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.

Day #1 of the SUPER duper cute Craftin' Desert Divas Sneak Peeks!!

Today is Day 1 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 CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES as well as the new TAG DIES.

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

I created the card base by welding some images together.  The image and sentiments are part of the new stamp set we are showcasing today.  I colored the adorable little "flash" using my Spectrum Noir markers and some Wink of Stella pens.

For the center of the card I used one of the images from the FREE Superhero badges file from Too Cute By Jessica.  See below on how to get this set free.
