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.

Today we are showcasing the BIRTHDAY EXPRESS and ALL ABOARD stamps.

Here's what I've created for you.....



To make this birthday gift box I used a milk tote file from the Silhouette store that has 6 little mini milk carton style boxes that fit into the tote.  I then used my Spectrum Noir markers to color in some of the adorable images from the Birthday Express stamp set.  It is hard to see in the picture but I also used some Wink Of Stella markers to add a little Sparkle.  I can't wait for you to see this stamp as well as the others in their entirety.  They are beyond ADORABLE!!!


Be sure to join us tomorrow for another great new stamp set.
