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.

Two little piggies in a tub

Good afternoon everyone!
There is a new sketch over at Peachy Keen Stamps and of course you will want to enter to win the awesome prize. I cut some DP in 2 inch squares and loosely glued that to a bottom mat. I then sewed it to make it look quilt like and when that was done used my Nesties to cut out the top note shape. I added a lighter rim around it by nesting my Nesties so I would just get the trim. Loved how it looked but somehow I must of leaned on something and got a bunch of ink and goo on it so I tried to distress it to hide the fact. The adorable stamped image is called PK-202 Piggy Tubby Time. This image just makes me smile because #1 it is just to darn cute and #2 it reminds me of my twins in the tub. To make the bubbles look a little more "bubbly" I added some liquid applique and then some CTMH Liquid Glass to the tub and the bubbles. I was trying to smudge some "dirt" on them to make them look even dirtier but it didn't really come out as planned so you will just have to in vision it for now! LOL The image is just dangling there like a tag so technically you can use it as a tag and write something on the back.

Hope you come and join us for this challenge. Love seeing everyone's different takes on the sketch. Off to go melt in the summer heat..uggh I wish!
