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.

One of my FAV PKS sketches!

Good morning everyone! Today it is dreary and rainy here in PA so hopefully my card will cheer up Mother Nature! This is a card that I made while in WI visiting with my PKS family. I used scraps for the background. I just fell in love with that paper (Called HOT COCOA) the minute I got there. I couldn't bare to waste any of it so I decided to use it for this sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch that Angelica whipped up for you all:

And this is what I came up with:

I used the acrylic snowflake from PKS which you can find here PKOA-11 Snowflake B. It is a card and gift in one since they can take the ornament off and hang it on a tree if they wante to. For the adorable face I used PK-520 Wintery Face Assortment.

In case you haven't seen them yet you have to stop on by and check out all the adorable new dies and matching stamps. They are to adorable for words. I don't know about you but I love dies and the face that there is a matching stamp is just a bonus.

Kathy posted a great video showcasing them all and you can see that HERE.
