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.

Hope...Breast cancer card

I found out that a woman that I volunteered with was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I was very touched when I found out that she said that I have inspired her and hearing my story has helped her get thru this tough time in her life. So I wanted to send her a card with some inspirational sayings and some words of hope, strength & friendship from me. I started to post this last night but I kept on looking at the card thinking that I just don't like it..something is off. SO this morning I woke up and broke down the card and took off the elements that I didn't like. I am posting both pictures but the one I didn't like is the one with the yellow flower. I am sending her the one with the flower in the upper corner and the word HOPE in the center. The adorable Breast Cancer bear is from Doodle Palace.

I made this card to fit three challenges.

  5. Hi Lisa
    Both cards are beautiful both in the thought behind them and the execution of the making of them. I too prefer the 're-make'. A delightful image - thanks for the link. Thanks also for joining in with my challenge at Allsorts this week.
    Take care
