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.

Something to Crow About - Doodle Palace!

This is an image from Doodle Palace's Fall digi stamp set that is due to be released this week. I picked the crow because I have a friend that is in love with crows come fall time. The edges were suppossed to be sewn as well as the title but wouldn't ya know it, my darn sewing machine is jamming and I have no idea how to fix it!!!ARGGHHH!!!

So Last Minute Lisa (the nickname I gave myself :)) had to think of plan B. It would of looked so nice sewn but there is always next time. I can't wait to make more cards using the rest of the images...Stay tuned! But you can get a hold of them this week at Doodle Palace online store.

The card covers the challenges over at:
