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.

Stamp Something Sketch Challenge & Our Creative Corner Triple Play

I created this card to fulfill two challenges. The first challenge was for http://stampchallenges.blogspot.com/2009/07/sketch-something-challenge.html > Stamp Something's Sketch Challenge. We had to follow the sketch given and have fun doing it. Next I used this card for the OCC/Our Creative Corner's Triple Play Challenge http://stampchallenges.blogspot.com/2009/07/sketch-something-challenge.html . We had to use three embellishments that they had listed. I actually used four - eyelets, fibers, ribbon and buttons. I am not sure how to put a link to their site other than the way I have it here..sorry!

Supplies used:

Peachy Keen PK-243 Potted Happy Flower
Embossing Powder
Bazzil cardstock
