her name is rio and she dances on the sand...

Sorry, folks, I'm a child of the 80's...

I was recently blessed to work with Betty Robert's a.k.a. Ms. Betty Boo's (as we affectionately call her at The Pink Elephant) cool & creative stamp creations. The one I chose was Rio. Rio is Betty's daughter (such a lucky girl). Betty immortalized her in ink!

I'm a bit late (I promise, I have an excuse), but here's my take on The Pink Elephant's newest sketch challenge with Simply Betty Stamps. If you likey, her images will be available June 1st!!! I tell you, I'm surrounded by total talent!




{paper}Basic Grey (I picked it up just for you Betty Boo!), Girl's Paperie (sorry, I can't help myself!!!); Scenic Route (brown edge); JoAnne's (purple paper)
{gems} Darice
{scissors} ProvoCraft
{pencils} Staendler & Sargent Art

Yes, my dear dh was big on helping me out once again with the colouring. I even inspired him to do one of our Bella. I'll have to show that to you at another time.

Your DH is a very crafty guy huh? Nice coloring. My hubby only enjoys to handling rub-ons & he calls crop-a-dile... Weapon of mass destruction. LOL!!
