Light It Up Blue for Autism Awareness Hop!


Hello and welcome to the Light It Up Blue For Autism Awareness Blog Hop! I'm excited to be joining in today to show support for Autism awareness. It's a cause close to my extended family and some special friends.

We have so many fantastic sponsors that have shown their support for Autism Awareness and you can see the complete list here as well as all the hop participants. The Confetti Crew are delighted to be involved and you could win a fabulous prize from Reverse Confetti today! Stop by the Reverse Confetti Blog for all the designer's cards.

If you would like a chance to win a prize from one of these fabulous companies leave a comment on this blog, and any of the other blogs participating in today's hop! Winners will be chosen at random and will be announced on Monday April 6.


I thought this sentiment from Fabulous Flamingos was just perfect - if there's one thing that I know about all the people in my life affected by Autism, it is that they are all beautifully unique. And a blue Flamingo? Why not, right?! I've used the coordinating Fabulous Flamingos Confetti Cuts. The sentiment was stamped on an embossed circle from Circles 'n Scallops, the main layer is a Tag Me, Too Confetti Cut. I've also used some accent arrows from Arrows 'n Elements

Thank you SO much for stopping by today. If you'd like to learn more about Autism, you can visit Autism Speaks. Happy hopping and have a wonderful Easter!
