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.

Practical Scrappers - Loose Glitter or Flocking

The challenge this week over at Practical Scrappers is to use loose glitter or flocking. When I got this adorable stamp from Squigglefly for some reason I automatically thought to use glitter on his spots. I cut out the digi after I printed it and added some Martha Stewart Brownstone glitter to the giraffe's spots, horns, mane and feet. I then decided to tuck him neatly into a little gift tag (which unfortunately hid most of the glitter) and attaching that to the front of the card. The tag and oval sentiment can be pulled off and put on a scrapbook page if the receiver likes when they are done with it. It was a quick card to use up my scraps...Gotta love it!

I hope you stop on by and share your glitter or flocking projects with us over at
Practical Scrappers. I love to see what everyone comes up with!
