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.

Craftin' Desert Divas Daily Post

Good morning y'all! I am here today with you all to share my project I created for my Daily Post over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  I couldn't wait to color up these gorgeous flowers from the FLOWERS IN BLOOM stamp set.

 I stamped my main center flower then masked it off with some Post-It note paper in order to get the flowers on the side to look like they were behind them.  After coloring them up I used the larger die from the FANCY STITCHED LABEL die set.  I embossed some vellum for the matting of the image because I wanted to keep it a soft and simple look.  To finish it all off I used the SORRY die from WISHFUL THOUGHTS die set.
