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.

Here is what I've created for you.....


I wanted to try something different with this adorable Elephant stamp.  I took the little peanut that comes with the stamp and stamped them into a frame of sorts, then stamped the elephant in the middle.  I used my Winsor & Newton Promarkers to color everything in.  I added some Glossy Accents to the Peanuts to make them raised (it is hard to tell in the photo).  I used my Fancy Frame dies to make the layers of the card as well as the banner die from the Party Dies to string across the card.  The sentiment came from the Animal Antics stamp set.
