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.
Here's this weeks Pink elephant sketch challenge. I wasn't totally happy with this card but it is what came together for me. To me this sketch begged for embellishments but these colors are not my favorites and I embossed the pink paper but it did not turn out well due to the area for embossing is larger than the cuttlebug folder so I had to piece it -this I have already found is a drawback to the cuttlebug. At least I got to use my nestie circles for the first time! Happy Scrapp'n!
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.
