Getting Cricky "Back To School" Blog Hop

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

Can you believe it is already time for the big yellow bus to come and pick up the kiddos? It is crazy 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 Scrapbooking and Cards!!

If you've hopped along from Jessie 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



So I was feeling crafty and I made a couple projects for this hop. 

This is my first project. 
I made a art case for my son. I thought it would be a fun back to school gift for him to be able display. I did the front and back the same. The letters are cut from Mickey's Font and the art things are from Locker talk. The pencil and paint are cut at 2 1/2 and the crayon is cut at 3 1/2.

The other project I made is a notebook. It says "Aloha Lazy Days of Summer" and this is from the Splashtastic Summer Set. I used the Locker Talk Cricut Cart for the bus (cut at 5in) and the clouds and sun are from the Pooh and Friends Set. 

 With the School bus coming it also means that FALL is right around the corner. Kristal has some amazing fall sets you will want to add to your collection... (clicking on the previews will take you directly to the order page!!)...

 Sets like FALL-O-WEEN

Fun hop. Like the decorated box with all the goodies in it. My Daughter headed back to college this morn to start her Junior yr. I'm missing her already. She likes Owls so your Owl projects would be a big hit with her.
