Get Wild Blog Hop at Getting Cricky

The Getting Cricky Design Team is hopping again.  This time we are featuring some of our favorite little kiddo's and their super awesome projects.  We have been looking forward to this hop all month and our 'little ones' have been too!

If you've arrived here from Jenny and Lucy's page, you are in the right spot.  If you'd like to start at the beginning, please start at Getting Cricky with Kristal and her boys!

My grandest daughter, 5 year old Lexi, is my biggest and best crafting buddy.  Since I am her 'day care' provider, I have the privilege of crafting with her almost every day.   Here's our first project:

When Kristals new set "Beautiful Thoughts" arrived in the mail, I read all the stamps to Lexi.  When I read this sentiment "Today I will be happier than a bird with a french-fry", Lexi knew just what she wanted to make.  We used the Art Philosophy cartridge for the french fry box and the 3 Birds on Parade cartridge for the bird.  Lexi wanted to make her own bird (who looks remarkably like her pet duck "camo") and her own box of fries (marked with an "m", so we know where she eats).  She was so proud of how she colored in the lines and used Nana's sharp scissors to cut it out with. She wanted to make her's all herself, so it was "Hands off, Nana".  I made mine a bit different using some tulle and the new twine that Kristal is carrying in her store! I think the twine is definitely 'french fry' looking.

Lexi finished her container with a large chocolate chip cookie and gave it to her mom. Her mom is a corrections officer at our local jail, and Lexi said that her "Mom doesn't get a chance to smile much working with bad guys," so she wanted to give mom a smile.  I think it was PERFECT!

Beautiful thoughts
Lexi loves the little butterflies on this set and has added them to almost everything she's made lately.   Next up is another picture of her pet duck "camo".  She used all the little tiny fruit that came on the "Even More Food For Thought" stamp set.  She placed them all over her large acrylic block and used it to stamp her background paper.  I love, love, love this idea!

Lexi and I do a lot of paper piecings together.  I have a basket of misc. pieces that were left over from this and that - so she made her own paper piecing duck.  She was pretty proud of this picture.
Even More Food For Thought
Can you see all the little fruit in this set.  Perfect background material, don't you think?

Well, here is the rest of our lineup.  Please hop along and then check out the awesome giveaway Kristal is offering on her blog!!!   $50 worth of stamps!!!!

Next up is Gloria with her adorable grandchildren...Don't miss this!

Great to see wonderful young artwork. I've always appreciated the artwork like this. After all my daughter who is going to be 21 the end of this yr knows I have artwork from her when she was younger as well as what she has created recently.
