About Me

My photo
Carlisle, Pennsylvania
I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

Inspirational Card Sketch #28

I had alot of fun with this one! This card is for the Inspirational Card Sketch Christmas challenge. I also am very proud of myself because I was able to use the smallest scraps that most people would throw away!!! Whenever I challenge myself like that I just get all giddy that I made something out of nothing. With this challenge I was finally able to use my Peachy Keen Snowman stamp that I have been dying to use. It just makes me want to be a kid again and go snow tubing!!!

The supplies I used:

Peachy Keen Stamps PK 303 A ~ Tubular Star Snowman Small . I cut the images out and raised them with 3D mounting dots/squares

Primacolor pencils
Blender pen
Glitter paper and unknown DP
Stampin up Really Red ink
Glue Pen
Liquid Applique - around the rim of the hat
Stampin Up Crystal Effects - I put this on the tube and the hat for that extra shiny look.
Pom Poms
