About Me

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.

New!! Blue & White Linky Party@ CDD

Hey everyone!  The first linky party in 2015 has started at Craftin Desert Divas.  The theme is Blue & White.  First thing I thought of was a baby boy for some reason.  

I have been wanting to do this pop up card that I got from Silhouette for some time.  I added a 3D Rattle as a shaker embellishment and filled it with some little buttons and gem.  I used my SAY IT BIG stamp set for the "Congrats" sentiment and my Snips & Snails stamp set for the It's a Boy sentiment as well as the ones on the inside of the card.  The little stars on the inside block are from the Halloween WITCH CROSSING stamp set. 


  1. Both cards are simply amazing I love the block pop up card and the shaker it is so hard to say which one I like most Have a wonderful New year. Have a blessed day
