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.

A fond farewell blog hop :(



Good morning friends, and welcome to Angelica's Fond Farewell Blog Hop.  If you arrived here from the talented Amy's blog , you are hopping along in just the right order, but if you started here on my blog, then you will want to go back to the beginning to the Peachy Keen Stamps blog, because you're not going to want to miss one single crafty creation.

I personally know that the decision to leave the "orchard " must have not been an easy one for her to make. So I wanted to make a card that would give her some support as well as love. I decided to use a stamp set (PK-225 Happy Flowers and Cheerful Phrases I didn't realize until typing up this post that they no longer sell that stamp set... :( Sorry!) that I picked up when I was in WI meeting everyone in the PKS family last year. 

I had so many ideas but decided to keep things bright and cheery..at least try to anyway. After it taking me FOREVER to actually mail out her birthday card and gift from the last hop we did for Angelica, I wanted to keep this card flat so I could mail it right away!!

What is a hop without some prizes right??? Here is why it is very important to make sure to visit and comment on every blog in the hop. Four (4) lucky winners will get a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the Peachy Keen Store!! Yeppers... $20 bucks to buy whatever stamps your little heart desires. IMPORTANT.... in order to be eligible to win you need to have left a comment on every blog in the hop, including the PKS blog. Four of the designers, past and present will be picked to choose a winner.  You have until Tuesday the 11th to leave a comment. The winners will be picked Tuesday morning and announced on the PKS blog so to be on the safe side I would try to finish and leave all the comments by Monday night!

The exciting part is that we don't even know yet who it will be out of all of us that will be giving out the gift certificates. So sit back, have some fun and help us send Angelica off with lots of love and support!

I want to wish her the very best of everything on her new and exciting journey!!!! Good luck Angelica!

The next stop on the hop is my dear ol' PKS DT member Heidi. You will definitely want to see what she has cooked up.

Below you will find the blog hop order as well as some info and mini Bio on Angelica.

Angelica Suarez has served as the Design Team/Marketing coordinator for Peachy Keen Stamps, for the past three years, and as many of you may have read from her post here a few days ago, she has made the difficult decision to leave her position here at Peachy Keen for a new and exciting opportunity in the printing industry, which is near and dear to her heart. It's a bittersweet celebration for us, as we are sad to see her go, but we know that she will be a tremendous success in this new venture, and we couldn't be happier for her. 
It is for this reason that those of us who have had been blessed to work with Angelica have come together to bid her a fond farewell and share some special creations that we have made to let her know how much she means to us, how much we have enjoyed working with her, how much we are going to miss her and that we wish her all the best.

  39. Lisa you are so sweet - THANK YOU! It was a very difficult decision but I am so glad that the hard part is over. Before I told everyone, I felt like it would be the calm before the storm, but everyone has been SO supportive, and SO kind, that I know how incredibly blessed I am to have worked with and gotten to know each and every one of our team members and many of our customers. What an amazing 3 yrs it has been!! xoxo
