Surprise Hop for Kristal Andrew!!

Hello Diva's, 
Welcome to the “Getting Cricky With It” Surprise Blog Hop for Kristal!!!

Today the Design Team is bringing you some very special projects created for our wonderful and amazing leader Kristal! Our term is almost over and we wanted to show her just how much we appreciate ALL that she has done for us this term. The projects that we will be sharing with you will also be sent to Kristal. We encourage ALL of her fans to join in on the fun as well! Be sure to add your card/project to the link below and then be sure to mail it off to her!

If you've hopped along from JoAnn'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:

For My Project I decided to make a Gift Card Holder to Hold a Starbucks Gift Card. I know Kristal loves giving these out as prizes so I thought Hey Why not Give her one for a Change!!

I used the Coffee & Tea For You and Me Stamp Set

Kristal Thank You for All You Do for us! Thank You for Being an AWESOME DT Leader, Thank You for just being a Breath of Fresh Air and a Word of Encouragement whenever we need it! May GOD continue to Bless You and the Boys and I speak nothing but Success and Joy over your Life!

Happy Birthday Crew Member 5!!

Hey Diva's! How has your day been thus far? Mine has been pretty good, I started my New Life today of Healthy Living and it is Going Well! Since I am starting NEW I wanted to let you all know that I am going to change things up a bit around here, Even though I LOVE LOVE LOVE Crafting that is not the Only thing about me that I Love and I don't want to get stuck in a Crafty Box/Blog. So from here on out I will not only be Blogging about Crafty Stuff I will also be blogging about All kinds of things (Family, Fashion, Restaurants, Disney).

So let's start with today as it is Crew Member 5's 2nd Birthday YIPPEEE! This little Lady has brought so much Joy to Our family I'm telling You! She keeps us ALL on our toes and with her around there is NEVER a Dull Moment! I wanted to share just a few pics of #5 through these past 2yrs.
She was a preemie weighing in @ 5lbs 8oz.She came a Month Early on Super Bowl Sunday! We always say she didn't want to miss out on the Party lol!

Her 1st Professional Pictures (1mth old)

She was always so ALERT! (3mts)

1st trip to the Beach she did Really Well! (6mts)

She Loved her Sink Baths lol

"Look @ my face Mom, ok Really Stop taking Pics!"

Easter Sunday '11 (14mts)

Going to Pick Daddy Up, He had been stationed in Iraq since she was about 5mts. (16mts) 

Beach Babe (18mts)

Family Pictures Nov '11 (21mts)

Because we moved and we don't know Alot of people we are really undecided on having a party for her! It is very disappointing because All 5 of my children have had a 2yr old Birthday Party. I'm leaning to going ahead and giving her one next weekend. Because Honestly I really don't think I would be able to live w/ myself if I didn't (Even though I know she could Care Less) lol. But anyway Happy Birthday to my little Bundle of Cuteness and Joy I love you #5!!!

Do you guys think I should just have her party next weekend or Not even worry about it Altogether? I would love to hear your comments!

Be Blessed, and Remember,
~Keep GOD 1st in Everything!~
