BBTB2 Challenge-It's A Hello Kitty Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone and it's another glorious Monday and with Monday's it's another Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge! This week it's our fearless leader Heather's pick of the challenge and Heather picked Hello Kitty (yippee)!  Okay shhhhhhh, I have to share a little secret with you all.............................................................

 I Love Hello Kitty! I've Loved Hello Kitty since it first made it's debut back in the 70's, yep I remember it back then, I was in High school and had a few things (my secret obsession back then, Hello Kitty and Ziggy, lol), but didn't really get into it till my Daughter was born in 1984. She had so many little Hello Kitty goodies (I sure wish I would have saved that stuff, my Grand Daughter's like it too now!) That's when I remember the stores opening in the malls, how fun was that! Everything Hello Kitty! And yes they still have them and Hello Kitty also has a Buddy named Keroppi, a adorable little Froggie, so you can be sure that Sis even had a few of Hello Kitties little buddies Keroppi to keep her company, with having the nickname Treefrog you can bet I had to have a few of those little buddies, lol! Well anyway enough of the trip down memory lane, (giggle) on to the challenge!   
Heather picked the Hello Kitty on page 74. And since I haven't done a layout in awhile I thought this would be a perfect time. I am very happy with how this turned out, pretty simple but nice and bright and cheery. I also added the Tree on pg. 76 with an oval cut out in the tree from George and Basic Shapes to the center of the tree to add a picture. And the little tiny Christmas lights are some that I bought years ago and just added them to the tree for a little unexpected surprise. And speaking of surprises..........................  
The little present on Pg. 42 is my journaling box! You all know I have my little hiding places for my journaling like HERE, HERE or HERE to show you a few. It is also the first time I used the glitter paper and cut it on my Cricut and I have to say I will be looking for the glittered papers from now on, I loved it and it cut like Butta, lol! I added a few rhinestones to the front of the Santa suit and sparkled up the Santa hat with some stickles to give it a little bling. I also used a new punch of mine I just recently purchased which is the big EK Success punch, the large scallops with circles and I absolutely love it! Some sparkly ribbon on the mats and it was good to go. I'll have to dig out some of my Daughters' old Christmas pics to add or have her take a few of the Grand daughter's to add on the photo mats.
Well Thanks for stopping by and remember if you don't have the Hello Kitty Cartridge you can use ANY cart that has a Santa on it. Link up to the BBTB2 blog with Mr. Linky and you may be the next winner of the BBTB2 Winner's Blinkie to display proudly on your blog. Well have a wonderful week, it's Thanksgiving week and hope everyone has a Very Blessed week with Family and Friends! 

((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa
