14 April 2010


April is Autism Awareness Month. Some of you know exactly how autism has touched my life, and how close to my heart the subject is. So I was thrilled to participate in some very special online challenges this week.

# The Town Scrapper ~ Some of the Scrapettes, starting with this gorgeous lady, are donating $1 per challenge entry
# Scrap it Forward ~ Raising funds for Autism Speaks (USA)

Please visit them to read more about what the very generous teams at these sites are doing.

I'm also entering my card at:
# Design Dollies ~ Colour challenge ~ black, yellow, pink
# Papertake Weekly ~ Cutie Pie ~ This is the cutest stamp I own (Snag 'Em 'Chick')

I also used: Coredinations cardstock, Basic Grey and Creative Imaginations papers, Stampin' Up! ribbon, Making Memories and Carolee's Creations alphabet stickers.  The puzzle pieces are from a children's craft kit.
