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.

Devine Digis at the Sisterhood!

Hello and a very happy morning to you all!  I am happy to announce a new challenge over at the Sisterhood Of Crafters that is being sponsored by one talented artist!  The challenge is to make a project using Digis (digital stamps).  The challenge is being sponsored by Shelly's Images and you can go to her store by clicking HERE.

I just love this image. It is called SANTA'S OLD FAITHFUL and can be found HERE.  The first thing that popped into my head was doing something natural with it.  So I decided to keep it blank to let the artwork shine thru.  I did a print and cut on my Cameo for the very first time with a Digi!! I never did it before nor did I think to!! How beautiful would it be to make a bunch of these tags as a gift to someone? Now I attached it to a card for the picture but the tag could stand alone.  I see a gorgeous box of these tags all done up...a gorgeous handmade gift for someone!

Next I used the digi called PUMPKINS which can be found HERE.  I simply layered it with some scrap paper in fall colors and colored the image in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Her artwork makes it very easy to make a beautiful project!

I hope you get your digi on and come on over and play along.  If you do you will get a chance at winning  a $6 voucher to Shelly's Images.  You should stop on by and see what wonderful digis she has available for sale.  They truly are a piece of art!


  1. Dang girl, your coloring is awesome!!!!!!! Love the bright vibrant colors and I also LOVE the Santa Tag and that you left Santa uncolored. Ok so you added the image and then cut a bunch of tags on your cutter? Right? Or did you import the image and die cut the actual digi stamp? Either way, both cards are awesome.

  2. WOW you have certainly outdone yourself ... these are fabulous!!! Great idea to let the Santa image stand alone on this oh so clever tag creation ... looks amazing! And, your coloring of these pumpkins is R-E-M-A-R-K-A-B-L-E!!! YOU GO GIRL!!!
