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.

Better late than never... I hope!

Okay so last week I volunteered from sun up to sun down literally working 14-16 hour days. By the time I got home I was so tired that I just showered and went to bed. Only to get up at 6am the next morning and go back at it. Well thank goodness it is all over with now but in the mean time I never noticed that my
Peachy Keen challenge never went up!! I was horrified!! So a week late here it is. I do hope you play along so I won't feel so bad and it will help ease the guilt trip!

But the challenge was a sketch and here it is. But wait there was a twist! You had to use twine or floss in addition to the sketch.

And this is my take on it.

I used PK-628 Funny Spider and the papers were called Black Bird.


  1. Totally worth the wait! It is perfect. The inking and patterned papers go together perfectly. Hugs- Glora

  2. very cute ...spooky but cute image...great colors


  3. You did such a great job of this card and lucky I am late hopping around all the DT because I wouldn't miss this one! The paper is awesome and I love your colouring of the spider. Perfect job. Love it. x

  4. So cute! Your spider looks feisty:) I love the drippy punch you used under your sentiment!
