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.

Witches Brew

I am expecting company tonight so I am busy cooking, taking care of the twins AND trying to make a card for challenges that end (some do anyway) by tomorrow. As you can see in the picture some of my webs broke and they are only really noticeable when the card is opened but I simply didn't have the time to fix it and Heck I already glued everything down so I wasn't going back! Plus...I never seen a perfect spiderweb before, well okay maybe they are but let's just pretend!

This card fits several challenges which these days is the perfect card for me! I used the witch stamp from Peachy Keen PK-615 stamp set that is on clearance in her store.

The challenges I made this card for are:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch challenge

The Corrosive Challenge - Spooky Times challenge

Stamptacular Sunday - Spooktacular challenge
