- 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.

CupCake Birthday wishes
One of my high school friends birthday is Monday so I wanted to hurry and make her a special card. And why not have it fit a challenge? Right!
This card is for the Peachy Keen Pink & Brown Challenge. We also had to use ribbon and some glitter. I used silver stickles for the candle. I am thinking of adding a bit of glitter to the gooey chocolate icing but I don't want to cover that scrumpish looking dessert up! I used the PK-241 Happy Birthday Kids stamp set for the sentiment and the cupcake. I wanted to keep the colors soft so I colored the cupcake in with my Prismacolor pencils and dusted the white background with a little Stampin Up! chalk. Another one of the reasons why I picked the cupcake is that we were both talking about how hard it is to diet and we desperately need to go on one!!!
SOrry about the pics but it was hard for me to keep the card closed while standing up.
