About Me

My photo
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.

Let's Shake it Up over at Craftin' Desert Divas

Good morning y'all!  Today starts a new linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas with a "Shake-It Up" theme.  I have been wanting to make a card like this for awhile now, and thanks to my Misti I was able to make it happen!  

I embossed a Zebra print background that I have had for years (company went out of business) and then inked it up with some Tim Holtz distress inks. I cut out the base with the new PICTURE FRAME dies and matted that on a normal card base.  Next I used my Stitched-In Circle dies for the scalloped circle as well as the base. To get the distress look on the background I used some of my Tim Holtz reinkers mixed with water.  The adorable zebra is from WILDLY CUTE, the balloons are from the PARTY DIES set and last but not least the sentiment as well as the BIG die cut is from the newly released WISHFUL THOUGHTS stamp set and WISHFUL THOUGHTS WORD dies. I did use a mixture of CDD sequins called BLUE HEARTS, PINK HEARTS, a few from SHERBERT as well as some that have been discontinued.

I sure hope you come on over and play along with our SHAKE-IT up linky party over at CDD!

Happy Crafting!
