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.

Meet Pippin!





I just adore this image from Digital Delights by Louby Loo called Pippin. He was a freebie awhile back and I have wanted to use him for the longest time. When I saw the challenges this week I thought it would be perfect!

Guess he was mad at me for leaving him in my files so long because he fought me every step of the way. My printer jammed twice then I tried to cut & emboss on my Cuttlebug with my Nesties and boy was that a sight! I finally gave up and settled with the one that was off centered and embossed on the wrong side!!!! Oh well... After coloring him with my Copics & Prismacolor pencils I covered him in Crystal Effects by Stampin Up. But silly me left it standing and it started to drip. I tried to smudge it down but it didn't really work. I was going to try to heat it but I figured after all the fighting I have done with this card I should just leave him be sipping on his foam. I added some flowers, liquid applique, brads and rhinestones to complete the card.

I designed this card to fit into several challenges.

The Play Date Cafe Color combo challenge
Saturday Spotlight Coffee Inspirational challenge
Sketch Saturday Sketch challenge
My Grafico Paper Piecing challenge
Pile It on Animal-rrific
Your Next Stamp Distressing challenge
Hand Full of Stamps Something Sweet
