- 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 "Peachy" Fall Tags!
I started these tags just to have some fun and get my mind off of things. My daughter's birthday is friday and she would of been 6 years old this year! So needless to say I have wanted to get "lost" and not think of things.
I set a challenge to myself to make fall themed tags and I had to use atleast one Peachy Keen stamp on each one. I had two more tags planned but I couldn't finish them because of my sewing machine refusing to work for me. If I get it up and running I will eventually finish the set. I cut the tags out at 5" on the Cricut using my Tags, Boxes & More cartridge. I put together the scarecrow on my Design Studio. I also fit these into Stamp Something w/your favorite embellishment challenge and the Polka Doodles anything but a card challenge. It is hard to see in th photos but I used lots of mounting dots for dimension. These would be great to use tied to some homemade goods, gifts or even in scrapbook pages!
