Getting Cricky Pre-Hop Project Day 3

Good Morning!! Today is Day 3 of the Pre-hop projects over at Getting Cricky With K Andrew. The hop will start on Friday January 20th at 9p.m EST "U R So Sweet". If you missed yesterdays post you can find it HERE. Today I decided to to turn an ordinary brown paper bag into a work of art.

What I used:
K Andrew Design Art Stamps: Food For Thought
Brown Lunch Bag
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders Nestabilities Die: Labels Eight
Pink Ink: dollar store
We Are Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper:Scallop

Food For Thought Buy HERE

When I first saw the sentiment I wanted to use it in a different way then what first comes to mind. I could have made a card shaped like a sandwich but I wanted it to be different and then I thought what do you put your sandwich into for lunch? A paper bag!! I thought this would be really cute to send to school with your kids (mine isn't in school yet) or with your spouse to work ( don't have one of those YET) wow this sounds really sad:(  Anyways I will be able to keep this for when my daughter does go to school which is in 1 1/2 years. I wanted to give you other ways to use this sentiment and make you think outside the box.

Kristal has a total of 5 new stamp releases that are up for pre-order, It's Valentines, I Heart You, All in the Family, All About Animals and Key To My Heart which is a mini.  Key To My Heart you can get for free when you purchase the TWO Valentines Day sets or spent $25 or more in the store. To see pictures of the sets click HERE. But that's not all use the code "kristanfreeship" and you will get free shipping on your purchase!!
Please stop by all the other Design Teams blogs and see what they have made for today and also don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see what else I have come up with using this One Stamp Set!! If you can't see the inlink you can find a list of the other Design teams doing the week of pre-hop projects HERE.

Have A Great Day

God Bless
