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.

Altered composition notebook

Good afternoon everyone!  Today I wanted to pop in and share an altered compostion notebook that I made.  I left it blank so it can be personalized.  It can be used as a Christmas Planner or a journal of sorts filled with Christmas Memories.

To make this I used the Christmas Candles SVG File from Too Cute By Jessica. I cut the candles in several layers so they would pop up some.  The smaller one I cut out and layered four times and the tall one I cut out 3 times.  I used some distress inks as well as Glossy Accents on the candles.  It was hard to picture because the Glossy Accents wasn't completely dried when I was taking the pic.  I added a banner from Craftin' Desert Divas Mix It Up die set as a space for it so be personalized.

These would make inexpensive but personal gifts for the holidays! Or a great way to record and keep your treasured Holiday Memories!

Have a great day!
