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 Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope everyone is getting pampered like they should. Unfortunately my hubby has to work so I will be flying solo but I will have my little ladies with me. They will surround me with alot of love and throw in loads of dirty diapers just to make things interesting! LOL!

Here is a quick card I came up with yesterday. I used a Cuttlebug folder that I never got to use before. I also used three different stamp sets. I used the hearts from Close to my Hearts Childhood Portrait, the birds are from CTMH Alphabets and the sentiment is from Peachy Keen's PK-260 Sweetie Pie Peepers. I left it generic so it can be an "anything" card. Oh and Yes!! This is a scrap card!!!

I followed the color theme over at The Playdate Cafe and the sketch over at Papertake Weekly. I also designed the card to fit into the
Polkadoodle, the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and the
The COrrosive CHallenge blog.

I am off to butter up some homemade English Muffin bread that just came out of the oven....hhhmmmm that is how I am gonna spend my day with fresh buttered bread! What a life!
