- 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.

Sending down Angel kisses for Valentine's Day
When I first saw the Cloud 9 series over at Whimsie Doodles I just wanted to cry. The first one they saw was a little angel boy. I was gonna buy it but I needed a girl. When they came out with Leah I knew I had to get it. My thing was to send out gifts for Valentine's Day to all of the Aunts & Uncles from my kids. Usually socks, candles and of course edible goodies. I haven't done it since my kissed passed. But when I saw these...well first I cried then I bought them! I plan on sending all of my family some Angel kisses from heaven for Valentine's Day...okay...now I am officially crying!
The card didn't come out exactly as planned since I was trying to keep it manly. This one is going to be for Daddy from his little Angel in Heaven. For my family I will do cards with both of them on there in a way that can be mailed easily since it doesn't look like I will be getting out anytime soon to mail them from the post office. I distressed the paper with some chocolate chip ink and a nail file in attempts to make it more manly looking. I have two pictures of the card. One without the heart in the upper left hand corner and one with it. I am not sure which one I like better....what do you think? Take it or leave it?
I made this card based on the sketch over at Cards for Menchallenge. My sentiment is a bit large so it doesn't stay all the way to the right as it does in the sketch.
I added some Tinsel glitter to her wings for that feathered look, colored Leah with my Prismacolor pencils and of course added some Stickles.
