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.

Nature's Wonder

Good morning everyone!  Today starts a new challenge over at Craftin Desert Divas. The theme is " Nature's Wonder". 

To create my card I used my Fancy frame dies on some watercolor paper to create a base. Then I used some Tim Holtz distress inks as well as my Tim Holtz distress markers and Spritzer tool. Next I used my Fancy Stitched Label dies to create some layers.

For the center I used the oval die from Fancy Stitched Labels and used a masking technique to get the arrangement of flowers I wanted (flowers are from  Busy Bees). The sentiment and turtle are from the adorable SLOW stamp set. I also used the grass from the Outdoor Landscaping dies and the label die combined so I could get the grass to fit perfectly in the label shape.
