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.

BRRR...Wishing you a Beary Merry Christmas






Getting in gear for Christmas with this card....well I am trying to anyway!! I used the image from Doodle Palace to complete this card. I printed out the image and trimmed it, colored it with Prismacolor pencils, accented it with liquid applique and then popped it up with mounting squares. I cut out the snowflake in different layers, colored it with DecoColor liquid silver then covered each layer with glittler & finished it off with a gem. What you really can't tell in the photo is that I alternated with blue glitter and white glitter on the different layers. I also embossed the mating with of course my newest edition to my ever expanding craft room...my Cuttlebug.

Doodle Palace I went with the primary colors
