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.

Snips and Snails

Good morning!

I wanted to share this adorable gift box I made in a baby boy theme.  My sister is having a baby boy so I have boys on my mind!  This would be cute as a shower favor or a holder for a small gift. I put socks in this one but I plan to make another one and put rolled up Onesies in there.  I think these would make adorable Baby Shower decorations!!

I added some stitching to the rocking horse with my white gel pen.
The paper is from American Crafts My Baby paper pad.

I used Snips & Snails stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas which you can find HERE.

There are so many other things this set can be used for, it is not just for Babies!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Crafting!!
