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.

Craftin' Desert Divas - Christmas Linky Party

Good morning! I am here to share with you two projects I made for the Craftin' Desert Divas Linky Party that is currently going on. 

 I made these treat bags that hold dark chocolate Hershey Kisses. There was going to be a window of sorts so you could see some of the contents but I didn't like how that looked (they are dark purple).  I used the Winter Treats stamp set along with the Tag It stamp set. And of course I used the free SVG's you get when you buy the stamp sets. You can find Winter Treats  HERE and Tag It HERE.


  1. Aww these little treat bags are so cute!!! I like the cute branches you added too!! Great idea!

  2. Love this Lisa! The little touch of green is perfect. TFS :)
