"Back to School" Getting Cricky Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Back to School" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' Blogs.

Throughout the hop we'll be showing what we love about....  Back to School!!  From First Day of School Pics to Lunch box ideas. We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!  Sooooo, let's get hopping...

If you've hopped along from Diana's Blog , then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...

Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!

K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs:

Kristal's stamp sets are perfect for cards, layouts, and so much more...

For my project, I'm featuring the Of Mice & Lil Men:

Back to School have probably started for many. Our students returned to school last week. Yup! Can you believe it! The first week of August was the beginning of the school year! What happened to starting school after Labor Day! LOL Well, the worst is in Southern California because we have been getting some really hot weather which makes it hard for the students to go outside and play at recess. So for this event, I wanted to make a card for one of the teachers I work with. She is an incredible teacher. I know she will like it.

 For the apple I added an Action Wobble! I thought it would make the card fun.
 I used some of Kristal's Baker Twine for the perfect touch to the card with some Caramel Apples.

Thank you for stopping by and hope to take a look at K. Andrew Designs Stamps for all your fabulous sentiments that can be used on all sorts of amazing projects.

Now you can hop on over to your next stop: Jennie
