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!
Can you believe it is already time for the big yellow bus to come and pick up the kiddos? It is cray how fast summer has gone by. So in honor of the kids (and adults) going back to school we are showing off our favorite back to school ideas with you! We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' Blogs and our very special Guest Designer, An'Jenic from AJ Scrpabooking and Cards!! 

If you've hopped along from Kristal 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 specil 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:

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

For my project, I'm featuring: 

"Owly Hoo Sentiments"
K Andrew Designs

This was made using papers from American Crafts: Craft Fair, Yellow baker's twine and Cricut: Sesame Street Seasons and tag from Cricut: Art Philosophy. I love the sentiment by K.Andrew. 

Side View. How cute is my owl paper. 

The back of my backpack!

"Food for Thought"
K Andrew Designs

For this card I used PTI Card Stock, Ribbon, Glitter Gems, Pattern Paper by: My Minds Eye: Fine & Dandy, and Cricut: Art Philosophy for the frame. sentiment: K.Andrew: Food for Thought. I just love that K.Andrew stamps are perfect for any occasion.

This card will go to my dear sister who has a few more class to become a certified Nurse.
