About Me

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.

A friend of mine just found out she was pregnant after trying for many many years. I wanted to send her some Preggy Pops to help with the morning sickness. So I came up with this simple generic card that could either be for a boy or girl. The challenge to myself this week is to see how many cards I can do from one sheet of 12X12 paper. I hate cutting a piece of paper for a project and then just putting it aside. My scraps alone could probably go further than Ameila Earhart did! Most of my cards I use my scraps but for my last Rocker Boy card I cut a new sheet to fulfill a challenge. I found all the paper I used here in my scrap bins as well as the grass! When I stumbled upon that I said what a fun way to fulfill the challenge!

This card is for the Friday Sketchers challenge I used the grass and the stitching on top to represent the torn pages in the sketch.
