About Me

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.

PaperTrey Ink Card

Papertrey Inkis having an amazing contest this week. It brings back some great memories....Paint By Numbers!! I loved doing paint by numbers (maybe because that was the only way I was able to paint :). They are coming out with these adorable acrylic paints that come in the cutest little paint cans.

We had not only to follow a sketch but a color palette. It goes by the first letter of your blog name. I was lucky and got some awesome colors!! Because I discovered it so late I didn't have much time at all. The contest ends tomorrow and we are expecting another 8-12 inches on top of the 24+ inches we already got! So who knows if I will even have power tomorrow. With that said I had tonight to come up with something. They made it really easy giving us all of the dimensions. This is what I came up with. Unfortunately I finished at about 11:00 at night so the pictures are pretty bad..sorry about the glare!
