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.

Watercoloring with Distress Inks

Good morning! Today starts another linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas.  The theme is "WATERCOLOR".  I love my collection of Tim Holtz distress inks so I decided to try using them to watercolor with. 

I started out with my FLOWERS IN BLOOM stamp set, using a masking then embossing method a few flowers at a time.  When that was done I used my reinkers to watercolor these gorgeous flowers in.  The sentiments came from WISHFUL THOUGHTS.  

This is my attempt at a CAS card.  I hope you like it, if so come on by the CDD blog and play along with us.  Let me see your Watercolor creations! I love getting inspiration from you all!
