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.

3D Linky Party over at Craftin' Desert Divas

Hello everyone! It's time for a new Linky Party over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  The challenge this time is to make a 3D project.  I make these mini handheld pies and people love them.  I thought I would come up with a cute way to give them as little gifts.  I used the Treat Box from SVG Cuts Santas Sweets.  It was a PERFECT size for them!  

I made a label using the SVG from the CDD Tag It stamp set and the sentiment "Lovin from the Oven" from Baked with love.  I took the SVG from the oven mit (which is also included on the Baked with Love stamp set) and welded a circle onto the oven mit so I can turn the SVG into a tag after I stamped it.  

This went together so quickly and I think came out super cute.

Hope to see you playing along with our 3D challenge at Craftin' Desert Divas!

Happy Crafting!
