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.

Day 2 of the SVG Attic Blog Hop

I hope you have been enjoying the SVG Attic hop so far!! I have gotten so many ideas just from my fellow DT members my head is spinning!! If you just stumbled upon this post you can find all the details of the blog hop HERE.

Today I used the adorable tea cup from the Mad Tea Party Kit that I have been wanting to use forever. This kit is the kit that made me want to finally buy a machine able to cut out SVG's. I work in a tea room every so often and my friend loves tea. I thought this was a cute way to package up some of the Christmas tea that we sell and send it to her for Christmas. We live far away so I thought this poem would be fitting.


  1. Beautiful, love the poem and tea cup.

  2. I just love this card the feel the colors everything about it and it makes me want to have a cup of tea (I am a coffee drinker) Super job!!
