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.

Green with envy...lol

Hey y'all! There is a new linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  The theme is "GREEN".  I am not much of a St. Patty's Day card maker and the first thing that popped into my head as money.  In my stash of files I have had this money wallet that I have been wanting to make for some time. For the sentiments I used stamps from the Short & Sweet Tag set found at the Craftin' Desert Divas store. On the outside I used one of the labels to frame the Best of Luck sentiment, then on the inside I used the CONGRATS sentiment.

In my stash of paper I found some pretty green paper from DCWV that fit into the theme nicely so I used that.  The wallet/money card was a file I purchased from Silhouette store.

I hope you come on over and get "green" with us at Craftin' Desert Divas.
