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.

Trick Or Treat

I designed this card with images that will be released tomorrow from Doodle Palace. I used the bears from one set and the pumpkin from the other set. I cut out the Bears, colored them with my Prismacolor pencils, added some stickles and then mounted them with pop dots. I cut out the pumkin (saved the candy corn for later!) and put the Witchy Poo bear sitting on top of it. I embossed the background paper with a huge spider web and then dusted it with Stampin Up' chalk. Added a couple of more embellishments and I called it the day! What I like about this set is that you don't just have to use these images for Halloween. They can be used for a mischievous (that's putting it nicely :) child or misbehaving child.

This card completes the Stamptacular Sunday's 'Tag your it" challenge.
