Hello Kitty Weekend Blog Hop (Blog Candy!)


Hello everyone and welcome to the Hello Kitty Blog Hop! We have lots of FABULOUS projects and prizes for you today, so make sure you make a stop on every blog! This hop is a 2 day hop, so you have plenty of time to get through all of the blogs. If you've arrived here from Emily's blog you're on the right track! If you're stopping by my blog today and want to start at the beginning, please visit Emily's blog (link http://www.createserendipity.net/






On a recent trip to an LSS, I came across this pretty floral patterned paper by one of my all-time favorite lines:  Doodlebug!  Now, I know this paper seems more suited for the spring season, but it was just calling my name! LOL! I actually walked away from it and then went back.  I just couldn't walk out of the store without at least a sheet or two of this paper.  So, of course, I just had to use it for my Hello Kitty project. 


I had to go with the pink and purple combo.  I think it's such a girly color combination.  I cut HK out of the Cricut HK Greetings cart at 3 inches.  I used some pink and purple cardstock and embossed both to add texture.  I wanted to bling things up, so I added some pink crystal flowers that I've had in my stash for a loooong time!  I also added some round bling from SU! to some of the flower centers.  The final touch was some pretty pink ribbon.
