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.

My Western Wedding favors and centerpieces

Hello everyone! I am so happy to finally share these with you.  I made these for my sisters bridal shower.  I used a file called Western Wedding from Too Cute by Jessica.com.  I made the favor by wrapping my sisters favorite candy bar and embossing the paper.  I then did a print and cut on my Cameo to get all the information to show up on the dress.  I made a little folio which contained a note pad, post it note and a pen that matched whatever paper was on the front. The paper was from Cosmo Cricket's Art Angel line.  

Now on to the centerpieces.  I used the boot from SVG Cuts Happy Trails kit and the roses from the Mom's Garden Gifts set.  I inked them all up with TH Vintage photo.  I took the bride from the western wedding and made it double sided so whatever side of the table you were sitting on you would see the bride.  On the back of the boot on the strap I put her soon to be new last name. I also embossed the dresses in two different designs with my Sizzix folders.  We ran out of time so I didn't get to add all the panels to the boots but everyone loved them regardless! Lots of work but she is worth it :)
