About Me

My photo
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.

Second Post ~ 2 cards

I am a busy little beaver today..Totally enjoying my time holed up in my craft room while wearing completely mismatched clothes! But they are comfy so that is all I care about!!

My first card is using a Stampin Up! stamp set from 2000 that a friend just gave to me. She didn't put the name on the carton so I don't know what it is called. It was super quick and simple. The challenge over at Cupcake Craft was "Four Legs & Furry" so I picked this stamp. I followed the sketch over at Paper Maniac and used the color scheme to fulfill the challenge over at Die Cuts R Us/DCRU.

On my second card I was able to use up some of my chipboard. I have a rubbermaid container of just chipboard. The heart image I used was from Inkadinkado, stamped in Stampin Up pink ink. I followed the sketch over at Get Sketchy. The
challenge over at Saturday Spotlight was "Teeny Tiny" so I did a small card with a tiny little heart. I made it to fit the Crazy 4 Challenges Valentine theme as well as the no red Valentine theme over at
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle.
