• Different NOT Less Autism Awareness Charity Kit, Alpha Set & Bundle (FREEBIE)

    Today is Autism Awareness Day here in the US, kicking off an entire month of programs designed to promote Autism Awareness and inclusion. Autism Spectrum Disorder(ASD) affects over 1% of the world’s population and in the United States, over 3.5 million people live with some form of autism. The Autism Society is celebrating their 50th anniversary and has become the leading source of information, research, reference and support on the autism spectrum. For more information on ASD, or to make a donation go to the Autism Society’s website.

    During the month of April, I will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the sales of these “Different NOT Less” products to the Autism Society.

    The Different NOT Less kit includes 20 papers and 70 elements. The 80-piece Alpha Set includes upper and lower case letters, 10 numbers and 18 symbols. The bundles include all of the above. Scrapkits, Alphas and Bundles are available in either Full-Size or Tagger, exclusively in the Wilma4Ever Store

    O’Scrap Blog Train

    Anything Goes on the O’Scrap Blog Train this month, as long as it includes a bird of some sort. The day this palette was released, our mentally challenged cardinal returned from his little hiatus. I say mentally challenged because he HAS to have given himself more than one concussion flying around our house for hours on end attacking every single window repeatedly. Then, when he’s done beating up the house, he moves on to the cars, attacking all the windows and mirrors. He has been doing this for a couple years now, so it is a wonder to me that he’s still around…must have one very hard head.

    Anyway…I grabbed a pic of him during a 2 minute stretch while he was actually calm and sitting still, extracted it and added him to my portion of this blog train, which includes 7 other elements and 18 papers. Kit is available in either full-size (300ppi/2 download zips) or tagger (72ppi/1 download zip) and links are available below the preview.
