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.

Some fun in this rainy, yucky weather!

Even though it is pouring rain, dreary and miserable out today I have a smile on my face! Today is the start of the blog hop that we are throwing in celebration of the Peachy Keen Stamps new September releases. OMG! When I say adorable I mean adorable!!! Mrs. Kathy never fails so amaze me. Every time I think she can't top the stamp I love, WHAM she hits us with more. To see all of the new releases click HERE.

Every designer was given a set to work with. I was given PK-637 Lisa Jean Halloween to use. This set has endless possibilities. I love that there is an extra arm that you can pose the witch in different ways. You could also use this as a "I'm sorry I have been such a witch lately" or something to that effect.




I started my image one late night after I came home from volunteering. It was one of those situations where I should of just walked away. I tried to save my poor little witch by using paint and flower soft for the hair. I just kinda slopped it on because I thought I wasn't going to use it. But when time got away from me I had to.

After I was done with the image I burned the edges and let it cool. Then I took a few more of the images from this set and stamped them on Shrinky Dinks and colored with my Prismacolored pencils. I wanted to get the witches legs into the cauldron which is how I came up with the idea to use Shrinky Dinks. I just love how the potion bottle came out! The amount of detail in such a small piece is amazing!! You will also see some guest appearances from the ghost and bat which are from PK-631 Halloween Minis & PK-630 Nikkity Knack Cat Gang.

This is what I came up with:




Now for the fun part! Each DT member along the way of the hop (see below for the full order of the hop) is giving away the stamp set that they used in their design!! How fun is that????? So if you just got here make sure to start at the beginning to leave comments on all of the posts to increase your chances of winning. We all pick our own winners so potentially you can win multiple times!! YIPPEE!!

All you have to do to win the set I am giving away is leave a comment on this post. How about telling us what your favorite Halloween costume was growing up??? The only ones I really remember were the ones my Mom made me. OMG..one year I was Wonder Woman and she had this star wallpaper that she wrapped around my boots, wrists and even made me a head piece. Then one year I was Raggedy Ann and I wore a red mop on my head...I loved it! I remember coming home with our sacks full of candy and all of us siblings would sit around a circle and barter & trade what we wanted and didn't want....How grand childhood is!

You have until October 4th to leave a comment to be eligible. I will then pick a winner and post it on my blog. If you do not contact me in one week I will have to give the prize away to another lucky person.

  49. I love all the texture on your card! Looks great! :)

    I think my favorite costume was my first one - my Mom made me into a pumpkin. I had cute white tights on and was barely able to stand up, but i was this big plump pumpkin. :) So for my son's first costume... a pumpkin of course :) And its probably still my favorite for him too.

  53. Your card is so cute! I love the shrinky dinks on it, what detail!!! My favorite costume and I'm probably dating myself here was when I was probably 2 or 3 and it was a spot puppy dog, the costumes back then (early 60's) were made out of material that was almost like flannel PJ's...I wore that costume until it wore out....who remmbers when costumes used to come in boxes?

    ReplyDelete
  54. My favorite costume is the first one I remember-- Cinderella. It was one of those horrible plastic masks with the vinyl printed suit. My mom was a great seamstress so not sure why she bought one but I still remember LOVING it!!!

    Favorite costume had to be the Roller Skating Clown! Yes, that was me. But I also forgot I was a bunch of grapes one year too! My mom blew up about 30 purple ballons tape them a purple sweat shirt with purple tights, put it on me... then she thought how am I gonna get you to the party. So my wonderful neighbor drove me in his work van! Memories!

  66. Love your use of the stamps...
    My favorite costume growing up was a butterfly. I word a lback leotard and tights, with black flat shoes. My father made me a huge set of yellow and black wings (I guess they were cardboard?) and somehow fashioned a pull cord that I could use to make the flap. My mother madde me some cute yellow antanae with yellow pom-poms on top. I kept that costume for years, until it disintigrated....what a happy memory you brought back to me!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Love Lisa Jean! She is so cute. My favorite custome was being dressed as a witch when I had long hair which I could tease up really big and fluffy, have a green face with the added embellishments and the ever present witch's hat.

  81. Such a cute witch! My fave costume as a kid, and I don't know why, was a princess costume. In the 70's we would buy costumes that came in a box that included a plastic 1/2 mask and a thin material printed costume that you would wear over your clothes. I just loved picking out my annual costume!

  116. I don't remember many of my costumes except the ones that I have pictures of. I was in ballet and my mom would use those costumes for halloween. We didn't have much money so we got extra use out of the expensive costumes that we had to buy for ballet anyways.

    The one costume I do remember is from my teen years. I was Esmeralda and I would take my nieces and nephews around to trick or treat...I was always the designated trick-or-treater. I loved it because they had to pay me a fee...I chocolate fee...LOL!!

  122. You are so clever with the legs coming out of the cauldron. LOVE IT!! My favorite costume as a kid was one that I did with a friend. We were siamese twin cats. We wore the same huge black t-shirt and then we each only had one arm out of the side with little cat ears and tales. It was so much fun to be stuck to my best friend for the night.

  129. One year when I was about 9 or 10 I decided to make my own Halloween costume, so I dressed as a dog, got a cardboard box and attached it to suspenders, put stuffed dogs all around me and painted "Puppies for Sale" on the front. I loved being the only one that had that costume!! :)

    Love your card! The Shrinky Dink legs look so cute in the cauldron :)

  130. Love your card.I remember one year I was an angel. My mom ordered my costume from Sears. It was actually white flannel with gold wings and a halo. The wings detached and I wore it as a night gown when Halloween was over. Thanks for the memories.--Ryansmaama
