Busy Beauties Blog Hop Today!

The Busy Beauties Boutique is celebrating the March release today with a blog hop of all new images and more surprises!  I would normally be in the blog hop rota, but due to a family emergency I am actually in Iowa, supporting my Busy Beauty sisters this way.  These ladies are not only amazingly talented, but are the most loving and supportive group I could ever wish for.  Ladies, I love you all! 

I am posting three cards I had ready to for the hop and encouraging you to pop on over to the incredibly talented Catherine for all the deets and where to start the hop.

For the first time, BBB is hosting a challenge along with the hop.  The challenge is "Go Green".  You will find the details on Carolyn's blog and all through the hop.  This is my "green" card in celebration of St. Patrick's Day this month.  I hope you all find your pot of gold!! 

Below is little Miss Attitude, I call her!  This image is based on one of Carolyn's nieces Savannah (could be my little niece, too), but I have a feeling a younger Carolyn is also reflected here!  (I say that with tons of love, my friend!) So I chose to color the hair dark and use lots of red and yellow, a salute to Carolyn's style.
"Braces are beautiful" so says Cheyenne, Carolyn's other niece.  She looks like a beautiful young lady, confidently flashing a very flashy smile!
So, if you like these images and haven't been over to the hop yet then git goin'!! You're missing out on the best!  Thanks for stopping by and I plan to be back on track in a couple of days.

God bless my beautiful Beauties sisters!

Hugs to you,
