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.

New Challenge & Guest Design Team Call !!!!

Hello from my snowed in craft room! Actually the snow isn't that bad yet but it is our first significant snow fall this year and since I live in Pennsylvania I consider that pretty darn good. School is canceled but I can still see some grass in places. So I have declared it a Pajama wearing day. I am making some homemade soup and some homemade bread to set the mood of just chilling'!

This week over at The Sisterhood of Crafters we have an easy peasy challenge for you all. The theme is "ANYTHING GOES" so it is pretty much everything and anything your crafty little brain can dream up. AND the exciting part is that we are having an open Guest Designer call. We are looking for a few Crafty women who want to have some fun. It would be for a one month term which is 2 projects. All you have to do is put GDT next to your name on your challenge entry. I will be picking a few out and contacting the winners directly. I will let you know the two challenges you will be responsible for once you get picked so you will have plenty of time to create. Right now it is purely for fun and to get your creations out into blog world. We had a great response to our last challenge and hope that is the case on this one to. If you would love to be a Guest Designer and join us for some fun please submit your requests to us over at The Sisterhood of Crafters. Our challenges run for two weeks so you have some time!

I needed a card for a friend that is going through some tough times with her Mom being sick so I wanted to keep it simple. This is what I came up with.

I stamped the flowers in Versamarker then embossed with with clear embossing powder for a clean and simple look. Very dainty and delicate I think.
