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.

Sugar and Spice and everything nice!

Hello Everyone! Sorry for this late post but I have been dealing with a situation that has been brought to our attention this morning. I plan on posting it tomorrow because people need to be AWARE of people like this in Blogland!! It is disgusting that people would do this. So tune in later or tomorrow for the news.

On to the good stuff! There is a new challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge blog. For this challenge we had to follow this sketch below. I started out with a layout and had it almost done. But time got away from me and in my twisted mind I thought it was easier to start all over on something else.

Here is the sketch.

And this is what I came up with.

The supplies I used were:
PK-411 Lil' Gingerbreads and phrases - for the sentiment
PK-406 Sugar 'n Spice Ginger Girl
October Afternoon DP
Papertrey Ink Kraft Card Stock
Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy ribbon
Prismacolor pencils
StazOn ink
white gel pen
Liquid applique
Martha Stewart border Punch
