A New Year, a new image, and a new start!

Well hello there personal blog!  I have missed you so!  

It has been a while since I have posted here, I am always so busy busy with my business blog that I give this one little or no love at all!  Well that is going to change in this year!  I have many resolutions, and one of them is to scrap, stamp, and craft just for me, just for fun!  Of course doing my own images is fun, but I got to the point where I was starting to feel icky about my own stuff cause I wanted to do other stuff.... you know what I mean?

Okay, enough of that let's get onto the fun stuff!  Today I am previewing a brand spankin' new cutie!  

Box of Chocolates Miller, from our very first new line for 2012!  Wow can you believe how fast 2011 went!?  Box of Chocolates Miller is from our new line to be released Friday!  This line is called Teen Scene Steampunk Valentine.  I promise you will fall in LOVE with these cuties!  Betty, Christian, Rio, Lola, and London will follow in the days to come and they are ca-yute!

I was in a very black and white and pink mood, so I colored Miller in using 12 colors only (yeah I know ONLY huh, hee hee): 
N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, RV04, RV06, RV09

I just thought these colors appropriate for the theme, and yet not too girly for a masculine image.  Makes me think of way back when you could buy those special markers that you could color on your black and white pictures to add just a touch of color.  I think they were Zig pens, gosh I don't remember it was when Scrapbooking was making it's way into the crafting world and all kind of new fun stuff was being invented!  Not that they don't continue to invent fun stuff of course!

Oh and I am also entering this into the ColourQ challenge #117.  It was pure luck that they happen to be challenging peeps to use basic black and white and any one color!  I thought my card fit in perfectly!

I used papers from my stash, that I have been hoarding for a year as it is Echo Park Be Mine Collection, their 2011 Valentine line.  I just love the color combo on this paper.  Of course I love anything with black and pink in it no matter what, but this paper is really elegant and pretty.

I hope you like my Box of Chocolates Miller, he will be available in a kit along with the other five stamps and cards to come on Friday January 6th!  See you all tomorrow for preview day 2 of our new Teen Scene Valentine Steampunks!

Oh and please head on over to SBS blog to check out my DT gal's awesome, awesome projects with Box of Chocolates Miller!  They have really outdone themselves!
