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 Stamps Celebrate Christmas blog hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome, and thanks for joining the Celebrate Christmas Blog Hop! It is so great to be hopping with current and alumni PKS design team members. 

If you got here from the ever so crafty AMY's blog you are right on track. If not you can start from the beginning by clicking HERE. Or click HERE to start on the first day of the hop if you missed it. Remember you have to leave posts on both days to be entered into the prize drawing.

Peachy Keen Stamps will be providing an amazing Christmas stamp bundle to one lucky winner.  To be entered to win, hoppers will need to leave a comment on each blog post for both days ( Friday & Saturday).  There will be 1 winner chosen to receive the Christmas bundle with a retail value of $150!!! 

For my first project I made these adorable lollipops with Peachy Keen PKK-14 4" winter faces. I love these faces!!! They can be used for soooo many things!  I added a label from Too Cute By Jessica's Lots of Labels set for the background mat behind the face. I made a label using a stamp from  PKSC-23 November 2013 SOTM set and a sentiment from PKSC-11 November 2012.  

Next I found these cute little jars at Hobby Lobby. The face on this little jar came from PK-321 Snowmen, Greetings and Globe set. I used Staz On ink and rolled the jar on the stamp to get it on the jar. I sprayed the lid black to look like a hat and added some snow. I filled it with scented bath salts. I thought this would make a cute little gift!

Your next stop is the extremely talented Vivenne. But hold your jaw before you click on her blog so it doesn't hit the floor!! I have learned the hard way!! Lol have fun and good luck!! You have until Midnight on December 1st to leave comments on all the blogs for both days.

Handmade with love!

Good morning everyone!  Today there is a new challenge over at the Sisterhood Of Crafters.  We are asking you to make anything HANDMADE.  Now that is a topic crafters could have fun with!  I used the ornament from SVG Cuts Silent Night kit along with some Graphic 45 paper to make these.  I did three in different designs.  Now I apologize for the bad photos.  It rained all day and I was hoping to have the lights set up to take the picture but that didn't happen. But hopefully you can get the idea and see them thru the haziness! lol I hope I see your craftiness over at the Sisterhood!! Happy Crafting!
