Rett Syndrome Awareness Disney Hop

Welcome to the First Annual Blog Hop to help raise awareness for...

Rett Syndrome Awareness

Your first stop should be Robin Lane's Blog .  If you did not start there please go back to the beginning so you are sure not to miss out on all amazing projects.  Also Robin will be offering some eye candy, so be sure to hop all the way to the end.  You must be a follower of Robin's blog and have left comments on everyone's blog along the way to qualify for blog candy!  If you came from Melanie's Blog, you are on the right trail!

What is Rett Syndrome? Rett Syndrome is a devastating neurologic developmental disorder that occurs almost exclusively in girls. It is usually 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 1 in 15,000 female births.

Early developmental milestones appear normal, but between 6-18 months of age, there is a delay or regression in development, particularly affecting speech, hand skills and coordination. A hallmark of Rett Syndrome is the repetitive hand movements that may include seizures, irregular breathing, swallowing difficulties, and curvature of the spine. Many individuals with Rett Syndrome live well into adulthood.There is currently no cure.

My Main Project is a Disney Princess Mini Album:

There is a tag behind the photo mount to journal

Sleeping Beauty
There are three tags to add photos or journaling and a photo
frame for the real princess!

There are four tags/photo mounts to journal or add pictures

Sleeping Beauty and the 7 Dwarfs

Closer look at the dwarfs
Ariel and the grotto
Tab opens to view three photo mounts


Princess Tiana and the frog of course!

I was so excited about using the Disney Theme to help promote awareness for Rett Syndrome, I created two cards as well:

Cinderella Card
Tinker Bell
