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.

SVG Attic Ornament bag & PKS Blog Hop Day #2

Hello Everyone! I wanted to share with you this adorable quick and easy bag from SVG ATTIC that I made. To make this, I used the ornament from the newly released Holidy Cheer Gift Boxes collection. These would make such cute gifts stuffed with anything from note cards for teachers, candy, stocking stuffers, maybe a cute way to deliver a "wish list" to Santa or filled with bakes goods. I thought it would be cute to actually hang on the tree stuffed with goodies for Christmas morning. To decorate the front I used the newly released PKS-15 Oh By Golly! stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps. I just adore this set because there are soooooooooooo many possibilities you can do with it. Guess I have been in a Vintage kinda mood lately!
