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.

Tag you're it!

I am popping in to share with you my newest creation for the new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  "Tag you're it" is the theme for our new challenge.  We are asking you to create a project based around a tag.  The project could contain a tag on it or the whole project can be the actual tag like I did.

I used a new file from KaDoodle Bug Designs called PND Special Delivery which you can find HERE.  I made the tag from another one of their files using the LABELS set which you can find HERE.   The stamp set I used is from Craftin' Desert Divas called Sugar & Spice and you can find that one in their store HERE. The beautiful ribbon I used was from LoveBug Creations and the paper is from Graphic 45's Botanical Tea line.

I hope you stop on by and play along with us...."Tag you're it!"

All about Babies

Hey everyone!  Today there is a new challenge that I am hosting over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  The challenge is to make a project that has to do with babies.  You can make any project or craft you want as long as it has a Baby theme.  What is even better is that this challenge is sponsored by Craftin' Desert Divas stamp company.  One lucky winner will win a stamp set of their choice!!! So make sure you stop on by and link up to our baby challenge with one of your projects.  I can't wait to see what everyone creates.  This is such a fun challenge!!

I used the SUGAR & SPICE set by Craftin Desert Divas that was recently released.  It is a girl themed set but some stamps can be used for a boy as well.  I made this to hold a gift certificate that I got for a receptionist at my girls school that just had a baby. I thought it was a cute way to give a gift, hope they like it!

I used the booties from Too Cute By Jessica's Bundle of Joy set.

Happy Crafting!
