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.

Christmas Blessings

Good morning y'all! Today starts a new linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  The theme is Christmas.  That is an easy one, especially since most of us are already in (or will be) into the Christmas spirit of making cards etc. 

For my card I used a couple of the new sets that were released this week.  For the background I used the Across the Border stamp set for the snow background.  I stamped and embossed several lines of the snow stamp flipping it to make the pattern a bit different.  Then I used some Tim Holtz distress inks to give the sky some color.

Next I put my scor tape on some white cardstock and ran it thru my Cuttlebug using the hill die from Outdoor Landscapes die set.  I peeled the tape off and sprinkled my Snow flower soft on top to give it that fluffy snow look. The street lamp is from the Rudy stamp set which I colored than cut out and tucked it behind one of the hills.  

To get the adorable birdie wearing the hat from the Chilly stamp set, I first stamped the hat on the paper then masked it with my Post It paper.  Next I stamped the Chickie from the new Chickie stamp set and peeled up the post it paper and wahla! Easy peasy way to Winterize that adorable Chick!  I just adore that bird. The sentiment came from the Tis' The Season stamp set which I embossed in black.

I hope you come on by and play along with our Christmas challenge over at CDD!.
