- 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.

No DP Valentine Day Card
Shocker...another Valentine's Day card made out of scraps..I know, I know! But you know I really like this one and it was really quick and easy. I found some scraps that fit my card perfect. I broke out a stamp set that I never used before but bought ages ago by Close to My Heart called Adorable Background stamps. Since one of the challenges I had to do Love without hearts I added a Key charm to symbolize "A Key to my Heart" type of thing. This really doesn't have to be just for Valentine's Day.
The challenges I submitted this card to are:
Pixie Dust Studio'sBorder challenge. I used my Martha Stewart Lattice punch.
PaperPlay'sLOVE themed challenge
SPCCcolor challenge. I didn't have the Rich Razzleberry so I used the closest color I had and stamped it on pink cardstock which lightened the color a bit so it wasn't so dark (I like it :)
The Pink ElephantValentine's challenge.
Stamptacular Sunday Love is in the Air challenge. The catch here was that you couldn't use any hearts.
DCRU Love CHallenge
Well I am off to get prepared for yet ANOTHER snow storm! We are expecting about 18 inches on top of the 25+ that is already on the ground...YIKES! I am also working on a yummy project that I will post soon...
