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.

Feeling Blue?

This image is due to be released this week over at Doodle Palace. These type of cards are excellent to have in your stash!! Since it tis' the season to be sick that is!!

I haven't been in my craft room for weeks and boy do I miss it! You would think if I haven't been in it that it would be clean but that isn't the case I am ashamed to admit! I am one of those messy stampers :(

I didn't have much time for this card and I had to do part of it with one of my little ladies on my lap. I added a question mark after feeling blue but not until after I took the picture.. Once I saw the color challenge over at SPCC I knew it was perfect to pair up with this stamp (hence the reason why I came up with that sentiment!). I used my Prismacolor pencils to color the images. I printed out the image twice and trimmed the head out of one of them and added it to the other image with some pop dots for dimension. I also used my Stampin Up inks to match with this weeks challenge, added some Prima flowers, sewed around the DP and used some various alphabet stickers for the sentiment.
