Huey's Uncle - Autism Awareness Kit

1 in 110 Children and 1 in 70 Boys are affected by Autism.

Denise (a Grieving Mommy) and Natalie (Natalie's Place Designs) have joined their creative talents to promote Autism Awareness Month. All proceeds from Huey's Uncle kit will go to Autism Speaks, a nonprofit organization to benefit children with Autism. Natalie has a very touching and personal account on her blog of how she discovered her children have been affected by Autism. This kit can be purchased thru Denise's blog. All of us on the Creative Team want to do our part so we would like to offer the freebies. Yeah!

Cynthia's Layout and Blog:

I LOVE her photos! Her layout and freebies are TOO CUTE!!

Linda's Layouts and Freebie:

I love Linda's Donald layout but I can't stop looking at all the details Linda put into her layout of her Water Babies! AWESOME! Love how she used the notebook as the journalling area. Brilliant!!

 Lisa's Layout and Blog:

I can look at pictures of Lisa's grandson Caleb all day long! I love how Lisa did the split layout with the border included in the kit. STUNNING!!

and last, lil ol' me:

This layout ... well, is just plain embarassing! Sophia was furious with her daddy and I for not leaving her with her sister in the Disney Beach Club, Sand Caslte Club. A great place to leave kids for a few hours while the adults can have some alone time. At the time, the Sand Castle Club accepted kids 4 to 12, Sophia was 3 years old. It was our 20th wedding anniversary and we had ADR (Advanced Dining Reservations) for Chef's de France in Epcot. Sophia is such a easy going, passive child, we didn't think we would have to endure 45 minute meltdown before entering Epcot! Then we had about another hour of the crossed arms accompanied by "the face". You know the one!

I used Linda's template #1, available on her blog (she has the best templates!!). I made the outside border with the multi-stripe paper in the Huey's Uncle kit. Layer the striped paper with stripes going horizonal and a duplicate copy of the same striped paper rotated to the right (or left) so the stripes are vertical, shrinking in the sides of one of the papers, voila! Another way to get the same affect but getting the corner diagonal "cuts" - layer the 2 papers (horizontally and vertically, equal sizes) then with your eraser, erase 2 opposite sides making sure at the corners to erase a diagonally. Clear as mud? Here are some elements I made for this layout. Click HERE to download.
