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 out of this world...

Good morning y'all! I am popping on here today to share a project I made for my turn at the daily post here on the CDD blog. I just adore how fun the May release is to create with! Life has been a "little crazy" to put it nicely so I have fallen behind in my craftin unfortunately.  I hope soon to be able to catch up!

To make the card base I cut out two solid white layers with the PICTURE FRAME die as well as another one in my designer paper for the front.  I scored one of the white layers to turn it into a card base.  I also cut out another layer of acetate to put on the outside of the card.  I nestled a stitched frame die from the Fancy Frame die set in order to make it into a shaker card. The space background was created using my Copic markers as well as some of my Tim Holtz distress inks.

The sentiments came from the ADVENTURE AWAITS stamp set, and the main images came from the coordinating accessory set called ADVENTURE LAND. I used the new FLAG BANNER dies to stamp the sentiment on. I am in love with the color combo in the new COMET sequins so I of course had to add those!! Lastly I added a few of the stitched stars from the BANNER DIES set to finish it off

Thank you and have an AWESOME crafty day!
