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.

You won't want to miss this MEGA prize!!!

Boy do we have a super prize in store this week over at You surely will want to make sure you play along for this challenge.

First I will start with the details and then move onto the mega prize! The challenge is a sketch.

Here is my take on it:

I just got my grubby inky 10 fingers on some brand new DP (to me anyway) that I couldn't wait to use by My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy line. I had this picture sitting on my craft desk of my daughter Gianna looking up at my Mom and thought it was so sweet. For the faces I used PK-640 Princess Faces. When I was doing the sentiment at the bottom I wanted to give the plain cardstock some "Pop" factor or design so I stamped the green cardstock with my new Sweet Lace background stamp and the blue cardstock with PK-102 Small Polka Dot print. I realize now that I stamped the faces reverse of what I wanted to do so I may eventually try to fix it but for now..OH WELL!

So do you want to know what you can win by playing along this week???????
DRUM ROLL PLLLEEEASSEEE.....................

Yep no jokes here! If you are the winner this week this bad boy retailed at $130 will be on its way to you!!! And to share the wealth we secured a coupon code for our followers to use at AV Thing In Its Place the sponsor who has graciously donated such a wonderful prize. Here is the direct link to the craft rack that we will be giving away so you can get all of the information to it Wall Mount Storage rack with baskets. The only hitch is that it can only be shipped to the Continental US (Hawaii, Alaska will incurr shipping charges).

I myself have this same exact rack and I absolutely love it!!!! It was a lot larger than I expected. The top rack holds all my stamps that I store in CD cases wonderfully and keeps them within arms reach. On the bars I have rolls of ribbon and craft paper which beats being stacked up on my desk or leaning against the wall. The best part of it is that it is STYLISH and trust me I need all the help I can get in that department. I suggest you stop on by AV Thing In Its Place and browse around. They have such amazing storage solutions and furniture to make any crafter whine with delight. Who wouldn't love to have that craft desk and storage unit in their craft room????? Now the coupon code/badge can be found in the upper right hand corner of my blog as well as the Peachy Keen blog. The code is good on anything in the craft storage category. At checkout you need to enter 2angels-10 as the coupon code. The prices on the website reflect shipping and trust me you will be happy that they do because the rack I got was almost 30 lbs! I will be posting pictures shortly of my rack that I received (having technical difficulties at the moment with my camera...translation my twins got a hold of it..need I say more!).

There is two chances to win on this sketch challenge so don't forget to stop on by and play along with us this week to get your chance to win!!!
