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 hit the BEACH!!!!!!!!

Good morning to everyone out in blog land! Today starts a new linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas. I don't know if you have checked out their recent digi stamps but they are BEYOND ADORABLE!!!! I fell in love with this little "hippo" while I was browsing their new digis and I knew it would be the main image for this challenge. Funny thing is, I found out while I was looking for the link to the digi that it isn't a hippo, it's a darn bear!!! Only me!

Anyway, the theme for this 2-week linky party is a "BEACH" theme.  This super cute stamp is called LITTLE BEAR BEACH DAY.  I made her pretty big and had so much fun coloring her up with my Copics. It was really hard to get a good picture of it due to the acetate on the front. 

 I added some Glossy Accents to make certain elements stand out. I turned it into a shaker card with some 

The banner dies are from FLAG BANNER DIES and the THANKS die is from GREETING WORD DIES

I finished it off with the sentiment "for everything" which is from TINY SENTIMENTS.

I printed one out even bigger for my twins to color while I colored mine.  Not only did we get to spend some time together we were able to do that while doing something I wanted to do!! Finally a happy medium :)  

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you play along with our "BEACH" linky party theme over at CDD.
