- 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.

Up Up and AAWWWWAAAYYY!!
Isn't this image adorable??? I got it from Pollycraft. I had so much fun with this one. I was going to add a sentiment but I decided to leave it blank. It could be "Sending you my love" or birthday, get well wishes ANYTHING really!
And of course I used my scraps which makes me love it more! I am about to dig into my DP packs and sheets. I feel like a shark circling its prey!
I made this card last night & this morning to fit a few challenges. I wanted to keep it simple making the image the focal point. I followed the color theme of Pink, red, brown and white over at Colour Create and the sketch over at
Get SKetchy. I printed it out twice, cut out the balloon and colored it with my Prisma pencils and used lots of dimensional pop dots. I sewed the mats, and the balloon panels as well as across the balloon.
The other challenges I submitted this card to were:
C.R.A.F.T. digi coloring challenge
Saturday Spotlight"Around the House" challenge. I used baby wipes (gotta lot of those!), needle & thread and cotton balls for the clouds. The baby wipes I used to make my sky by rubbing the wipe on the ink pad.
Bee Crafty"Sew Cute" challenge.
Corrosive "sew it up" challenge
Cupcake craft"Keep it Simple" challenge
