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.

Trick or Treat........

Good morning Y'all! I wanted to share with you a fun way to dress up some Treats for Halloween.  

In our neighborhood we participate in the "Booing" your neighbors where we leave treats on the doorstep of one of our neighbors with a note that they have been Boo'd.  It's usually a basket of some sort of goodies and you are not supposed to know who it is from which is part of the fun.  However people always know when it is from me since I like to dress up my goodies in some way.

I had a package of these Halloween colored gumballs which I repackaged and decorated with the adorable CDD digital stamp called IN STITCHES.  I don't normally do zombies but I couldn't help myself with this one, it was too darn cute.  I opened it up in my Silhouette software and did some duplicating and overlapping to get the layout I wanted. Then I used my IN LINE DIES to cut the paper and layer it with the stitched rounded edge for a finished look. I stamped the sentiment from Ghostly Greetings one one of the FLAG BANNER dies.

I hope you enjoyed my quick way to dress up an ordinary bag of gumballs and repackage them into something cute!

Thank you for stopping by and
