- 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.

3rd post ~ A Scrapbook page!
Since it is getting towards the anniversary of the accident I tend to go into a scrapbooking mode of my two little angels. I started out in the craft world scrapping but lately I have been doing cards etc. But I am switching gears...I try to keep busy pretty much from now until almost the end of the month. After I get thru this I have my little ladies 1st birthday to plan!
Here is a page I did of my hubby & my Son Michael. We took them out to Wendy's after a doctors visit where they got shots. They were soooo good we treated them to junk food!! Great parents aren't we :)
The picture was taken on a cell phone. I got it printed out as a surprise for my hubby. My son is proudly showing off his "Handsome Hair". Mikey used to always ask Daddy...."Daddy give me some handsome hair" which worked out well because I stunk at it!
I based my page around these challenges:
