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.

Mother's Day shaker card

Hello everyone!  Today starts a new challenge over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  The challenge is to make a project for Mother's Day.  At first I had a fear of shaker cards, actually anything that shaked!! lol But with all the new and adorable SEQUINS CDD is carrying I have conquered my fear. And I am having a blast doing it!!

I found this file in the Silhouette store.  I shrunk it to 75% of it's original size.  I watercolored a background for the layer behind the butterfly.  Then I added some of the TWINKLE sequins from the CDD store.  First I stamped my sentiments using the newly released JUST FOR MOMS (the word Mom) and SENDING LOVE (I'll Love you until the day after forever). 

The top layer was white and I really didn't like how that looked. So I grabbed my Spectrum Noir markers to color the flowers and stems as well as (tried to anyway) creating some sort of background design.  There are lots of layers on this card which I think really adds to it.

I hope you come on over and play along with our MOTHER'S DAY challenge over at Craftin' Desert Divas.

Have a great day and HAPPY CRAFTING!
