- 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.

It's A Boy!
A friend of mine just found out yesterday that she was having a baby boy. After losing her first child early in her pregnancy she was doubtful she would try again. But so far so good and we are sooo happy for her. I decided to make her a card to congratulate them!
I am still trying to stick to my New Years resolution by using scraps or old stamped images that I never used. All of the paper with the exception of the airplane paper is scraps. I thought this occassion warranted a new piece of paper that was just perfect for this card! I used a new Martha Stewart stamp set last week for the airplane that I never used on my card. I think what throws me off is that the image comes out spotty no matter what I do. When I was cutting out the scalloped background for the circle it got all messed up but I refused just to throw away a good piece of paper (I am sooo cheap and save everything) so I made it work.
I made this card following these challenges:
CupcakeCraft's baby challenge
Papertake Weekly's "New Beginning" challenge
Pixie Dust Studio Pixie's FAB challenge
ABC's "L" is for layers challenge
Cute Card's All New challenge
