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.

Throwback Thursday

Good morning!

I am popping in here today to share with you a project I made for my Throwback Thursday post at Craftin' Desert Divas. I used Simply Said and Tissue Time stamp sets.  I embossed the sentiments on the watercolored background on the front of the card. I made a template of the background and cut it out on watercolor paper.  Then I used my Tim Holtz Distress ink refills to do some watercoloring...or my attempt at it that is! lol This card has lots of layers so it is pretty heavy.

I replaced the flowers on the tree with some of CDD's Pretty Petals sequins.  If you haven't done so already, you need to stop on by and check out their HUGE selection of sequins they now carry.  Lots of fun and different styles. I used some Bisque Liquid Pearls for the centers of the sequins. The paper I used for the inside is from Graphic 45.

Have a great day, and Happy Crafting!
