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.

Be Inspired with Craftin' Desert Divas

I was honored to be a Guest Designer at Craftin' Desert Divas this month. All month I featured a newly released stamp set called BE INSPIRED.  I had so much fun working with these and they stamped perfectly! 

For my last project I made two box cards that I thought fit the sentiment perfectly. I used the Just Breathe and Hang In there sentiments. Love the fact that these fold flat for mailing.  I think these would hopefully lift someone's spirits.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Be Inspired Stamp set - Craftin Desert Divas
Paper: Echo Park - Sweet Day
SVG Cuts - Box cards

Happy Crafting!
