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.

Goin' Buggy at the Sisterhood

Hello World!! I have been without internet for almost 5 days.  I feel like I have missed out on so much!! lol  It is funny how dependent we become on certain things.

Well to celebrate my entering back into Cyber World, I made some projects to go with a new challenge that starts today over at the SISTERHOOD OF CRAFTERS.  Our Sistah' Terri is hosting the challenge and has chosen a bug theme. She is asking that we create a project with a bug on your project.

 I bought this paper probably 7-9 years ago and figured it would be about time I used it. For the stamps I used my Craftin' Desert Divas JUST BUG-Cause stamps along with their matching DIES.  The snail and the caterpillar are my favorites...never thought I would say a bug was cute!  To color them in I used my Spectrum Noir Markers and some Stickles.  I turned some scraps into two tags using my CDD Tag Essential die set along with a matching card. 

 The yellow square which all the sentiments are one is a die included in the Tag Essential set. I added a red heart sequins for a pop of color and love from CDD's LOTS OF LOVE SEQUINS. 

I sure hope you come on over to the Sisterhood and get buggy with us!  Have a great day & HAPPY CRAFTING!
