Disney Blog Hop

Welcome to the First Annual Blog Hop for...


Rett Syndrome Awareness

Your first stop should have been at Robin Lane's Blog, if you did not start there please go back to the beginning...

What is Rett Syndrome? Rett Syndrome is a devastating neurologic developmental disorder that occurs almost exclusively in girls. It is usually 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 1 in 15,000 female births. 

Early developmental milestones appear normal, but between 6-18 months of age, there is a delay or regression in development, particularly affecting speech, hand skills and coordination. A hallmark of Rett Syndrome is the repetitive hand movements that may include seizures, irregular breathing, swallowing difficulties, and curvature of the spine. Many individuals with Rett Syndrome live well into adulthood.
There is currently no cure.

To raise awareness of this syndrome we are having a Disney Theme for our Blog Hop.

For my card I have decided to use one of the Disney Princesses, and not a frilly glittery one, but a strong independent one, Yes of course it is Pocahontas!!

Pocahontas is one of my daughters favourites, and insisted that I make her!! She is from the Cricut Cartridge Dreams Come True.
This cart is a must for any Disney Princess Lover.

The paper I have used are Kaisercraft Tiny Woods and the sentiment is from K Andrew Designs stamp set Positive Thoughts. (This set is currently 60% off) It fits perfectly with Pocahontas, she was the weaver of her own dreams!! 

I used a glitter pen on the sentiment to enhance the sentiment, you can just see it in the photo above but looks so much better in person !!

We will have two lucky winners from this weekends blog hop.

Being Thankful

This week at Hiding in my Craft Room we are very Thankful...Yes that is the challenge Thankful or Thanksgiving. 

We were lucky enough to have one of the DT members Naomi from Creative Bug on the Loose give us all this lovely image to use for this week. So adorable!!

I coloured her using pencils, I also decided to use a lighter version of her so you can not see the stamp lines, this is called no lines colouring. Everything else was in my scrap tray, though I am sure the paper is from a paper pack from K-Mart in Australia. 

 The sentiment is from stampin' Up that one of my dear friends gave me last year for Christmas, love this saying!! 

It is your turn now to be Thankful and show us your projects at Hiding in my Craft Room Challenge #69 and see what the others in the Design Team have done with this little girl!!

Have a Crafty Day, Cheers Jennie

Colour Challenge

Today is colour challenge day over at Hiding In My Craft Room and this weeks challenge is Black Orange & Purple, now for most this says Halloween  but here in Australia we don't really do Halloween so this was a challenge to see what I could come up with.

I had the middle piece in my stash this was cut from the Cricut cartridge Storybook, I then layered it on the orange and the black mat is from the Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges, I had to change the dimentions to fit this on to the card. 

I decided that this works as a sympathy card for a friends mother who just loves bright colours, so I used the sentiment is from the K Andrew Design stamps set Sympathetic Sayings 

K Andrew Designs

Head on over to Hiding In My Craft Room to join the challenge #66 and to see what the other DT girls have come up with.

Have a Craft Day, Cheers Jennie
