Betty Burlesque 2 New Release Blog Hop!!!

Hi all hope you had a great Valentine's Day yesterday!!

On to the hop, now you should have reached me by way of Trish
if not hop on over to Simply B Stamps Blog to start at the beginning.
Introducing "Betty swinging on a star".  The background is a series of squares and circles layered
to resemble a quilt.  She is colored with copics.
Next we have "Betty sweet cake",Just a simple birthday card but really how sexy is she????

Warning: the next 2 projects are a little photo heavy!

 So my daughters birthday party is this Sunday and we have held back her presents till then
so Emily has not even seen this yet.  Here we have "Betty Shower Surprise " adorning a recycled 
and dressed up gift box.  I created a little bath set complete with brush and sprayer.  The 
Teddy was just to cute not to throw in the box as well.

 Box front with sentiment.

 When you open the window this is what you see.
Just a close up.  I colored Betty with copics.  I added lace, the flower, the cut out border and the patterned paper to dress up the packaging.  Bet she won't be throwing this box out :)

Last project featuring the last 3 Burlesques:
  "Betty Grand Piano", "Betty Pucker Up" and "Betty sexy legs".  
So I found this old wooden jewelry box at a thrift store for $1.00 here is the outside
 And the inside Not very pretty right, so I spray painted it white, light enough you can still
see that pattern from the original. Now to decorate.
I mentioned Emily's b-day above and here is another gift for her.
She takes piano lessons so it just had to be "Betty Grand Piano" colored again
with copics, of course for the cover.  Then lots  of ribbon, flowers and no forgetting
the Bling! So here's the cover and a closeup of Betty.

 On to the inside I added designer paper to all the backs, bottoms and drawer.  I chose
"Betty Pucker Up" for the top shelf as I wanted to add a mirror since my girl
loves her lip gloss. I added a butterfly and a charm that says Fly. 

                   Last, but not least comes the bottom of the box so now our last Betty of this set,
"Betty Sexy Legs"
The charm here says dance, especially with those legs right!  Not too much going on the bottom so
there is plenty of storage space so the charm and sentiment only.   

 Here is a closeup of sexy legs as well as the above shelf which has a dream charm.

   Here is the complete inside together.  The pink lace at the bottom outside goes all the way around
the box and it has a daisy motif that I then added half pearls to the center of each.  Last charm is a heart that says Beauty.  
I really hope you enjoyed my projects, but even more I hope you enjoyed the fun 
new "Betty Burlesque Line" 
Below you will find the complete hop list in case you are lost.  Have fun, but don't forget to 
leave a little Happy comment for each artist who is sharing with you today.  
Have a wonderful Friday to All!
