Disney Blog Hop for Rett Syndrome

Welcome to Day 2 of Create-A-Latte's First Annual Blog Hop for...Rett Syndrome Awareness. Hopefully you are making it here from Suzanne at Zannie Berry, but if you stumbled upon us, your first stop should have been at Robin Lane's Blog.
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.

This hop is in honor of Robin's daughter and this month is Rett Syndrome Awareness month. The hope is to Black Out Rett Syndrome. Robin wanted a fun hop so each member created a fun Disney themed project for you. I started out with the color black in honor of the "black out" idea for Rett Syndrome Month and created this fun Halloween layout.
I created a large Mickey shaped pumpkin using Mickey Font and Gypsy Wanderings. I cut the Mickey head in both orange and black and simple trimmed off the orange ears before layering them. The face was cut from Gypsy Wanderings.
After getting my pumpkin together, I selected a background paper from my DVWC Bewitched stack and added got to work setting up my layout. I wanted a lot of circles so I used my  Creative Memories circle cutter and cut the photo and backing layers.
 The final touch of the "Mickey Treats" heading using my Hannah Montana cartridge.
