Busy Beauties goes Burtonesque

Good Morning Friends,
Welcome to the Busy Beauties Burtonesque Blog Hop!!!
Not only do we have some marvelously macabre new images to share with
you today, but we also have some fun & funky friends joining us today:
The Burtonesque Dolls! Our new images are inspired by the Tim Burton
classic, "THE CORPSE BRIDE", and BBB illustrator Thomas Goins has
really outdone himself with these amazing images! We thought they
would be right up the Dolls' alley, so we invited them along for the
hop *and* are super excited to announce that Busy Beauties will be
sponsoring their challenge next week!

For my DT sample i used Emily~ the Bride image. Very much Burtonesque don't you think? This image along with some fabulous others are available now at the Busy Beauties Boutique. I used Catherine's fabulous sketch for the Busy Beauties Creation Station's current challenge. I also followed this week's challenge for the Burtonesque Dolls which was to use black flowers and skulls.

Here is the complete list of hop stops for today, and we have prizes
so fab, it's freaky! Be sure to hop along and leave lots of comment
love, because there are TWO Secret Beauties or Dolls along this
Burtonesque inspired hop… and TWO winners will be selected from their
blog comments to receive 5 (yep, FIVE) Busy Beauties images of his/her
choice! So whether you are in the mood to be beauty-ful or get funky,
we've got you covered.




Rachel~that's me














At the end of the hop, the new Busy Beauties Creation Station
is waiting for you. It's a sketch challenge provided by
PaperAddict Catherine, who is a member of both the Busy Beauties and
The Burtonesque Dolls DTs. We hope you'll play along! You have until
11:59 EDT on June 2nd to link your creation at the Creation Station.
In the meantime, we hope you'll have fun hopping and find lots of
other-worldly inspiration! Enjoy the show!
