Flaunt It Fridays Hello Kitty Blog Hop

It's finally here! My first project for the DT for Flaunt It Fridays and we are doing a blog hop!! I am soooo
excited!!! Now if you arrived here from Pam's blog then you are in the right place. Her projects are just awesome aren't they?!  But if you just happened up by chance, go here and start from the beginning. You won't want to miss any of the fantastic creations the DT has made to inspire you! Now if you do get lost, check at the bottom of my post and you'll find a list of all the blogs in the hop. We have 32 DT stops! So you have 3 days to complete the hop. January 7-10!! For this challenge we were asked to 'Flaunt' Hello Kitty with Airplane on page 65 from the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge. Those that don't have this cart were to use similar cuts from other cartridges. The other project we can use any cut from the cart that we want. I did a layout with Kitty in the plane. I laid everything out in my Gypsy Girl. I cut Kitty in the plane and all the layers at 7 inches. I hid stuff from different cuts so I could get the colors that I wanted. The cloud is also from HKG page 66 and I cut it at 4 inches. It's kinda hard to see the cloud because it blends in. I did do some inking around it. It's in the top right hand corner shere that big space of white is. That is where I will put a photo. The sentiment on my layout is computer generated and then punched out with a EK punch. 'Come Fly Away With Me'  The cloud bg cardstock is from American Crafts-Everyday Howdy.
I used Hello Kitty with the balloons(pg. 39) for my card which is my other project. I also laid it out in my Gypsy Girl. Everything was cut at 6 1/2 inches. I hid balloons so I could have different colors. Then I used Glossy Accents to give them some shine. Then I cut Happy Birthday from HKG also(pg. 38) at 2.19 inches. The bg cardstock is from MS Playful Blue and Green Paper Pad. One of our Granddaughters is having a birthday this month so this card will be for her.
I sure hope ya'll like my layout and card!
Thank you for taking the time to hop along with us for the Flaunt It Friday's Hello Kitty Blog Hop. We can't wait to see how you 'Flaunt' your Hello Kitty this week at Flaunt It Fridays
The next stop on the hop is Sheandra Hop over and see what she has in store for you! I know it is some awesome wonderfulness!!

Hi Sharon,

I see around the other blogs so much, it's nice to visit you here to see your wonderful creations!!! :) You did a great job flaunting the Hello Kitty! That cloud paper is perfect! I like the font, too (especially the way you did it all in caps). I never think to use that cartridge for the font (maybe now that I have a Gypsy, it'll be easier to have everything right at my fingertips). ;)

Thank you so much for sharing and for the chance to win,
