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.

Breaking in my New Stamps!

I just got a new package filled of love yesterday! It was filled with my Peachy Keen Stamps!!! Boy was I like a kid on Christmas morning!! I am still using my scraps but I am kinda getting bored of them so I may start tapping into one of my many thousands of pieces of DP very soon!

For my first card I picked the onion stamp from Peachy Keen's
PK-271 Faceless Veggiesstamp set. The first thing that popped into my head was to make the onion cry. I used the teary eyed stamp from Peachy Keen PK-505 Too Much Fun Faces for the middle of the onion. I wanted a phrase that would go with the crying fit the onion was having so I embossed the sentiment "MISSING YOU".


2 Sketches 4 You ~ Sketch challenge
A Spoon Full of Sugar 1 DP, 1 Emboss, 1 Button, 1 Ribbon challenge
Charisma Cardz Think Male challenge
Our Creative Corner Something Old challenge...I used lots of goodies for this challenge! I used some of the very first embellishments/Ric Rac ribbon that I bought from QVC about 7 years ago, a Versa Marker pen that I completly forgot that I had and a Stampin Up! Stamp set called SO MANY SAYINGS that I have never used from 2007 which in itself is pretty sad!

For this card I used my new Peachy Keen PK-275 Faceless Flowers 12 Petal Pointed and
PK-276 Flower Centers. What is good about the flower center stamp set is this can easily become a background design stamp that you can make to suit your needs.
