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.

Sneak Peak - New Release

This is an image that is due to be released tomorrow from Doodle Palace. The stamp set also comes with several sentiments that coordinate with the little rocker boy. I can make girly cards until the cows come home but boy/man cards are so hard to do because you don't want to put to much ribbon or flowers. I really think he is a cute image and could be used for almost anything. I left it generic so I could add it to my card stash and pull it out for a birthday, congrats card, or heck practically anything!

This card fits 2 challenges:

Stamp something's challenge The challenge here was to use the color brown and in different shades if you could.

Stampin' for the Weekend's challenge This was also a color challenge to use brown, orange and green.
