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.

My SSC cards :)

Here is another two simple scrap cards (SSC) that I pulled out of the wreakage of my scrap paper.

The first is a super simple Thank you card that I made to fit the Color Throwdown challenge to use Eggplant Envy, Baja Breeze and Certain Celery.

For the next card I needed a baby card for the Simon Says New Baby Challenge to give to a friend who doesn't know if she is having a boy or a girl. I found a circle with a scalloped edge in my scrap pile and realized that I could use it for the
Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge. I added the circles that I had cut out the other day with my Stampin Up circle punch to complete the sketch and embossed them on my Cuttlebug. I followed the color challenge on the Color Createblog. I used my Peachy Keen Baby Monkey Stamp which I stamped twice and cut out the umbrella to make it 3D to fit the Pixie Dust Studio challenge.
