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.

Quick Quotes & Peachy Keen Blog Hop

Hello Everyone! I hope you are enjoying this wonderful hop so far put together by
Peachy Keen Stamps and Quick Quotes. Peachy Keen Stamps and Quick Quotes have partnered this weekend to bring you incredible creations from both Design Teams. You'll see how versatile our products truly are! If you came here from the ever so fabulous and talented Kim's blog then you are right on track. I was given the Savvy Davvykit to work with. Once I started I just couldn't stop. I used almost my entire kit. I had so much fun with this blog hop and I just went on a roll. I wanted to try to show you how versatile one kit could be so I did several different themes and projects.

Here are a couple of the projects I came up with.

This first one is a criss-cross birthday card that I made into a gift card holder. I used Peachy Keen Tear Bear die and PK-241 Happy Birthday Kids

Here is another criss cross pull out card but I changed the direction. This one was also made by using scraps from the other projects I made and PK-279 Faceless Bugs .

For this layout I used PK-242 Train Set

This sentiment was perfect for me and my life's ups and downs. I wanted to keep this page simple with the main focus (of course the pictures) the quote and gorgeous paper. I stamped some simple butterflies from PK-268 Mother's Day

I had a bunch of little scraps of the Savvy paper left over and I can't bear to waste anything so I came up with this set of 3x3 little cards. There is actually 8 cards in the set but to save room I only took a picture of the one side. The snowmen and penquins are from
PK-335 Christmas Heads. I packaged them in a clear cello bag to make a cute little gift.

Another quick card/gift card holder using mainly the paper as the focal point and to try to mimic the dots on the paper onto the plain card stock I used PK-276 Flower Centers
I hope I showed you how versatile one line of papers can be. The quality of this paper is fantastic and it is double sided which I love. And before I go I just wanted to mention how in LLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOVVVVEEE I am with their Powderpuff Chalking Inks. I don't know about you all but I have used chalking inks that stay wet forever or smudge ruining my project. But these inks dried almost instantly. I would defintely recommend stocking up on them!

I hope you have been enjoying all the fabulous projects from all the DT members so far. To continue on with the list hop on over to Lorie's blog where my projects pale in comparison to her talent. I just love her to bits!
