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.

"Popping Up" with another Peachy Keen Sketch

Hello Everyone!!!! Today I would love to share with you another great challenge from

Peachy Keen Stamps. For this challenge we had to follow a sketch but there is a twist to it. The twist is that you have to cut out and pop up your stamped image. How stinkin' cute is this adorable little boy?? I just want to pinch his chubby little cheecks. PK-790 Boogie Board Max. What made me laugh is when I went to the PKS website to get the link info I realized that I colored him almost exactly the same colors as he was on the package without even realizing it!! I picked my papers first and then colored him to match the paper. As you know I hate wasting anything. I had this little strip of paper that I had cut from the DP and simply flipped it over and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the SY-901 Hillbilly Holler Set 2. To ink it up I used Tim Holtz Vintage photo on the edges of well...practically everything. Max is cut out and popped up with some foam tape. I hope you "Pop in" and play along with us this week!!


  1. How brilliant is this card!! I'm just in love with your sand dunes!! I would NEVER have thought of doing that. You clever girl you!! LOVE his surfboard with that flash of gold! Your project is just SO cool dude!! Ha Ha!

  2. Lisa your card is wonderful! I almost chose this stamp too! I was going to have waves at his feet. I actually made a different card with the pig and feed sack, but it was too similar to a card I had made for a different pk challenge. Hope you get a break from all your cooking and have some playtime for yourself. I just received my MSS that I ordered and cant wait to play! I love all the projects you made with MSS. Congrats on winning!
    Love and hugs, Janice
