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.

Take off!!!

Everyday for almost the past two weeks we have been hit with storms and dreary weather.  So it inspired me to make something cheerful to help me look on the brighter side of things.  I fell in love with the Air Force Penguin file from KaDoodle Bug Designs websiteHERE.  This set can go in so many different directions.  Super, super cute and useful.  I decided to use the stretch card by Lori Whitlock which I purchased from the Silhouette Online Store.  Such a fun shaped card and perfect for this file I thought. The clouds are from the Pearly White Fairies collection.  I welded the rays of the sun for the shadow of the sun since I needed it to be joined considering it would be hanging off the fourth tier/back of the card. You can open the front flaps on either side to write your message.  Hope you like it because it was really fun to work with.  The paper is from Echo Park's Little boy collection except for the clouds, that paper is from Teresa Collins.  And make sure to stop on by KaDoodle Bugs online store..today is the last day of the sale which is an amazing 70% off a purchase of $25 or more!! You will get lost in her store like I did.  I fell in love with her files not knowing what ones to get first!
