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.

When life gives you a rainy day.....

Hey y'all! I am back again to share another project with you that I made with my CDD products.  

One of my favorite things to do lately is to get lost coloring. That is where CDD's digi's really come in handy.  I literally made my very own Adult coloring book with a bunch of the images.  I selected several and printed them out so they would be ready for me when I wanted to kick my feet up and color.  

My favorite thing about digis is the fact that you can size them to whatever size you need for your project.

I designed this card to fit the adorable PUDDLE DUCK digital stamp.  I used the stitched oval die from the newly released Fancy Stitched label die set for the sentiment. To distress the tag a bit I stamped it on watercolor paper and inked it up with my Tim Holtz Weathered Wood distress ink and then spritzed it with some water.

When I saw the sentiment from the Rain or Shine stamp set I knew it was just perfect for my card!!  For the scalloped layer with the rainboot design I used my Fancy Frame die set. The Doodlebug Matte Sprinkles in the corner came from the new LOVE assortment, I just love these!!!

Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
