Getting Cricky Back to School Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

It is that time of year going back to school. So that is the theme of our Getting Cricky blog hop this month.  If you are just joining in make sure to head to Getting Cricky and start the hop We are so pleased to have An 'Jenic from AJ's Scrapbooking and Cards. Otherwise if you are joining me from the FABULOUS Shawn, thanks for stopping by. :)

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:
  So, Now onto my project.


I got a pencil box at walgreens. I they were on sale for $.39. I wrapped paper 6.5x9 around it and just creased when I got to the edges. I cut the little paper and pencil from Simply Charmed they were 2.59 inches on the gypsy.  I hid the faces and added some peachy keen faces.  I wrapped some K Andrews Design Twine around it and added the sentiment.  It is from Positive thoughts.  I had so many ideas, I also thought of using Attitude is everything :)
