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.

Coffee lover birthday card


Hello out there!!!!!! It has been a long time since I have been on here.  Lots going on behind the curtain, unfortunately not all good, however today is a new day!! I did manage to get some crafting in which is making it all better!

Today starts a new Linky Party over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  The theme is COFFEE.  I fell in love with these adorable COFFEE COUPLE digi stamp.  I opened it up in my Silhouette program, cut the cups apart, duplicated the girl coffee cup and then flipped her vertically.  I stacked them so the boy would be in front.  I just love how these digis give you so many possibilities to create.  There is a sale going on a Craftin' Desert Divas until 7/5 which you get 15% off. You need to check out some of their new digis and stock up at those prices. Super, super, super duper cute!!

I used the PICTURE FRAME die to make my card base, only to find out when I took it out of the Cuttlebug that it didn't cut all the way thru due to me using really thick cardstock which was doubled up.  I ended up liking the way it looked so I matted the inside then attached that to a solid piece of black cardstock. I popped up the coffee cups with some foam tape to give it some depth.  The sentiment and the coffee stain came from the GOT COFFEE stamp set.

I hope you come on over and play along with the CDD Coffee themed linky party.

Have a great day, Happy Crafting!
