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.

Too Cute To Spook!

I had soooo much fun making this card. You know how you have an idea for something and it ends up looking NOTHING like it was suppossed to??? Well this is one of those cards. But I had fun making it.

To make this card I used the adorable images from Doodle Palace. The Frankenstein Bear and the Dracula Bear along with the title "Too Cute To Spook!" came from their newly released Halloween set. I colored the bears in with my Prismacolor pencils. I cut the tree and the headstone with my Cricut machine. I stamped some faux stitching around the sides. There is alot of dimension on this card since I used my pop dots...I love these things!

This card was for the:

Doodle Palace - Orange & Green Challenge

Stamp Something - Favorite Colors or Papers Challenge

Papertake Weekly - Faking it challenge
