- 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 first easel card!!!~~~ 2nd post today
I finally did it! I finally completed an easel card. I don't know why but it totally intimidated me but it was the easiest thing ever!!!
I followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The challenge over at
Everybody-Art was to do an easel card which was what inspired me to finally try one.
I broke out some of my new paper from Close to My Heart and at first I started having some palputations using my "good paper". I then talked myself off the edge and decided it was okay since it was for my Mom :) My friend gave me this stamp from Stampin Up! and I just loved the sentiment so I used that as my main image.
I submitted this card to these other challenges:
Simon Says Vintage w/flowers
Paperplay For a Mom challenge
Stamp Somethingrecipe challenge
Saturday Spotlight Clean & Simple challenge
Allsorts Mother's Day challenge
