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.

The Perfect Pair

I am a far cry from being "pear"fect but I am trying to practice more with my Prismacolor pencils. I was very happy with the way the coloring came out on the pears, I think I am starting to get how to use the pencils. Unfortunately the coloring gets distorted when I took the picture but it looks really good in person...and that's alot for me to say!

I used my Peachy Keen PL-239 Faceless Fruit stamp set. I wanted to make this a "To the Pear-fect Pear" card but it wouldn't fit so I just simply put the word "Love" ...

This card is for the The Fresh Batch and the Color Throwdown challenges.


  1. It's just adorable! Nice coloring! Thanks so much for playing the Color Throwdown!

  2. I love your coloring on this! Great job!
    Thanks for the nice comments on my blog...too funny about the Froggy paper...you know what they say about great minds! :) I don't know, there's just something about that paper that makes it fit with that frog! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  3. I love this card. I think your colouring is perfect. I know I still practice and practice, and each time it gets a little easier! Your already there!
    Have a great weekend,

  4. Your coloring is fantastic! I really like this card! Thanks for playing along with us at Stamps and Smiles!

  5. I think you did a fantastic job coloring the pears! Your card turned out beautifully :) Great job with the CTD challenge.

    I just read your story in the "About Me" section and my heart sank...then lifted. I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet son and daughter, but thrilled to hear you just gave birth to twins. I pray you continue to find scrapbooking (and papercrafting in general) therapeutic as you document their lives and their sister's. God bless, Lisa.

  6. Very pretty!!! This is a great image to use for these colors!
