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.

Just for Kids Linky Party over at CDD

Good morning everyone!! There is a fun new linky party over at the Craftin' Desert Divas.  The theme is JUST FOR KIDS.

 CDD just released a super cute and adorable stamp set called MONSTER MANIA.  I knew right away I had to use it!! The images are just too much fun to color. 

I picked the monster I did because it fit perfectly inside the smaller die from FANCY FRAMES.  One of my favorite colors schemes is from Doodlebug's Hip Hop Hooray paper pad.  I colored my card to match the colors in the paper pad. The layers are the other dies from the FANCY FRAMES.  This die set is definitely one of my GO TO die sets and a must have! It makes a simple layer look so awesome!

I also added the matching Doodlebug Birthday Boy Sprinkles.

I hope you come on by and play along with our "Just for Kids" Linky Party!
