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.

Just for fun!

Crafting always picks up my spirits so I broke out some of the sequins that were just released over at Craftin' Desert Divas as well as some of their stamps and dies to make these two shaker cards.  I think, just maybe I am getting addicted to making shaker cards!! They are so much fun!!

  These cards are a little over 5" wide.  I used lots of foam tape so they stick out as well.  I colored the images with my Spectrum Noir markers and added a touch of Glossy Accents.

I used the elephant from IT'S ALL ABOUT ZOO and the sentiment is from SAY IT BIG on this boy inspired card. The sequins I used were SHINE BRIGHT and DEW DROP which I mixed together.

I loved this elephant so much I had to do a girl version of it as well.  Again I used the elephant from IT'S ALL ABOUT ZOO as well as SHORT & SWEET TAGS and SUGAR & SPICE .  The sequins I used was STAR POWER.

One of the things I picked up over there is their Acetate Shaker Bundles.  I got the one that you got two packs of sequins with, but they do have a bundle available with no sequins.
