- 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 "Mask" - 2nd post
The challenge over at the Cuttlebug Challenge was to create a "mask" for our project and add our choice of coloring agent. I pulled out a small tree that I had cut from my Cricut probably last year sometime and never used. I just decided for some reason to use that. I pulled out the first scrap that I found grabbed a baby wipe (with twins..plenty of those laying around!) and used some ink to create my design. I decided to add several colors of green to mimic the leaves on the trees even though my mask was a leafless tree. I then matted the image and put it ontop of another scrap that I embossed with a CuttleBug folder which I believe is called something like weathered stripes or weathered wood. I thought it was kinda neat because it reminded me of the bark of a tree. I followed the sketch over at the Card Patterns blog.
