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.

Fun and quick shaped card

Hey everyone! My girls were invited to a roller skating party.  I wanted to make a fun card.  I found the Roller Skating Boys from Too Cute By Jessica.  I took the roller skate and welded it on my Silhouette Software to make the card base.  

The card ended up at about 6x6.  I had perfect paper for it from Echo Park's line Little Boys.  The stamps are from Craftin' Desert Divas. I used the tag stamp in the banner style from Short & Sweet Tags stamp set for the matting of the stamp.  Then I took the Celebration WordArt birthday stamp and masked off the other sentiments so I could just get the Happy Birthday part which fit my tag perfectly.  Unusual but fun birthday card!
