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.

Whimsical Scraps #23 & Mojo Monday #98 & Spoon Full of Sugar #63

Hello All!
Since time is not a friend of mine lately I need to get as many challenges in with very little time. I made this card for:

Whimsical Scraps & Bugs challenge #23 ~ color challenge using the chosen colors of green, sky blue, chocolate, pumpkin and white/cream. These colors can be seen in the cardstock, designer paper and the prima flowers

A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Floral Fantasy - using something floral on a card. There are flowers on the paper and I also used Prima Flowers.

Mojo Monday #98 ~ Sketch of the month challenge.
