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.

Peachy Keen Spring Blog Hop Day #1

Hello everyone!  I am super excited to be part of this awesome blog hop. If you came here from Gigi's blog then you are right on track.  If not, you can start at the beginning by clicking HERE.  I am sure you have read  about the awesome prize being offered on this hop.  You need to leave a comment on each blog along the hop in order to be in it for the prize.  One current or past DT member on this hop will be picked to chose a comment from their blog to win an awesome and I mean awesome prize. 

If you win you will receive the April Face Assortment stamps, The Moodies in ALL THREE SIZES.  This prize package is valued at $50. We won't know who it is until the blog starts so that is why it is important to leave a comment on each and every blog.
Want more?? On Thursday, April 25th the second day of the hop will be held with more prizes up for grabs so don't miss out on the chance to get your hands on some Peachies!

I am very excited to now own some markers to color with.  I invested in some Spectrum Noir markers.  Okay not some I got them ALL..LOL An early birthday gift to myself.  Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to learn how to use them for this hop but I had so much fun using them I couldn't stop.  Now I have a very far way to go before I know how to use them properly but I am having a blast learning.


This is my very first project that I did with my markers. I used the PKS June 2012 Stamp of the Month kit for this project.  



For my next project I wanted to make a little THANK YOU set to have on hand, an easel card and a gift box.  This one took me many many tries to get stamped the way I wanted it to look.  I took the adorable mouse from PKS-350 Colby and Jack  stamp set and stamped him first.  Then I masked him off and stamped some extra chunks of cheddar cheese around him.  The cheese wedge is from SVG ATTIC's Aged to Perfection set.  I took one slice from the wedge to use it as a gift box to go with the card.  I thought it would be cute since it matched my image.  I used PKS-298 Grampa's Pajamas background stamp to jazz up the yellow card stock on the cheese. I just love having background stamps in my stash.  







And last but not least I made this card up quick.  I decided last minute to round the corners and it is something that is irking me as I stare at it while I do this post.  I forgot to round the DP before I made the card first!!  I tried to remove the center image that I popped up with Stampin' Up! dimensionals but man those suckers stick good.  It started to rip so I decided to leave it as is. The butterflies and the sentiment come from the freshly released 
April SOTM kit. I originally colored the butterflies to match this paper other paper that I loved.  But when I started to put the card together I decided on going for a much simpler approach and changed direction all together. 


So there you have it, you have all seen my very first, second and third projects I did with my spanking new markers.  I am so excited to have them if you can't tell already...LOL I have some AMAZING, AMAZING Peachy Keen DT members work to study to give me some guidance in this whole new journey I am trying out.  I feel like a kid again coloring..

  27. I just got Spectrum Noir Markers myself not too long ago. They have a little learning curve on them but that's so far is just trying to find the right paper and ink combo that works good together. That's the hardest part so far. I've just been using the Michaels brand paper and some distress inks. Just let the ink sit and dry for a good while before coloring and it works so far so good. I think the project that I made on my blog is maybe the 2nd project ever I made using my Spectrum Noir Markers but I like them alot as well!

    I so far have all the 6 pack colors except 2 and my birthday is coming up in 2 weeks so maybe... i'll get some new ones to play with..

    Don't give up you are doing fantastic.

    Love you projects by the way very creative.

    Hugs
