This blog is generally dedicated to card making using a variety of scrap booking papers, layouts, and designs, and the occasional blurb about challenges that I encounter raising my son who has Asperger's Syndrome.
This is my submission for the (Midweek throw-down) over at Operation Write Home combined with the color (coral,kiwi,banana) challenge over at Bugaboo stamps & another excuse to use my new nestie dies. It is the "four legged friend challenge." I used this Alligator that came in my new Sandy Lion stamps set I got yesterday at Michaels for 40% off! I'm trying to do more boyish cards but in the end I could not resist this time with adding the flower.
I'm a 40 year old Momma "Warrior". I have two children; a daughter -19 in college and a son - 8 in the second grade. My son was diagnosed at 6 with a mild Autistic Spectrum Disorder known as Asperger's Syndrome. AS is a neurological disorder that hinders a child's ability to function socially either by verbal impairment or by their inability to interpret social situations as a typical child would. Many kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders are terribly misunderstood because they often appear normal and have average to above average IQ but are often delayed by several years across many other areas of development.
