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.

Stamptacular Sunday Bonus Challenge ~ Build-A-Card

Oh the fun I had playing this challenge!! I love the idea of the "scavenger hunt" challenge. This challenge was for Stamptacular Sunday's Bonus Build A Card challenge. We had to visit 10 blogs and each blog held an item that we had to include on our card.

The items we had to include were:

#1 The color blue
#2 An oval
#3 Something matted
#4 stamped image-used the dainty little butterfly from my Peachy Keen PK-249 Honey Hugs & Bugs set
#5 2 more colors other than blue
#6 Ribbon
#7 Flowers - used my Prima flowers
#8 a charm
#9 Sparkle - did this with Stickles and putting a little bling in the middle of my flowers
#10 a friendship saying - the minute I saw this Raggedy Ann & Andy popped into my head. I know you can't see this in the picture but the saying is raised with mounting squares.


  1. Great card, I'm so please you enjoyed our build a card fun.
