Getting Cricky "In like a lion, out like a lamb" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "In like a Lion out lie a Lamb" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!

We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  The theme for this hop is "In like a lion out like a lamb".

If you've hopped along from Amanda's 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 today I made 2 12X12 layouts. I had so much putting them together. I wanted to make something that would fit the theme of out hop. I think my layouts say it all on how our weather here in California is. My first LO show that its a rainy day and it's porring! Like it should be this weekend. I tried to make the raincoat look just like my daughter. I dont have a pic on these layouts because  I haven't printed them out. Im sooo bad on doing that. I always print out like around 100 pic lol

On the second layout I made it look like a nice sunny day with all the beautiful flowers that are starting to bloom right now. We also have had summer kind of day in this time of month. Can you believe that! So our weather is a lil crazy and it changes quick. So I think that just fits perfect to our challenge.
