About Me

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.

Peachy Keen Recipe Card Challenge

I know my brain is fried but geezzzzz! This was suppossed to be posted yesterday but when I scheduled it I put the wrong date in..SORRY! So I am reposting it today!

Hello Everyone! As I have mentioned before I am a proud member of the DT over at
Peachy Keen Stamps. This is only my second challenge and I am already having a blast!! This week our challenge was to do a recipe card and it was hard for me because I had to try to find a recipe that would be small enough to fit on a card. When I tell you that you need to try this recipe YOU NEED TO TRY THIS RECIPE!!! Everyone I make it for demands the recipe. It is very good and very easy to make. On the ingredient list it doesn't show Cool Whip but you will see it listed in the directions so make sure you buy it if you plan on making it.

I used a piece of 6X6 cardstock for my recipe card. I stamped the background with
PK-101 Medium Polka Dot Print on the green cardstock.

For the faces on the strawberries I used PK-532 Simple Sallies stamp set. One of my very first PK stamp sets was PK-539 Funshine Faces - Sour which I used for the Lemon. For the bowl I cut it out on my Cricut and then embossed it with my "Morrocan Screen" Cuttlebug folder. I used some ice cream cut for the cool whip from my cricut and accented it with Stickles. Don't those Oreos look good enough to eat!! LOL!!

I was planning on making a little 6X6 album with any/all recipe cards that I make since everyone is always asking me how I made this or that. I figured when I was done I would have a nice little gift to give to somebody. This was going to be my first recipe card for the album but the idiot I am had it on my desktop and spilled icetea all over it!!!! Thank goodness I took the picture first!

Come on over and play along with us this week over at Peachy Keen Stamps. There is some great prizes and I look forward to seeing some amazing recipes!!!
