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.

And the winners are......

Hello Everyone! We have lots in store for you in the next couple of days. As promised I am starting to announce the give-a-ways this week. I have something extra special in the works but it is taking me longer than usual to do it. My 2 little one year old bosses have other things in mind for me..chuckles!! Please accept my apologies for this late post. Between severe thunderstorm watches and two little crazy ladies I have not gotten into my craft room all day...until now. Since I am running late I don't have the photos of the prizes to post but I wanted to at least announce the winners of these three projects that I randomly picked. Their prizes will be a Scrapping Goodie Bag! Once I announce the winners please contact me within 7 days to claim your prize. This does not take any of the winners I announce out of the running for the $15 Peachy Keen Gift Card. That will be chosen by random.org on Sunday.

Okay on to the first three winners!!!!

This one I had fun with. I have been wanting to make alphabet flash cards for the girls for sometime. But I never thought of doing a set for the Seasons for some reason. Sweetest Harmony left a comment suggesting making flashcards for kids to learn the seasons . I had such a great time coming up with something.

Okay, RavenB requested a holiday card made with the flower die. This was done rather quickly but it was the first one I did :) I used a bunch of pop dots to give it lots of layers but you can't really make that out in the photo. I used the hat from the accessory die then added some Stickles and liquid applique.

Next I picked the comment left by MY QUILLING NEST. She asked to see a gift box made with the Birdie die. I am not the best with coloring. I cut the bird out in white card stock. I then used my Prismacolor pencils for some shading. Next I cut another bird out in vellum to layer on top of the blue to soften it a bit.

Congrats to my first three winners!!!!!!!!!! Please contact me so I can get your prizes out to you.. Thanks for all the suggestions....keep em' coming!
