Two Hops, One Post

You have arrived to Lady B's Blog.  Today I am in two awesome hops!
Why not hop around both?

First up is a special hop for a special lady.  Please give a huge Woot-Woot for Betty! 

Today is Betty's B-Day!!!

If you have arrived here from Barbara's blog, you are on the right track.  If not, click here to start at the beginning.  Rio, Betty's daughter, wanted to surprise Betty with a blog hop so a few of us past and present DT members pulled together to honor the Queen of Quirk on her special day.

Betty, you are one of the kindest, sweetest ladies I know.  Thank you so much for your friendship, your humor, and your understanding.  You are a beautiful woman with a loving soul and you deserve the best that life can offer! 

Here is my creation for Betty:

Other: Digi elements and papers from Oscraps
I chose a Halloween theme because that is Betty's favorite time of year.
Happy Birthday, B!

Your next stop on the hop is Jennifer's Blog.  Please hop along to see the wonderful creations that we've all made to show Betty how special she is, and don't forget to leave Betty some love at the Simply Betty Stamps Blog

Here is the hop list in case you get lost:
you are here --->Lady B <--- you are here

Hop Number Two
Next is the Member Blog Hop for the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  The hop goes live at 9am PST.  If you arrived from Ike's Blog, you are on the right track.  If not, click here to start at the beginning.
This month's theme is "A Little Steamy".  We were to use images, pieces, or parts that embrace the steampunk genre while also using a stamped image (digi or rubber).
 
Here is what I came up with:

I found the steampunk balloon online as a Freebie from BTFC.  The background is a photo I took and the lovely lass is none other than Jayne Jettpack from Kenny K.  Everything is colored and assembled in PSE8.  Your next stop on the hop is Susan's blog.
