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.

The Holidays Are Just Snow Much Fun!

How cute are these stamps?????? I just love them!!! They have just been released over at Peachy Keen Stamps. I used the new PK-329 Chill Baby Chill Snowman Set for the stamps and the sentiment from PK-328 Snowman Winter Greeting Card Set. Unfortunately I just couldn't get a good picture of it. The glitter looks yellow in the pics but of course its not!

The stamp set came with the same stamp but different sizes. I started this card out by stamping two images with the intention of seeing which one I liked the best. But then I thought it looked cute just as it was so I left it like it was and the card took off from there.

I made this card to fit Peachy Keen recipe challenge. The challenge was to use Polka dots, stripes, a stamped image and a border. I used the Martha Steward Snowflake border punch along with various scraps of DP. I colored the stamps with my Prismacolor pencils, glitter and a DecoArt liquid gold pen to accent. I stamped the image twice so I can cut out the hats to mount them with pop dots for that dimenionsal look.

This card also fits the Simon Says "Let It Snow" Challenge and the Charisma Cardz color challenge.

I made the card while I was on the phone with my friend. Kinda bummed because I was looking forward to her coming up this weekend so we could play with all of my new stamping stuff but unfortunately things changed. I told her that I could be the plump snowman and she could be the smaller snowman. I think I will send her this card...maybe it will put a smile on her face!
