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.

Star Wars card

Good afternoon everyone!  We have a birthday party to go to today and he loves Star Wars so I came up with this to attach to his gift. 

I used a Tag Gift card holder by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette store and enlarged it to a nice size.  I wanted it to stick out on my gift bag.  I used Yoda from Too Cute By Jessica's GALACTIC PALS set.  The sentiment I used came from Peachy Keens PKSC-30 June 2014 Stamp of the month set.  I thought the face from PK-1357 Sweet on You Face Assortment set would look adorable for Yoda so I went for it!  I used my Spectrum Noir markers to add a bit of color to his face. I changed the insert and took out the little notches that would normally hold the gift card and added a base to it.  I will have my girls fill it out before they give it to him.  I tucked in the ribbon behind the card just for the photo but I will have that tied around the gift bag.  All the paper came from WE R's Hip Hip hooray line.
