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.

Home for the Holidays - Doodle Palace

Here is an image that is due to be released at Doodle Palace this week. I just love it!! I can feel the warmth coming from this card :)Okay it is late so I am a bit wacky but it does have that cozy feel to it and makes me look forward to warming up by the fire. I added lots of bling to the card by using glitter and stickles. I also popped up the image with pop dots for more dimension which you really can't make out in the photo. This is a wonderful image to own!

I entered this card into the following challenges:
