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.

New SHAPED CARD linky party at CDD

Hello everyone! There is a LOT going on today over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  Today starts a new linky party as well as the sneak peeks for this month's stamp and die release. OMG the dies alone are to die for (no pun intended!! lol).  One of my fav's so far!! But I can't say anymore, you will have to tune in today and the rest of the week for more info on that.

The linky party that starts today has a theme of SHAPED CARDS.  I did manage to sneak in an early peek for you all of one of the dies by using it on this card.  Actually I used both of them!! lol  Fancy Stitched Label dies and the Heart of Hearts die sets.  

To create the card base I ran it only partially thru my Big Shot so it didn't cut the top, leaving me with a card shaped base.  I then used my new Doodlebug Sweet Things paper pad which is brand new and now carried by CDD. The hippo I colored came from HIPPO BIRDIE .  The sentiment I made from masking off  the "MORE" from the I LOVE YOU MORE stamp which came from the SENDING LOVE stamp set and added the word "TONS" from the ANIMAL ANTICS set since it matched perfectly. You can tune in later this week to find out my little trick so to speak about getting so many different heart shaped embellishments (both in size and design). Another reason you will love this release!!

I will see you later with my sneak peek using the products being showcased today.  I hope to see you there! I will be in charge of the BINGO games in the Craftin' Desert Divas Gallery.  Hop on over to play along with us for a chance to win some great prizes.
