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.

The Pink Elephant - TPE Challenge #23

This is my submission to the Pink Elephant's #23 challenge. This was a color challenge and you had to use red, light blue and dark blue. Since I just had twins I need a bunch of Thank you's to send out to people who gave me gifts. So for the challenges I am challenging myself to use scraps and to make them Thank you's when possible. That way I kill two birds with one stone! I love using my scraps because it makes my mind work harder..and these days that in itself is a challenge.

I used various left over scraps of which I am not sure of the brand name. I also used:

Prima Flowers ~ Sprites 2
Spare Parts denim brads ~ by the Paper Studio
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-200 Cow Peeker and Face Package
Cricut cartridge ~ Beyond Birthdays 3 1/4" for the Thank you
Mounting squares ~ I used mounting dots to raise the Thank you mat as well as the cow for a 3D look.

I had a blast once again using my Peachy Keen Stamps!
