I'm honored to be a part of a massive blog hop bringing and raising awareness to Autism. My project today plays off of the prominent #lightitupblue campaign. I've used the WATTS of Occasions Stamp set available from Stampin' Up! The background on this card was created using Brusho Color Crystals.
In my early days working as a photographer I was asked to create a family portrait for friends who had a three young children and one child with Autism. While there was lots of planning for the photo day to help make the experience successful we had not accounted for the bright flash of the camera. That spontaneous flash was traumatizing for this sweet little one and every flash brought on a mini attack (and a kick to the photographer, lol). This young man is now in his late 20's and I wonder if he even recalls this experience? I should ask him. Ha. Regardless we ended up with a memorable photo! Humbling how everyday simple experiences aren't always so simple ... a flash of a bulb.
