About Me

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.

More scrap cards - 3 cards in one post

Okay I am sitting here cracking myself up. I am soooo happy to be using my scraps that I am just besides myself. I made these 3 cards up quick with scraps and images that I had stamped and never used. I have drawfuls of them unfortunately. Figured I would use them up in my effort to get rid of all the stuff I have hoarded.

First was a boy card I did for the Charisma Cardz Fruity Colors challenge. Put together some scraps, an old stamped image of a car from Martha Stewart and added some Stickles.

Second I did a quick card for my niece who is doing really good in school. She loves elephants so I had the perfect DP in my scrap heap and I found an elephant that I had stamped sometime ago but never used. I stamped WAY TO GO on the inside. I know the images don't really match that well but she loves elephants and she is only 6 years old anyway! I followed the sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You.

The last card I did was a simple card for the Kaboodle Doodles Pink, Lemon, Green & plum color challenge. I found this piece of scrap and just stamped a sentiment in the corner. The card is very simple but can be used for a variety of things.

Well I am off again to seek & destroy! You can tell that I don't get out that much..having to much fun with this!
