About Me

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.

Here's Orson!

I got this free Digi Stamp from There's Magic In The Air Celebration challenge. Nina is giving the image away free for only I think 3 more days so you may want to stop on by and snag it before its gone!

I am on a mission to use all of my scraps up before I tap into anymore paper. I actually have a blast seeing what I can come up with. On this card I wanted to keep it simply and let Orson be the main focus. He was lovingly colored in with my Prismacolor pencils which I blended with Gamsol (I got it from Peachykeenstamps.com). I then accented him with Cotton Candy Stickles.

Orson just puts a smile on my face and to me that is worth a million bucks!
