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.

Love is in the Air

WOWSERS...was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this piece of digital artwork. I don't even want to call it a digistamp because it goes wayyyy beyond that! You can find the rose for sale at Delicious Doodles. This is what the image looked like before I kinda hide alot of the beauty of the stamp.

What I love about this stamp is you can just simply print it out on colored paper and all of the hard work is done for you!

I tried at first to do paper piecing on the rose but it just looked horrible. I ended up printing out 4 layers each one gradually smaller so I could give the rose dimension instead. I ended up only using two so the good news is that I have two left over to put on another project.

Supplies used:

Rose Digital Stamp from Delicious Doodles.

Prismacolor pencils
Anna Griffin Stamps
Stampin Up ~ Creamy Caramel to distress the sides and to stamp the image on the background randomly
Black Gems from Recollections (actually these are Halloween :D )

The sketch was from the Allsorts Challenge Blog. This card also satisfies Lily-Boo Too's Valentine challenge, Cute Daisy May's Love challenge, Creative Card Crew's distressing challenge and last but not least Everybody-Art-CHallenge.
