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.

A very quick layout...

I stumbled upon the Imaginisce challenge blog today. They had a great sketch challenge that I wanted to take part in. The only problem is that it had to be done by today. So I quickly came up this layout using Imaginisce papers that I had in my scrap pile, that made me happy :) The pictures stink because I took them at night while I was half asleep. The middle picture I popped up with pop dots but it is hard to make out.


  1. You've done a wonderful job considering you did it in such a rush... so glad you found the blog! Imaginisce are having a sketch challenge every month and the next one will be up on the blog March 1st.

  2. 生存乃是不斷地在內心與靈魂交戰;寫作是坐著審判自己。..................................................

  3. the pictures don't stink....besides it's the memories and your page is awesome.

  4. great layout! Thanks so much for coming out to play along with us and share some great memories!

  5. Your layout is beautiful! I know what you mean about scrapbooking! I started a group in St.George, Ut. where I live called "Mothers of Angels". I lost my 15 1/2 year old son 7 years ago and scrapbooking has been my total therapy. I scrapbooked before he passed away, but it means so much more to me now!!! I'm so sorry for you loss!
