World Autism Awareness Blog Hop

Welcome to the World Autism Awareness Blog Hop host by Created by Cori. Thank you for joining us today as we spotlight our loved ones with Autism. 

If you have come from Pam's blog, you're on the right track. If you've lucked up on this blog post today, be sure you head back to Cori's blog and hop from the beginning. 

So, I do not have a child with Autism but my bestie and amazing admin, Colleen, does. Ever since she has been going through the evals and therapies with her son, it's been something that has become close to my heart. Although I am many, many miles away from her - I feel like I am a part of the whole process with her! I get to share in her frustrations,high points, her struggles, and her joys - especially when the work she puts in pays off and he takes a bath and plays in the tub!!!  So, today I am sharing with you a picture frame I made for her! I used the Scraptastical Kreations Autism Title freebie, which you can download HERE for free. 

Here is my picture frame. This is the first time I've ever tried to put vinyl on a picture frame and layer it, so I can't complain too much on how it came out. I'm happy with it, but I would do a few things differently next time. I hope she likes it!! : ) 

You have reached the end of the hop, and I would like to thank you for hopping along with us all today. I hope you have been inspired by the projects and stories shared with you today. 

Here is the complete line up again, in case you got lost along the way.

  17. This is such a wonderful thing you are doing bringing awareness to autism. My son is autistic and it is great to be able to connect with others on the internet that are going through similar things to what I am going through. I wanted to share with other parents with an autistic child a great website, http://onlineceucredit.com/edu/social-work-ceus-pcs , that offers great autism advice. I hope this is helpful!
