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.

My card for Guest Designer this week at Doodle Palace

First I would like to say that I was honored to be a Guest Designer at Doodle Palace Challenge Doodle Palace. I had such a blast making this card. I choose the theme "Cute & Unusual" because of my use of embellishments. When I was shopping at a store that was going out of business I picked up a pair of fish net stockings thinking that one day I would be able to do something with it on my craft projects. When I decided to use the adorable Lion stamp I remembered the pair of fish net stockings that I promised my friend that I would somehow some way fit into my scrapbooking...she thought I was nuts but she loved the finished project! I had cut a piece and how it fit on the card it how I made it work. I am in short supply of Thank you cards since I just had twins so I figured I would make it into a Thank you card. But the best part of it was that I had a blast using something that normally is not used for scrapbooking on my card. So I encourage people to think outside the box and try this challenge, dig deep into your craft supply for that long forgotten item and have fun creating something "Cute & Unusual"!!!
