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.

Inspirational, Doodle and Cute Card Thursday

Here I did a card that covers 3 challenges using very little scraps which I was excited to get rid of and my Martha Steward lattice punch. Since I had company I didn't think I could get anything done but I sneaked into my craft room when no one was looking a couple of times :) that's why this one is simple!

Doodle Palace Blue, Green & Bling challenge ~ I have some bling brads and the paper has glitter on it in several places (hard to see in photo)
