Wanted to share a layout I put together for Technique Tuesday's Autism Awareness Gallery. A portion of the sale of their Pieces of the Puzzle word stamps and their FUNdamental Pieces goes to Autism Speaks. Take a few minutes to browse through the awesome gallery of work related to autism on their site. Tons of layouts that celebrate very special people.
I also wanted to let you know that SixDegrees.org has started another contest (check out their updated web design). This time around Hanes is matching the top 6 badges up to $10,000. The contest runs between July 19th and September 16th. I am not going to host a badge this time, but encourage any of you who are interested to start one of your own. Such a cool way to make a difference.
And a birthday wish.
Today is the birthday of a very special woman I had the chance to meet last year at Carrie's wedding. Her name is Julie and she is currently doing battle against some very serious cancer (melanoma) which was diagnosed in October 2006. You can read about her story and send along birthday wishes on their family website. She has been bravely chronicling her story over the last few months, sharing information about her experience. Happy Birthday Julie – we are praying for you – thank you for sharing your story.
