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.

WOW...Some more good News for me!!

Maybe I should play lotto! I am not used to having good things happen to me since I have some pretty crummy luck. But this weekend I was asked to be on the DT over at
Peachy Keen Stamps!!!!! I was so excited and honored of course I said yes!! I have been using these stamps for years. I started out with just the faces and have grown into all of the others she has to offer. When I stamp on textured paper the image comes out soooo clear like I printed it on the paper. The quality is 100% there and how can you not love the adorable images??? These have become my favorite stamps to use and I use them daily.

I had only a couple of hours to get my submission in for this week and I was told not to worry about it that I could start next week but I wanted to get it done. I spent most of that time working on another card that well let's just say it didn't come out right so I switched. The challenge this week was to follow a sketch.

I recently purchased the Once Upon A Princess Cricut Cartridge since I have twin girls and figured it would definitely come in handy. When I found out that Peachy Keen was coming out with faces for these little darlings I was ecstatic!!! The faces are kinda ugly that come on the cartridge which is why I didn't buy them it at first. I used some scraps from Basic Grey, Martha Stewart glitter on the wings, stickers from K & Co., rhinestones from Recollections, Prima flowers and of course my
PK-640 Princess Face Assortment stamp set. Again I didn't have much time at all to come up with this card but I think she came out cute!

The challenges run every two weeks so there is plenty of time to come join along. The prize this week is the huge stamp set that I used on my card PK-640. It consists of 27 different stamps. Hope to see you there!!
