The Digi Bells Blog Hop, GDT Call, and Digi Release

Greetings my Friends, and Welcome to this months Elisabeth Bell Digi release and Digi Bells Blog Hop.

If you've arrived here from Michele's Blog Then you are in the right place, if you've stumbled here all on your own, then why not head on over to The Digi Bells Blog, and start the hop off right?

Lets Welcome
"Sweet Tooth"  as well as Elisabeths fun accessory digi called "Summer Window"
to the Elisabeth Bell Digi Collection

Oh yes your seeing right.. WE HAVE 2 new images this month!!!


Believe it or not, it was me who mentioned an old fashioned Gum Ball machine to Elisabeth, and wouldn't you know, THIS adorable little girl appears.....
I tell you, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this little Sweet Tooth.

I just couldn't help myself, I HAD to have paper that looked like gumballs.  Unfortunately I didn't have anything like that.  So what's a girl to do?  I made a sheet of paper just filled with all kinds of circles.  Believe it or not, I brought this piece of cardstock to work with me, and thought that I would find some time to color in random "gumballs" throughout the day. 
But guess what?  A friend/co-worker offered to color it for me, while I worked on other things.
Without her, I probably would have been crazy trying to get things done.
Sooooo, a special thanks to Jackie for coloring my Gumball Paper!  =)

This month we also have several chances to win this SWEET digi. There will be 3 winners. Two (2) different blogs from the hop list will pick one winner from the comments left. 
for better chances to win!!
