- 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.

Santa Paws is coming to town!
I came across this paper that was cut for a project that I never finished (hmmm, imagine that!). I thought it would be fun to use that paper up and get it out of my wonderfully HUGE scrap paper bins. This stamp is a sneak peak from Doodle Palace that will be released Wednesday. It has a cute dog having some Christmas Fun sneaking a peak to see what Santa Paws left him in his stocking. What's great about this stamp, you can cut out the dog and use him for any holiday/occassion. I designed a matching ornament to go with the card. My friend Kim sent me my DoodleBug Crushed Velvet flock that I couldn't find over here so I just had to find a way to use it on this card. I added it to the puppies ears, nose and I even put it on the dog bones to give it a little texture. Used Stickles, glitter and liquid applique on the stocking and Pointsettas. I also used oodles of mounting squares to give the Pointsetta & stocking dimension. The ornament can be given has a gift to hang on a tree, door knob or even around a gift. I went out and bought the Bowdabara thinga-ma-jig since I am severly bow challenged and well...to make a funny story short, I returned it to the store today! Guess I am back to being Bow challenged! Guess it is a good thing that I have slip on shoes!
This card completes several challenges:
Magical Crafts Fortnightly Christmas Card & Ornament challenge
Digital Tuesdays Challenge. I tried to make the flowers stand out on the card and the ornament by adding several layers and curling the edges upwards and downwards.
Digital Ink color challenge
Creative Craft X-Mas challenge
Penny's Paper-Craft Winter Theme Challenge
