Setting Default Label Style- Civil 3d 2013

I am attempting to label top and bottom curb in my civil drawing.  I created a new label style in toolspace under points label styles. I created it with an expression to show a 6" curb. 

 

My new label look like this in the label style composer.

TC: 100.00

BC:  99.50

 

However, I'm unsure where to set it as the default label style when I start labeling top and bottom of curb.   At this time when I use the label spot elevation command I still get the default single line like shown below.

 

100.00

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Set the default here:

Settings Tab of Toolspace> Surface>Commands>AddSurfSpotElevLabel>Default Styles>Surface Spot Elevation Label Style>

So is this a Surface Spot Elevation or are you creating Points and using a Point label?

Thanks, I was creating my label in the point label style instead of the spot elevation label style.  Figured it out.
