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.

Celebrating the Month at the Sisterhood!

Good afternoon everyone!! This post was suppossed to go up yesterday but we had some bad weather and I had to shut down the computer. I didn't realize until now that it never launced so here it is!

Come celebrate the month of August with us over at The Sisterhood Crafters. This week we are challenging you to use these colors:

I am just starting to get my mojo back since I haven't been crafting for a couple of weeks. I wanted to make a simple card and since I am always soooooo behind I thought I would do a snail...kinda like sorry it took me so long card!

This is what I came up with:

I cut out the snail on my Cricut using the Create A Critter cartridge. I stamped her little face with my Peachy Keen Critter Faces medium stamp set. I embossed the plain white card with my herringbone Cuttlebug folder. Very simple but cute!

Stop on by and come take the The Sisterhood Crafters. You will love all the great samples by our DT and we would love to see what you came up with!
