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.

Celebrate Freedom!

Good morning y'all!  Today over at Craftin' Desert Divas starts a new linky party challenge.  In honor of  Independence Day the linky party theme is Fourth Of July.

For this project I made a little treat bag as well as a card. CDD now carries a huge selection of craft supplies along with their stamps and embellishments. I picked up a bunch of these bag which are the 1x8" treat bags you can find HERE. I found these fun Red, White and blue M&M's at the store and new right away I wanted to use them for the treat bags.  I made a little topper of sorts by using the oval and star dies from the BANNER dies set as well as a sentiment from CELEBRATE FREEDOM.

I broke out my Doodlebug Patriotic Picnic Paper Pad as well as my Doodlebug Red, White and Blue Sprinkles to make this card.  Again I used the Banner dies to make the layers on the card and since it was a fireworks themed card I thought it would be fun to use the Sun Die from the Sky is the Limit die set to kinda give a burst sort of shape.  I turned it into a shaker cards with the help of the Shaker Bundle.  To make it a shaker card I added a mix of the Red Velvet, Sapphire Sparkle and Skyline Steel sequins.

Come on over and show us your Patriotic side and play along with our new challenge!
