are back, this time ready to rock in a new school year!

Most of you already guessed the theme, but not to worry...we still have a fun game for a chance to win some Back to School Emos!

Here are the details... Betty has uploaded two High School pictures of two DT Members.  Can you guess who they are? Now, for a chance to win all six Emo's on release day (which is this Sunday the 15th) all you have to do is upload your High School picture to the inlinkz below and give us your funniest High School moment you can remember! It doesn't have to be the regular school picture head shot either, it can be you during sports, with friends, lazing about on the couch, or whatever! Just make sure the picture was during your High School years!  Betty and the girls will be reading along.  The entry with the funnest story will be the winner! To be eligible you must provide a picture! Good luck to everyone and we can't wait to hear about your funniest moment in High School!

For preview day one I am giving you a peek at Christian and Lola.  Christian doesn't look too happy about returning to school.  He kinda has that "go eff yourself" look upon his face.  He might be a mope right now, but at least he is a cute one!  I'm sure his mood will change after he sees some of the cute girls in class! 
Christian is colored with Copic markers.  I used generic black, blue, and green cardstock.  The DPs are DCWV "grade school" mat stack.  I ripped one of the papers and used MS oozing goo border punch.

Next comes Lola.  Quite the opposite of Christian, she is actually HAPPY to be returning to school.  She can't wait to see her old friends, catch-up on all of the gossip, wear her new outfits, and of course check out all of the hot boys! 

Sorry about the pic.  My "natural" light bulb burnt out and the current bulb I'm using is casting a nasty tone upon everything.   The large view shows the color a little better so just click the image to enlarge.

Lola is colored with copics.  Other than my generic black cardstock, all papers are from DCWV "grade school" mat stack.  I used some ribbon that I received as a RAK as well as some metal brads for embellishment.

I hope you've enjoyed this little preview of the back to school emos.  Be sure to check back tomorrow for preview day 2 and again on Sunday the 15th for the back to school emo release and blog hop.  For more previews, be sure to stop over at the Simply Betty Stamps Blog and visit the rest of the DT.
