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.

Brown and Orange Linky Party at CDD

Good morning everyone!  There is a fun linky party going on over at Craftin Desert Divas right now.  The challenge is to make a project with brown and orange as the main colors.  

Since my twins are in Kindergarten this year I wanted to make a few cute gifts to give to their bus drivers, aids and of course teachers.  I made these adorable demi cups and filled them with a tea bag and some Hershey Nuggets.  I really liked the natural look of the turkey so I embossed him with brown ink and added little pops of color. I think they make adorable little gifts that you can give to people to let them know that you were thinking of them and how you appreciate everything they do.

Supplies used:

Stamps: Let's Get Stuffed by CDD
Paper: Authentique
Mug: My Scrap Chick
