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.

Throwback Thursday

Good morning! I am here today to share with you my creation that I made for a Throwback Thursday post I am hosting today over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  I choose the adorable TOTALLY TURTLE stamp set to feature as an oldie but goodie! lol The presents I used on this card came from another older set called ALL ABOARD

To achieve this scene I used Post It note paper along with a masking technique. One of my favorite paper pad CDD carries is the HIP HOP HOORAY paper pad by Doodlebug so I based the color scheme around that.  To finish the card off I added some Glossy Accents, OH MY STAR sequins as well as one of my new favorite pens the Silver Star Gelly Roll Stardust (to the strings on the balloons).

Don't forget that a new Linky Party started on Monday over at Craftin' Desert Divas!  The theme is Nature's Wonder.  I hope you come on by and play along with us!
