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.

From the Bottom of my heart

This was too cute not to share!! Today there is a sneak peek of the new release over at Craftin' Desert Divas for their January release.  My project was an unscheduled addition but these mice were too darn adorable not to share.  I couldn't wait! Plus I wanted to tell you all about the free file you can get.

First, the adorable Mouse is from  Marjorie Ann Designs (designed by Kristi W.) Baking Up Some Love set.   I used the clipart from the set since I may make a bunch of these to hand out.  Besides I just adore it as is.  I did have to shade in the hat a bit since when it printed the hat kinda blended in.  I used a file from the Silhouette store for the goodie bag topper.  The sentiments on the cookie (LOVE) as well as to the right, "From the bottom of my Heart" are sneak peeks from the new stamp set "Sending Love" that will be released this weekend. I thought it would be cute to add the LOVE stamp to the cookie.  I colored in the heart with my Wink of Stella red glitter marker.  You can't tell from the photo but the sentiment to the right I stamped in black except for the word "Heart".  I stamped that in red then went over it with the marker.  It looks black in the picture but it is red with a glitter to it. I think these would make perfect little gifts for Valentine's Day, or even as a little Thank you gift.

 If you haven't already, make sure you jump on over to the CDD blog.  Each day there is a free SVG to go with the sneak peeks.  All you need to do is leave a comment on the designers blog.  All info is found on the CDD site.

How cute are these Mice??? OMG they are screaming for a layout.  I just think they are so cute.  Actually right now they are on sale at Marjorie Ann Designs website! You can purchase this set HERE.

This is the free file available today when you hop along for the new release.  You can find all the details HERE.
