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.

Joyeux Noel Shaker Card

Good morning! It is my pleasure to host the daily post today over on the CDD blog. The idea for this started from a tissue box believe it or not. It was a light blue background with a red bird, I thought it was so pretty so I had to come up with my version of it.


First I used the circle die from the SHAKE IT UP die set.  I cut out the top layer of my shaker card and then a piece of my Xpress card stock which I was going to stamp my images onto.  I inked up the background with some of my Tim Holtz distress ink then dusted it with Perfect Pearls for that shimmer look.  


The birds came from the 2x3 stamp set called FEATHERED FRIENDS.  I stamped them about where I wanted them and then cut out some branches using the URN dies for the birds to sit on. The greenery came from WINTER WONDERLAND dies which I draped around the banner from the MIX IT UP die set. To finish it all off I used the "Joyeux Noel" sentiment from SIMPLY CHRISTMAS.

Thank you for stopping by the Craftin' Desert Divas blog today and sharing a moment of your day with me!

HAPPY CRAFTING!
HUGS,
