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.

Mega Clip bookmark

Good morning everyone. I orginally had this posted yesterday but Blogger decided not to cooperate so here it is again.

I came up with this adorable bookmark using some files from SVG ATtic. I used the rosette and circles as the base from the Happy Haunt Halloween file. The hearts are actually the toppers from the Valentines Cupcake wrappers file. I cut several hearts out and played around with the colors until I got what I wanted.

I used some mega clips that I purchased from Staples to make this HUGE bookmark. Also to glue it all together I used hot glue so it is nice and firm and won't get destroyed. I am including a picture of it in my hand which isn't the greatest but I wanted you to see the size of this thing. This will be part of a package I am sending to my niece. She loves to read so I thought it would be a cute gift.
