- 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.

Challenge #2 over at the Sisterhood!! Come on by!
I can't believe we are already on Challenge #2 over at the Sisterhood of Crafters challenge blog!! We had a great week and thank you to all of the "sisters" who played along with our Ireland challenge. Well this week we have a Hidden Potential challenge. I chose a heart punch (well 2 actually) and turned it into a flower. I used some spring themed scraps which made me very happy!! I had to trim the blue paper a bit but I couldn't bring myself to throw it away so I used my MS border punch. I also did two layers to the flower and used mounting dots to give it dimension. I used a smaller Stampin Up' heart punch for a third inner layer. To give my plain green card stock a little "kick" I used my Peachy Keen Extra Small Dots stamp with Stampin Up' Ink.
I submitted this card to these challenges:
