  Hot Air Balloon Canvas

Pin It
Today I want to share another project I made when I attended the most amazing classes at Let's Get Creative taught by Suzy West. They were held at the Prima Outlet in Chino, California. I learned some (new to me) techniques and created some gorgeous layouts and this amazing canvas. 




 This 12x12 canvas includes distressing, both in inking and sanding. It is made using mostly Prima products. And it's going to look amazing on my wall. 
 
 

I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Disney Blog Hop for Rett Syndrome Awareness

Pin It
 
 
Happy Saturday
and 
Welcome to this year's Blog Hop for...
 
Rett Syndrome Awareness
 
In this hop we will be showing you many Disney themed projects while sharing with you about
Rett Syndrome.
If you have just stopped by my blog to visit with me, thank you and welcome, but please start at the beginning of the hop with our
Hostess, Robin from
Create-A-Latte.
We would not want you to miss any of these wonderful projects.

So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.
 
 October is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month, so I wanted to help get the word out and what better way to do that than with a blog hop.
  
Rett Syndrome strikes without warning. A girl with Rett Syndrome usually starts out as a happy and healthy baby. Then something goes terribly wrong. She loses the ability to speak, she can't use her hands to play with toys, or to even feed herself, and she may lose the ability to walk. 
Despite their physical disabilities, girls with Rett Syndrome are believed to be functioning mentally at a much higher level than previously thought.   
Rett Syndrome is caused by a mutation of the MECP2  gene on the X chromosome.  
Rett Syndrome is found in all racial and ethnic groups throughout the world, and in every socioeconomic class.  
Rett  Syndrome affects in 15,000 female births.  

*Symptoms of Rett Syndrome...

Rett Syndrome is a genetic neurological disorder that affects girls between 6 and 18 months of age. This regressive disease leads to lifelong handicaps, including loss of speech and voluntary muscle control, and is often misdiagnosed as Cerebral Palsy or Autism. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and almost always include...
*Developmental Regression or Plateau
*Near constant hand clasping or wringing
*Severe communication impairment
*Breathing problems
*Digestive issues
*Floppy arms and legs
*If able to walk, then with a shaky, unsteady gait, or toe-walking. But most do end up using a wheelchair for the most part.
*Scoliosis
*Seizures
*Slowing head growth
*Abnormal sleep patterns
*Transient loss of social engagement
*Poor circulation that can lead to cold and bluish arms and legs
*Anxiety
  
Many individuals with Rett Syndrome live well into adulthood, although there are some that do not get that chance and end up losing their battle to Rett Syndrome at a very early age.
Most people including Doctors are not aware of Rett Syndrome, so, please help me get the word out about Rett Syndrome and hopefully the more that know the faster we can help in finding a cure.

  Monster Mash Showcase

Pin It
Thanks so much to everyone who had a chance to come by and
party with us over the weekend at the Monster Mash Blog Hop.
 
 
If you didn't join us you missed the best hop ever! It was full of the most awesome Halloween projects. We had everything from cards to layout, home d├ęcor to treats.
 
I always find it interesting that some people will end up with less comments than others who are in the same hop. I'm not sure why this happens but this month I decided to start my Showcase which I will do sometime the week following my big blog hops I host. I will showcase projects that I feel are deserving of more attention or that I just can't get enough of. Sometimes we have personal issues happen and bloggers drop out at the last minute. Maybe you will see some of their projects too.
 
The projects chosen in no way reflect my favoritism over one person or another ( I am not like that at all). And are not based on talents in any way. I believe everyone is an artist and all projects are amazing! So hopefully we can all be happy and excited for those that are showcased.
 
So without further ado...here are this month's picks.
If you missed them the first time around, be sure to send them some love now.

I have another delightfully spooky SVG file from Creative Kuts to share with you today.


Okay I know what you are thinking, that this isn't spooky at all! But look at that spooky spider and those webs! Yikes!! LOL! I just love the web frames and borders.



I love adding pop dots and inking to make my die cuts look more dimensional.  This layout has so much great texture. I know it's hard to tell from the photos.


And I had to include a close up of the stars! This ghost and cat are all dressed up and ready for some serious Trick or Treats. I added Peachy Keen faces to them but this file does come with paper faces as well.


Thanks so much for checking out my project! I hope you have an amazing time going through day 2 of our projects! These ladies worked hard!!

Up next is the lovely and talented Alicia with Golden Goddess Designs!


Here is our complete line up for day #2 in case you get lost along the way:
