- 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.

Lots of stuff in a small package!
I managed to get 4 challenges in this pint sized card! I know, I know it's to much but I just kept on going!
The card was based off of The Corrosive Challenge to use a Kitty on your card. So I broke out my Peachy Keen PK-607 Cat-in-the-Jack stamp set. What you can't really see is that I used ribbon with little brown paw prints on it. I know that doesn't really go with the Halloween theme but I figured it could be Kitty Cat paw prints leading up to that adorable pumpkin!
It covered the Stampin' for the Weekend color challenge, Kaboodle Doodles charm challenge and Whimsy Stamps "Sew, Sew, Sew" challenge. When you go to Whimsy Stamps Challenge blog read about Paige. It's a heartbreaking story that hopefully the people in "blog land" can do something about. You can purchase a stamp that is named after her and all of the proceeds will go to her account, donate to the account personally as well as sending her one of your handmade cards! I have been on the receiving end of such love & support and I know how much it could life one's spirits!
