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.

My Little Space Boy

I had fun with this one! This adorable little space boy is from Pink Poison and the papers are Basic Grey. I tried to use colors that I normally wouldn't use. Unfortunately my darn cutter does not know how to cut a straight line...I don't get it???????

Challenges that this covered:

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.

Digital Tuesday It's all about the Kids challenge

Pile It On birthday challenge.

I wanted to put something like "I hope your birthday is Out of this World" but good ol' Lisa...I cut out everything and get ahead of myself. Then I realize nothing will fit! Oh well :(


  1. Super card and I love how well your colors match with the BG papers!
    Thanks for playing along at PIO.

  2. Oh, how adorable. I love the sketch you used! And I love the "starry" paper on the bottom of the card. So glad you could join us at digital tuesday.

  3. Great card... I love the bright colours!

    Sweet greetings,
    Saskia :)

  4. Great card, loving that spaceman :)

  5. Love the papers and the image is just so darn cute! I'm cracking up at your cutter not cutting straight lines AND the fact that you put everything together and then realize you don't have room for the sentiment you wanted...it was like I was reading about myself because both of those things happen to me all the time!! :)Great job on the card!
