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.

CDD May Release Sneak Peek - GARDEN CUTIES Day #3

Today is Day 3 of the sneak peeks for the May stamp release at Craftin Desert Divas. We have 5 new stamp sets and 2 die sets.

Today we are showcasing GARDEN CUTIES stamp set as well as THE SKY'S THE LIMIT dies.

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

I made this card with the GARDEN CUTIES stamp set we are showcasing today. I just want to pinch that little Sweet Pea's face!! I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color her in. The card is from the Silhouette Store which I changed to meet my needs. The heart is from the  LOTS OF LOVE sequins from the CDD store. I included a picture and a link below.
