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.

Wish you were here.......

Hello All! I wanted to pop in and share a card with you that I made with a super fun stamp set that is being showcased today over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  It is part of the release that will be unveiled this weekend.  Now I will give you a little wink, wink and tell you that there is a peek of something that you will get to see tomorrow. 

This release is soooo darn fun and super, duper cute!!! You will love it! My biggest problem was trying to decide what to do first.  For this project I busted out my Echo Park SUNSHINE paper pad and some nesting circle dies to make this circle card.  I combined it with the CDD Shaker Bundle pack and Emerald Isle Sequins. The darling little starfish and bucket are from a new line of 2x3 stamps that CDD will be carrying.  The sand that I used I made with the Outdoor Landscaping dies which are also being showcased today. OMG I can't tell you enough how awesome these are!! I cut my circle out and then used the die to make the sand so it fit perfectly into my circle. The sun stamp is from the Sky is the Limit stamp set and I used the matching die set (sold separately) which you can find HERE. Around the edges I used Doodlebug Red, White and Blue Glitter Sprinkles.

For a final touch I used some Glossy Accents on the front of the acetate as well as on the starfish itself.  The only problem then was that it gave such a glare it was hard to get a good picture!!

I hope you come back tomorrow for more sneak peeks of another fun stamp set from the June CDD release! 

Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
