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.

LOVE fully revealed

Hello everyone! As promised here is a full view of my project made with a new collection of files released today from SVG ATTIC titled Sweetheart Captions. The minute I saw this file I knew exactly what I wanted to do and even had the colors I wanted in mind. I literally did this during nap time, sewing and all. This picture was taken of my daughter Mia by my friends 14 year old daughter who is absolutely phenomenal at taking pictures. Sweetheart captions is jam packed with all of these ideas and possibilities. It is not just for Valentine's day which is the type of files you need to add to your collection. I am working on another project using the Amour file but I did not get a chance to finish it for this post. Hopefully I will be able to share it with you soon. Here is a picture of all the svg cuts included in this file. You can click HERE to be directed to the page to purchase it.

I also wanted to share with you my project for the new Sisterhood of Crafters challenge. The challenge was to make a project related to snow. To be honest I am so snowed out and ready for some different type of projects. But I did have fun with this one. My fellow talented DT sister Darlene gave me this tutorial on how to make this memo holder. She is just so inspiring and gives me tons of ideas and projects so make sure to drop by her blog. You won't be disappointed!

It was so easy and makes wonderful gifts. All it uses is one 12X12 double sided piece of paper and that includes the pocket on the inside. I did also pair it up with a Post-It note holder using some scrap paper and another Mega Clip bookmark that I made. I made this with all items that I had on hand which was great for me! I hope you do stop on by and play along with our challenge.
