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.

A Peachy New Challenge!

Hello there! It is time for another Peachy Keen challenge. I started another project for this challenge but it was more involved than I thought so I will have to share it with you at another time. It is defintely a fun one and useful to boot!

Here are the deets for this challenge:

This is the sketch we had to follow

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Julie - http://juliescraftyspot.blogspot.com/

This is what I came up with using PK-321 Snowmen, Greetings & Globe stamp set. The minute I saw this set I fell in love and had to have it. It is just to cute and the possibilities are endless with this set. I cut out the hat and popped it up with some foam tape but it is hard to see that in the photo.

Next I did a quick card using one of the stamps included in the new release from my fellow DT member Lorie Souther's stamp line. The stamps are called Country Bumpkin and can be found for sale on the PKS website HERE. For my card I used the adorable CB-07 Deputy T.O. Snow. I had these rustic metal signs in my stash forever (gulp atleast 8-10 years). When I was making this card I thought of them right away and thought they would be perfect for this card. On the strip of pape on top I used my Market Street Stamps Woodgrain Background stamp.

I sure hope you stop on by and play along with this great sketch challenge. We all love seeing what you create!
