- 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.

Okay I am sooooooooo ignorant when it comes to sports & know nothing about it! But my newphew at the age of 5 can probably tackle most adults!! Whatever you do don't hold a football near him or he WILL tackle you. My poor cousins little boy was over and saw a football and picked it up. Nobody had a chance to warn him! Next thing you know Richie Goo came out of no where charging and knocked the poor unexpecting kid down! Future line backer for sure...LOL if that is what they are called!
He lives far away but I wanted him to know how special he is even though we don't get to see him that much. He is a sport nut so I figured I would make him a birthday card in the shape of a football. I didn't want to make it fancy in away that he wouldn't appreciate it so I kept it on a kid level. I put the number 5 on his jersey for his age. I had to design & weld the football card in DS. I used Everyday Paper Dolls for my little adorable football guy. Using Peachy Keen's PK-490Character face stamp set and Prismacolor pencils to finish him off. I added lots of pop dots for dimension. This card is soooo much cuter in person but it was really windy out and hard to get a good picture. Did you see what was in the picture???? SUN yes SUN! To bad it is noon and I am still in my PJ's!!! I wanted to get this done before I moved on to something else.
I submitted this card to the Cricut Cardz man/boy challenge and the Pixie Dust Studio Shaped card challenge and the
