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.

Happy Halloween

I don't know if it happens to you crafty people out there in blog land but I had such a hard time with this card. It was suppossed to be something else entirely but I was struggling and struggling. I couldn't believe this darn card was going to take up my precious nap time (girls sleeping YIPPEE!). THen it was like a gift from the heavens. I got my package in the mail with my new Peachy Keen Stamps. When I went to her site I couldn't believe she has this set on clearance. I realized that the main image on my card I didn't like so I ended up tossing it and breaking in my new Peachy Keen stamps. I just hurried up and threw something together because I refused to let such a simple card take up anymore of my time. I just told myself that I will make a REAL card with the Halloween set for my next one. According to the website she only has like 3 sets left so you may wanna take a look. She even posted a coupon code for 10% off your order this week!

The stamps I used were Peachy Keen PK-615 Halloween Candlestick Delight
