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.

You are my hero

Good morning!  A new linky party starts today over at the CDD blog.  The theme is masculine so with Fathers Day coming up I thought this would be a perfect card for my daughter (yes daughter) to give my husband. My daughter loves Superheros and she is already saying she wants to be like her Dad when she grows up. 

To start I stamped the mask image sporadically on some watercolor paper then clear embossed it. Next I took some Tim Holtz Distress inks to achieve the color I wanted. I cut it down into several strips of paper in a burst pattern using the "L" shape die from the INLINE DIE set. I loved the stitching that comes on both sides   I adhered that to some black glitter cardstock and cut it again with my picture frame die. I did add a couple of layers of UTE powder to finish it off. 

The word DADDY came from the SUGAR and SPICE stamp set, "you are my hero" came from CALLING ALL SUPERHEROS and the bat came from FRIGHT NIGHT. The center scalloped oval is from FANCY STITCHED LABELS, then I used the stitched oval from BANNER DIES. 

I hope you join in the fun over at CRAFTIN' desert divas!
Thank you for stopping by😘
