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.

Snowmany Thanks!

WHOO HOOOO I am still sticking to my New Years resolution! I had this piece of scrap paper that I trimmed a bit to fit on the card, then I took the part I trimmed and matted it with a darker color and added it to them bottom. I followed the sketch over at the Peachy Keen Sketch challenge. What you can't make out in the picture is a line at the top of the card that I added of snowflakes using my sewing machine. This was the first time that I was able to use two great stamp sets from Peachy Keen. I used the sentiment from PK-232 Large Snowflakes & Snow Faces and the sentiment from PK 327 Winter Peekers & Phrases. I added glitter to the snowflakes as well as the sentiment for a little bling and used pop dots to mount each snowflake. BOth of these sets are adorable and I am kinda bummed out that I never got a chance to use them sooner!

What I like about this size/format card is that it fits into a business envelope which you can buy by the boxes at the dollar store.

This card fits the challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog, One Stop Craft Challenge and the Crazy For Fun Challenge.
