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.

Posting away today!! Hopefully anyway!

Today is my day to have all to myself with no responsibilities!! So I plan to stay in my craft room and just go crazy. Don't be surprised if I have a gazillion posts today but then again I can be so slow!!

I got this image from Nina May over at There's Magic In the Air With Paper Cupcakes. The challenge was to use the image as well as a color theme. I had a hard time sticking to my New Year's resolution (using my scraps)on this one. It certainly is a colorful number.

The sketch is from Lord Have Mercy. The card also was submitted to
the Color Throwdown , Spoon Full Of Sugar's Heart Challenge and the Stamptacular Sunday's challenge. I had to substitute Rose Romance for Regal Rose and Really Rust for Dusty Durango.
