Turner Syndrome Blog Hop


Hello Blogging Friends!!


Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!




Nineteen caring Sponsors and eleven DT Members have partnered with us to bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public. For details on how you might win any of these fabulous prizes, please see Lori's TS home page. Thanks for learning About Turner Syndrome




My TS related project uses a few colors from the TS official color board:



Here is my card


I honestly have to admit I never knew of  Turner Syndrome until I 'met' Lori
and her beautiful daughter 'Julie'.
Now I know it affects 1 in 2500 female babies born....
I encourage you to read Lori's journey HERE
I applaud  Lori for all she has done to bring awareness
to this and for all the fund raising she has worked hard at...
it cannot be easy and takes a lot out of her I am sure...
she is truly a special person with a heart of gold!!

I used a sweet image from My Favorite Things 
(which they happen to be one of our sponsors)
she is holding a button jar,
but this time she is filling it with stars!


There are lots of prizes to be had...
not only from the fabulous sponsors but also
some of the designers in the hop.

I am one of them and I have this fun sampling of
Nuvo products!
Aqua pens (watercolor)~coloring markers~ and two bottles of
Crystal Drops.


To win my prize 
You MUST leave a comment here on MY blog...
I would also love for you to become a follower and STAY a follower
after the hop is complete...just sayin'!

Please read below as it has very important instructions for you to
win from the main blog and the sponsors....
I hope you have enjoyed the hop and all the  beautiful designers  cards!!

HOW TO WIN On The 'It's A Girl Thing Blog Hop':

Visit the Turner Syndrome blog hop HERE
and read all the instructions below
(also posted on the main page...this is just for your convenience.)


  • Leave a comment on the TS Awareness Home Blog Post stating at least one thing you learned about Turner Syndrome. Our Tab titled About Turner Syndrome has a pictorial explanation of many of the symptoms or limitations faced by TS females.
  • Leave a comment on one or more DT blog hop posts. 
  • Prizes will be awarded randomly from the comments left on 19 of the DT blog hop posts + by 11 of the designers who are awarding prizes of their own. So the more posts you visit and comment on, the more likely you are to win a prize. Don't forget! You must also leave one comment on the Home Blog, too.
  • We hope this will bring an awareness not only about Turner Syndrome in females, but that if any human being seems a bit out of the ordinary, there could be a health-related or genetic reason for it, and it would be nice to give everyone the benefit of the doubt in our daily lives.

 The design team thanks you for supporting and learning About Turner Syndrome.
