- 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.

Big dent in my scrap pile (s)!!
I don't know about you but I have such a blast challenging myself to make something with only my scraps. My scrap boxes are out of control and I am on a mission to get a handle on it. I first made a bunch of paper flowers with some of my scraps. Then I found a bunch of ivory squares and scalloped mats in my pile so I thought hhhmmm I will use these. Then I decided to use new stamp that I just got from Close to My Heart. I guess I should of picked out the paper before I stamped the images but it worked out okay cause I had plenty to pick from!!! I would just find a piece of paper and make it work for my card so that is why each card is different. Everyonce in a while I like to go back to my "roots" and just use simply ol' stampin ink. The hardest part or most time consuming was the flowers because each flower has 6 layers. But after all was said and done I was so proud of myself that I got rid of a bunch of my scraps and came up with some cute cards. Then I got sad again and realized how much more I had to go before I even made a teeny weeny dent in my scrap hoardage! So.....off I go to see whatelse I can pull out of my Magic Scrap box! I am a woman on a mission!
I submitted these to the Cupcake Craft "matching set" challenge and the
Cute Daisy May vintage challenge.
