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.

Hope this makes you smile.......

Good morning y'all!  Today is my day on the CDD blog to host the daily post. I was so tired of the cold weather I wanted to change the pace and have something to look forward to!! lol

To make the background I stamped the whole background with the circle stamp from the Across the Border stamp set and used clear embossing powder on it.  Then I used two tones of Tim Holtz blue inks and 2 of green to make the colors on the background.  I ended up putting glossy accents on all the circles to make it pop up with a pretty glossy look.  

I colored up several of the large daisy flowers from the HOME SWEET HOME stamp set then cut them out and layered them across the bottom. I added some glossy accents as well as some Wink of Stella markers to make them sparkle.

Next I colored up a butterfly from the JUST BUG-CAUSE stamp set and popped it up above the flowers. I used the banner die from the MIX IT UP DIE set to stamp the sentiment from the GARDEN CUTIES set. To finish the card off I added some of the new Matte Doodlebug GIRL ASSORTMENT sprinkles.

Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a great day & HAPPY CRAFTING!



  1. Especially like the Daisies and the way you added the shine/shimmer to the card. Thanks for stopping by & commenting on my giftbag with the Strawberry Shortcake M&Ms. My daughter saw the Target ad with the M&Ms and hinted to me that she would like the Strawberry Shortcake. Hubby is getting Almond M&Ms. Will let you know how they taste after we sample them. Have a BEE-utiful day!
