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.

Thank you very "mush".....

When I got ahold of the new images that will be released tomorrow from Doodle Palace I was sooooo excited that there was a mushroom in there. Don't ask me why but I have always wanted to do a card with a mushroom on it. Since fall is my favorite time of the year I did it in fall tones. I shrunk the mushroom down to 30% & then 20% in size. I cut them out, colored them in with my Prismacolor pencils and mounted the little 'shroom with pop dots. Since I finally got my sewing machine fixed I couldn't resist.....!

I submitted this card for four challenges:

Mojo Monday Sketch challenge

Digital-Ink Co Fall Colors challenge

Cupcake Craft "Thanks a bunch" challenge

Rosie-Dee's Coffee & Cream challenge
