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.

Tag your it!

Hello ladies and gents!  I have a great challenge to share with you that I am hosting over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  We are asking you to create a tag..yep that's it!  I love making tags.  I wish I could of made more for this challenge but I didn't want to bore you :)

First I made these two tags with the same design but a different sentiment using PaperTrey Ink stamps and a script background stamp that I don't know who made.  Next I made this tag for the PKS color challenge.  I took a big plastic cauldron and filled it with candy.  Then I added some tissue paper to make it look like "smoke".  To make the tag I used a nestie for the frame and some various Haloween themed paper.  The adorable Frankenstein is from  PKS-634 Frankly....  I distressed it a bit with Tim Holtz Distress inks.
For the last tag I made this one with scraps laying around and my PaperTrey Ink stamp set and Mat stack die.


  1. Beautiful tags...the first one is too cute! Lee-Ann :)

  2. I agree with Frank, I just want the candy too. Great tags and excellent ink work.
