Hello Kitty Happy Halloween Challenge with BBTB2!

 Good Morning my lovely followers and what Wonderful Fall weather we've been having here in Kentucky! Fall is one of my favorite times of year and living here in KY I actually get to see the seasons change. This week over at Bitten By The Bug 2 is my week to pick the challenge and since Halloween is in full swing I thought I would do something with a Halloween theme to it but I didn't want the Spooky, Scary, Gorey stuff I wanted something Cute and what's Cuter then Hello Kitty (you know it's my secret obsession, lol, well not so much now since I told you all, lol!) I picked the Hello Kitty dressed up like a Cat, kind of ironic isn't it, Hello Kitty dressed up like a Cat, ????? Anyhow if you don't have the Hello Kitty Cartridge you can use any Cat, just give it a Halloween theme please! You have two weeks to enter and it must be a NEW project and you can link it to the link on the BBTB2 Blog. Easy and you could win our Cute POW (Pick of the Week) Blinkie to add to your blog, along with brights of course! Well enough of the logistics, lets take a look at my Hello Kitty Happy Halloween Layout!
Well I did a 2 page layout as you can see. Now the papers I used are really bright and cheery but the pics don't do them justice so trust me they are almost neon bright colors.
 Here is a close up of the Left side of the layout. I cut the Hello Kitty Witch @ 6". The moon is cut @ 6" also with a shadow cut of 6 1/4" and I used the George Cartridge. The bat is cut a@ 3" and the saying is cut @ 3" also.
 Now the right side is the Star of the show, Hello Kitty Cat and she is cut @ 6" too. Now the Pumpkin is cut @ 5" and it is the card feature and I will use it as my journaling spot (you should know me by now and my hidden journaling spots.)
 Here is a close up of the Pumpkin Journal spot. I also used the Devine Swirls embossing folder (a true must have and go to folder if your new to embossing and wondering which folders to get!) Also a little piece of ribbon for a little handle on the side. 
 Now I had to add the Adorable little bat just because he's just too Darn Cute! I used the Swiss Dots folder to emboss him. (Another must have embossing folder)
 Here is a close up of the Precious Hello Kitty Witch with her fuzzy little pom pom on her hat.
And last but not least, the inspiration for the challenge this week over at BBTB2 . Isn't she the Cutest! Now the embossing folder I used on her bow and the other HK is a small butterfly folder that has a die with it that you cut, then emboss the butterfly but I like to use it for smaller pieces because the dots are really small and real close together.
Now the papers I used are some really old DCWV paper stack papers. I though I had bought a stack of Halloween papers last time we went to the city but I guess I didn't (see another sign of aging, forgetting things, lol) so I used some old ones  and they are simple but still very fun, pretty and perfect for this layout. I didn't add to much more. Some green Ric Rac, Purple Bling, a Pom Pom and some doodling dots and faux stitching with a Black Jelly Roll pen. I think I'm going to put this in a book I've been putting together for my Granddaughters with layouts I've done here and there (especially Hello Kitty) go in there. But you never know since I am a secret Hello Kitty obsessed fan I just may have to keep these, lol!
Well don't forget to go over to the BBTB2 Blog and check out what the amazing Design Team Gals created. I'm sure you'll be inspired, they are all Amazing!
Have a Great week and I sure hope you are enjoying the Fall weather. I just hope it stays around for a bit, I'm not ready for Winter!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,

This is sooo cute, Theresa! I wasn't a big fan of Hello Kitty for the first several years after she appeared on the scene but now I truly think she is adorable. The other layout just below this one is really pretty too. I love those wrought iron fence panels... very Goth looking. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your very sweet comment about my layout.
