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.

Baby Boy Block Card

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.  I finally am feeling like myself again so I am determined to get caught up.  Not only on cleaning but in my craft room.  I am trying to do things that I have pinned or bookmarked.  I found this super fun and cute Block card on youtube by Papercrafter45.  It is so fun and simple to make.  The coolest part is it folds flat so you can ship it. I will add a tag to the back so I can write a message to the person I am sending this to. 

The papers I used are by Graphic 45's line By the Sea. The adorable puppy is from KaDoodle Bug Designs Salty Dogs file that you can find HERE. And right now there is a sale so the file would only be $2.63! The sentiment I used is from Craftin' Desert Divas SNIPS & SNAILS stamp set which you can find HERE.  They are having a Red, White and Blue linky party so I am gonna link this up to it since I think it fits the bill.
