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.

Snowflakes are kisses from Heaven

Good morning everyone!  Today a new challenge starts at the Sisterhood of Crafters!  Our Sister Diane is hosting the challenge and has come up with a very fitting theme for this time of year! 


She is asking that everyone makes a project with a snowflake somewhere on it. 

 I had recently purchased some new embossing folders at my local craft store by Darice.  There was this gorgeous snowflake one that I picked up and couldn't' wait to play with so I choose that.  When I think of snowflakes the first thing that pops into my mind is the color (in various shades) blue.  In my paper stash I have had this pad by DCWV forever that fit perfectly.  I embossed the card stock then inked it up.  Next I cut out a sentiment from one of the sheets of paper and matted that, added some rhinestones and ribbon and I was done! 

I hope you come on by and play along in the snow with us at the Sisterhood!
