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.

Get Well Soon

Everyone knows it stinks when you are sick and you just feel miserable.  If you can put a smile on someones face who is sick I would say that is a job well done!  I fell in love with these adorable ducks from Too Cute By Jessica's RAINY DAY DUCKS file. If you click on the picture of the complete file it should take you right to the page if you would like to see/purchase it.  TCBJ is having an amazing sale right now.  You can get 90% off your purchase of $50 or more.

I have so many ideas to do with it so I decided to tackle my first one!  I made a Get Well card that holds a travel size pack of tissues. The sentiment I used on the cloud is from Craftin' Desert Divas SIMPLY SAID stamp set and the adorable face is from Peachy Keens PK-482 Winter Wonderland Face Assortment.  The paper I used is from DCWV The Spring Mix Stack.  You may not be able to tell but I popped up the ducky with some dimensionals from Stampin' Up!

I am going to add this as well to the Craftin' Desert Divas Red, White and Blue linky party. 

** Enabler Alert ** Right Now Craftin Desert Divas is having a sale.  If you enter the code JUNE you will get 20% off your order.  The sale is good until July 7th! 


  1. How fabulous! I LOVE the little kleenex box. I took advantage of the sale at TCBJ too - crazy good deals - but did not get that one. Next time! Thanks so much for playing with us this week at Craftin Desert Divas Red, White and Blue challenge. Hope to see you again soon :)
