- 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.

Quick scrap card...Surprise Surprise!
Okay...This card was made from 100% scraps! Yipee!! To bad the card is so small that it didn't use up so many. I am dying to start using more paper since I literally have 1,000's of pieces to use. I decided last night that I was going to take a picture and put it on my blog to show my hoarding issues in regards to paper...But I am not sure I can fit it into one picture! And you know what even if I took the picture I am not sure you could tell the amount. Each pile probably contains atleast 100 pieces. I need to sit down one day and organize it all but I am afraid to because then I am going to want to use it!
I am embarrassed to post these but here is a glimpse into my paper world. The sad thing is I didn't get the bins of paper on top of my cubbies or the cases of scraps. What is even sadder is I know every piece of paper that I have!! LOL I keep telling myself...NO MORE PAPER but then I see new paper and think to myself..I GOTTA HAVE THAT!! Good thing I don't do drugs or gamble...I would end up on that show INTERVENTION..but then again maybe I will end up there anyway due to my hoarding craft supplies !!
Onto my card! When I saw the challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday to use Blue & White the first thing that popped into my head was snow. So lucky for me I had some snowflake paper and some other various blue DP paper. Unfortunately I realized after the card was done that you can't see to much of the snowflakes :( I followed the sketch over at the
Allsorts challenge blog. The challenge over at Saturday Spotlight was "Bigger is Better" so I used a small sized card so my image really popped out. And to finish it off I followed the Thank you card theme over at the Everybody-Art challenge blog.
The stamps I used are Peachy Keen PK-328 Snowman Winter Greeting Card Set and the sentiment was from Autumn Leaves. I colored in my snowman with my Prismacolor pencils, added some applique, Stickles and buttons and I was done. I know it is simple but the more I look at it...the more it grows on me. I sneezed just as I was placing the sentiment stamp over the card and it changed my position so it is a little off..OOPPSS
Well I am off! I am in the middle of making some homemade Ciabatta rolls for my Cajun Roast Beef that I have in the oven. My house is smelling soooooo good right now! We are expecting to have a HUGE snowstorm coming our way so I am preparing for that. Do you know how I plan on spending my time being snowed in?? Eating and scrapping...somehow with that said a Snowstorm doesn't seem so bad!!!!
