- 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 Sweet "Unusual" Valentine box
I still managed to use my scraps on this one!! Of course with the exception of having to use new cardstock to make the box. I think the green DP is a bit dark for a valentine but I am still trying to stick to my New Years resolution and use my scraps.
This is a cute box that I made using some DP scraps and some cardstock pieces along with my Hello Kitty cartridge for the Cricut. I used pop dots to elevate Hello Kitty for a bit more dimension. Inside I will put some homemade truffles. It will hold aprox. 4-6 depending on how big I make them. It was a really quick and simple "unusual colored" box for Valentine's Day.
