Taste Tester and Hostess for Scrap TakeOut – On the Road Again (Kit and Word Art), Sus Designs

Our family loves a good road trip--hitting the open road with a plan and navigation just waiting for the next highlight! 
Have you taken a road trip or is one planned? Then you will need this kit when you get home, perfect to document your road trips, vacations, or just everyday trips around town, maybe even a car show. Filled with signs, cars, and other travel related elements along with your standard buttons, flowers and assorted ways to help map out your pages. The color scheme is classic red, oranges, blues, yellow with touches of teal, lime and grays.

Here is how I used these pieces....

Creative Team for Dees-Deelights – Fairy Tales

 Here is an actual layout that I created using Fairy Tales and the freebie that I am offering for the Rett Syndrome Awareness Blog hop (see the earlier post below).

Our daughter just loved dressing up in the items that were included in a Disney princess fashion clothing chest that we bought when she was younger. We definitely got our money's worth because she used it so much and all her friends enjoyed it too!

Oct. 25th Disney Blog Hop for Rett Syndrome Awareness - Freebie (Clustered borders and a clustered frame)

One of my digital friends and fellow CT members sadly lost her daughter to Rett's Syndrome.  She has started a blog hop in order to  reach as many people as possible to spread awareness about Rett Syndrome.  

During the hop, you will see some Disney themed projects created by some very talented ladies.  You will also find some wonderful goodies (freebies) along the way created by some of my other friends.....  And information about Rett Syndrome will be shared
If you have just stopped by my blog to visit with me, thank you and welcome, but please start at the beginning of the hop with our
Hostess, Robin from Create-A-Latte. (We would not want you to miss any of these wonderful projects.)
So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.

Background Information -   
Rett Syndrome strikes without warning. A girl with Rett Syndrome usually starts out as a happy and healthy baby. Then something goes terribly wrong. She loses the ability to speak, she can't use her hands to play with toys, or to even feed herself, and she may lose the ability to walk. 
Despite their physical disabilities, girls with Rett Syndrome are believed to be functioning mentally at a much higher level than previously thought.   
Rett Syndrome is 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 in 15,000 female births.  
*Symptoms of Rett Syndrome...
Rett Syndrome is a genetic neurological disorder that affects girls between 6 and 18 months of age. This regressive disease leads to lifelong handicaps, including loss of speech and voluntary muscle control, and is often misdiagnosed as Cerebral Palsy or Autism. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and almost always include...
*Developmental Regression or Plateau
*Near constant hand clasping or wringing
*Severe communication impairment
*Breathing problems
*Digestive issues
*Floppy arms and legs
*If able to walk, then with a shaky, unsteady gait, or toe-walking. But most do end up using a wheelchair for the most part.
*Slowing head growth
*Abnormal sleep patterns
*Transient loss of social engagement
*Poor circulation that can lead to cold and bluish arms and legs
Many individuals with Rett Syndrome live well into adulthood, although there are some that do not get that chance and end up losing their battle to Rett Syndrome at a very early age.
Most people including Doctors are not aware of Rett Syndrome, so, please help me get the word out about Rett Syndrome and hopefully the more that know the faster we can help in finding a cure.
