World Autism Awareness Day Blog Hop! Labeler Alphabet by Stampin' Up! helps to easily customize sentiments #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

Today a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are participating in a blog hop to help bring awareness to Autism.

What is Autism? Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. ASD is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a “spectrum condition” that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and early diagnosis/intervention and access to appropriate services/supports lead to significantly improved outcomes.  This description and more about Autism can be found here:  http://www.autism-society.org/what-is/

I love coloring with Aqua Painters! You don’t have to be perfect with them.  Just remember, when using Aqua Painters, to wet the paper a tad before adding color.  This keeps the color from soaking in immediately and causing ugly dark spots.

Notice the “R” is slightly different than the rest of the letters?  I accidentally misplaced the R that matches the rest of the letters, but the nice thing about this set is that is still works and looks good by mixing the different types of letters together.

I found this puzzle piece with a google search and printed it at 15% of its original size.  I then glued it to a piece of thin cardboard and cut it out with scissors to create my template.  I traced it with a pencil onto Watercolor Paper, adjusting the pieces to make them look a tad different.
