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.

Sketch time with a twist at Peachy Keen Stamps

Hello Everyone! Hopefully by the time this posts I will be feeling better. Everyone around me has been sick but I thought I was skating thru unharmed..until today that is. So excuse the short post but I am crying to get back into my comfy bed.

For this challenge we have a great sketch to follow over at Peachy Keen Stamps. But there is a twist to bring on the BLING!! Yes Bling it up!! For this challenge I used some Blingified paper which I know it is hard to make out in the photo. I also used some rhinestones, liquid glass, Stickles, and Martha Stewart glitter. I smooshed the glue while tying down the ribbon because I didn't wait long enough for it to dry..OOPPPSSS!!

The adorable little Ducky is from PK-266 Duck Dolls. I can not get enough of this adorable Ducky!! He is to darn cute. I used a die for the mating and wanted to have a flat image so it would be easy to mail. I stamped the Duckie directly onto the mat but it looked so plain. I grabbed my spanking new Grid stamp from Market Street Stamps. I stamped the duck on scrap paper and roughly cut him out. I them covered the good image with the scrap piece and stamped the grid over it and WAALLLAAAA an instant background!! I wanted my duckie to "jump" out a bit so I covered him in liquid glass after I colored him in with my Copics and Stickles.

Okay you all...I sure hope you play along with us this week. Now I am off to La La Land!!
