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.

Easter Egg Hunt Layout

I got these adorable Easter/Spring stamps from Peachy Keen about 2 weeks ago and I have not had a chance to play with them. They are just too cute!! I also bought this Easter paper ions ago and have never used it. I am trying to get ready/organized for the remodel and I am coming across all of these little goodies. I am sure if I dig far enough I will come across Hoffa or maybe even Amelia Earhart!!

This was an Easter Egg Hunt organized at my sons' school. This was his first and sadly his only field trip. I was like all giddy to take him and of course came prepared with my camera. I cringed when they told everyone they could only pick up a certain amount of eggs. I was just picturing the complete meltdown that my son would have when he realized he couldn't have all the eggs he could manage to get his little hands on. But much to my surprise he was actually okay with it! I guess never under estimate your toddler!

Supplies I used:

Peachy Keen PK-258 Easter Bunnies - for the eggs
Peachy Keen PK-265 Bunny Dolls for the Easter Bunnies
Peachy Keen PK-266 Duck Dolls for the adorable duckies, baskets of eggs and the flowers
Liquid applique
Making Memories DP & chipboard letters
Martha Stewart grass punch
Copic Markers
unknown scraps
Karen Foster wooden sign
