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.

Happy Birthday O'Ma






It is my mother n law's birthday this weekend and she now wants to be called O'Ma (German thing). She loves to garden so I used a new set of Stampin up stamps..(well it is not new but new to me!)given to me by a friend. I also got to use my new paper from Close to My Heart and a new stamp from Studio G that I won awhile back. I wanted to put a different image in the center...one that went better with the card but since she is a flower lover and I knew she would like it I stuck with it. I also tried a new technique for me...making a recessed window card. I was sad because I fell off the wagon (using my scraps) but I tried to make it better by using a scrap of white paper to stamp my image on and I used an old tag that I have had for about 6 years...I don't feel like I completely cheated!!! I was taking the pictures at night so they came out pretty bad.

The challenges for this card:
