- 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.

All 6 wrapped into one
When I started this card I had teal and gold paper as the background so I colored the stamp to go with the paper. Well for some reason I can't stand the color teal. It just makes my eyeballs crazy. With me if I am working on a project and the color shade is off just a hair I sit and struggle with it for hours until I either change the color or I give up on it. This was defintely one of those cases. I changed the background paper to make me feel a little better but then the coloring was off. I couldn't believe I was getting so stressed out over a darn little card....so I left it as it is. I may add a little more to it down the road but I need to walk away..
I got this free Digi Stamp from Lily-Boo's Boutique.. For the coloring of the stamp I used my primacolor pencils, Gamsol, blending stomps, and stickles.
This card covers 6 challenges:
Paper Popsicles card sketch challenge.
Stamp Something Charmed CHallenge. I used a butterfly charm hanging off the ribbon
Kaboodle Blog Challenge. This challenge was to use a digi image
Digitual Tuesday Challenge#18. This challenge was to use a digistamp and add some bling. The charm and the gold stickles and some "bling" to my card
High Hopes Stamp CHallenge #42. Here we had to use the color cold somewhere on our card.
Secret Crafter. This challenge was called "Cute as a bug". I used various colored butterflies on my card
