Hope For Brady Blog Train & Facebook Fan Freebie

Hope For Brady began in 2011 as a multi-designer Mega Kit collaboration for which the proceeds were used to help Brady get therapy equipment to help him learn to speak. We accomplished that goal of getting him the equipment!!

Now it is an annual event in which the proceeds are donated to the Hope Scholarship fund for the Son Rise Program. This program has been a miracle for Brady…he is now almost 5 years old and has gone from being non verbal…to speaking approximately 20 words in only 3 months, THANKS to this program!! If you would like to follow Brady's progress, click here.

The Scholarship is given to parents to help with tuition to the program which teaches the program principals and enables them to help their kiddos overcome some of the difficulties they face due to their autism.

The Mega Kit is for sale at Just 4 Our Babies. Each year during the annual blog train you can collect extra pieces and goodies to add to your Mega Kit!!

Here is my contribution to the blog train, a set of stitched cardstock elements to make your pages stand out! (If you look carefully, I also included a 10% off coupon to my store, which expires on April 30th. Keep an eye out, I'll have some neat stuff going into my store this month!)

Some elements were resized to fit on the preview. Drop shadows are for the preview only. Blog Train Downloads will be available on my blog for 1 year after the original posting, after which I reserve the right to add them to my store. All Blog Train contributions are hosted on my personal ftp and offered for direct download for your convenience.

Your Next stop in the blog train is: Digi Deborah Designs

If you would like to start at the beginning of the train click here.


Be sure to drop by my facebook fan page and pick up my current fan exclusive freebie there!

My sister was diagnosed at 13 with Asperger's Syndrome, which at the time was referred to as an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Some of her doctors have called it "High Functioning Autism". As a result, World Autism Day and Autism Awareness are close to my heart. Since April 2nd is such an important day for me, I thought I would do a little something extra for this blog train. If you are interested, please feel free to hop over to my facebook fan page, like it,  and pick up this alpha (uppercase only) that I made to coordinate with the Hope for Brady Mega Kit.

Next post up is my contribution to the LDS Blog Train - check it out if you are so inclined, and happy scrapping!

Look What's Happening at Divine Digital!

Wow, April is just chock full of events at Divine Digital this year! I was contemplating when I would make my designing return, and when I saw all of the cool stuff going on this month, I just couldn't wait any longer!

First up will be two blog trains - the April LDS Blog Train and the Hope for Brady Blog Train. I hope you'll check back on Sunday and pick up both of those.

Then on the 6th of April, the designers at Divine Digital are going to be participating in a Bunny Hop! We'll be sending you all over the web, to our facebook fan pages, twitters, google+ pages, blogs, and the Divine Digital forums in search of bunny prints that will lead you to secret freebies! :) They will only be available on the 6th, though, so keep your eyes open, yeah?

April 9th is not only the day after Easter, it's also Divine Digital's birthday! We will be having all kinds of activities - including freebies, raffles, and sales! Stay tuned to my blog here for more information about the Birthday Bash. :)

So keep checking the blog and the forums at Divine Digital for more information, and happy scrapping!
