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.

Quadruple Play!

Okay folks...I have to admit this one thru me for a loop. I started out with such a great idea and then it just went south. I tried to get to many challenges into one card either than or I just had "multiples" on my mind!!! I was going to abort the whole thing but I figured it was almost done. Plus I had to do it with one of my little ladies laying across my lap!!

Charisma Cards Challenge #31 - Sketch This was the main sketch to follow

Colour Create #24 The challenge here was to use pink, orange and green. The DP has little pink, orange, purple and blue elephants.

Creative Inspirations Challenge 20 This challenge was doodling which I did around the sentiment.
