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.

May Flowers

I don't know about where you are but I thought the saying was APRIL SHOWERS...bring May Flowers!  it hasn't stopped raining.  Then one day it is super gorgeous and I have the central air on and next time I have the heat on!  Not sure what is going on with Mother Nature but she needs to make up her mind!!! LOL

Over at the Sisterhood of Crafters we have a new challenge for you all.  The challenge is to create a project with flowers on it (has to have at least one flower).  I pulled out my PaperTrey Ink stamps which I haven't used in ages.  

For this card I grabbed an extra die cut from PT's Mat Stack dies.  I stamped the huge bunch of flowers from their Jar Fillers set so it will just show up in the corner and highlighted it with my Copics.
 This one was made with an extra SVG cut that was to big.  I cut off the top and bottom to fit on the card and I simply created this card with whatever I could reach on my craft desk.  The flower is a sticker from Basic Grey and the background stamp is ALL MESHED up from Shabby Chic Stamps.  Sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink.
