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.

Peachy Keen Challenge # 6

Okay things have been a bit crazy for me here. I have been bombarded with family and friends wanting to see my girls..don't get me wrong I love the company but I just want to SCRAP!! I didn't get to do any challenges last week and this week I had an hour today to squeeze a challenge in. My sister's birthday is coming up so I decided to use some paper that I thought I would never use (challenge to myself!) and make up a quick card and this is what I came up with. It is hard to tell but the cupcake is the front of the card and it opens up to various Happy Birthday sayings on the background paper.
