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.

Days Gone By ~ Stampin for the Weekend

I made this card for a friend who is going thru some pretty rough times right now. Since it is a horrible situation I didn't want to make a glitzy, loud card.

This card is for the Stampin for the Weekend Challenge #11 ~ Days Gone By.

I used DCWV Vintage cardstock and Stampin Up! Garden Collage stamp set. I scalloped the corners of the actual card after I took the picture. I tried to capture that in a photo but it just didn't come out right. The whole card just doesnt' photograph well...maybe it has to do with the Photographer that had no sleep!
