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.

Some new Shabby Chic projects

Good afternoon everyone!  I am gonna keep this brief because I am to excited!! I want to start playing with some new SVG's I got and have a million ideas in my head.  And if I don't act on them soon I will forget them all..sigh! I wanted to share with you 2 projects I made with my Shabby Chic Stamps.

 I saw a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers ions ago on making a corner bookmark. You can find the one that I used by clicking HERE.  I never got around to it until today.  I used my BUNNY LOVE stamp set and some Nesties to make this.  I thought it would be a beautiful reminder that when things are quiet and you are relaxed reading you will know that some-bunny loves you.  It doesn't have to be Easter oriented.
  My adorable little Chick-a-dee also came from the BUNNY LOVE set.  I paired it with the candle from the BUILD A CAKE set and the sentiment from the GREETINGS set.


  1. These are both so sweet! I love the chickie holding the candle to make a wish! So cute!

  2. So pretty. I love the corner bookmark. I'm a big reader... when I have time... and I think that is absolutely perfect.
