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.

Peachy Keen Color & Sketch Combo

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you all had a nice, relaxing holiday weekend. It is time for a new Peachy Keen Stamps challenge! This week there was a sketch & color challenge. I was a bit skeptical about the colors to be honest. But then I thought hey that's why they call it a challenge right?? And you know every time I think I can't do that or use those colors I am very surprised at the outcome and how cute it was. I did a LO of one of my twins during bath time. I put her name on the tub so there would be no question on which one it was!

Here are the colors & sketch we had to use:

Here is my take on it:

Supplies used:

Vellum stickers for the bubbles
Rhinestone accents
New Arrival cartridge
Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge
K&Company melon frame
PK-741 Baby Animal Faces This stamp set is great. All the faces are made to go with the New Arrival cartridge. The faces that cut out are less than desirable in my mind so I am very happy to own this set!
