- 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.

Happy St. Patty's Day!
I am so far from Irish so was stumped on this one. Is the Leprachan's beard brown or orange? Is his outfit green? His hat black???? Well I just kinda winged it! And what made me happy????
I am going to a St. Patrick's Day party next weekend and I thought I would bring this easel card with some homemade Bailey's Irish creme...ooohhh it is so much better than the store bought Bailey's. I am not knocking Bailey's because I love it but everything is always better homemade!
I cut the rainbow out on my Cricut using the Hello Kitty cartridge. I popped up each layer of the rainbow with mounting squares and added some Stickles. The leprachan, Shamrocks & pot of gold I cut out using the Paper dolls cartridge. The grass was in my stash of scraps so I have no idea what cartridge I cut that out from. The DP was also from my stash of scraps so I am not sure who made it. I inked up the edges with Stampin Up ink. The adorable face on my lucky little guy was stamped with my Peachy Keen PK-490 Everyday Characterface stamp set. I used my Peachy Keen PK-101 Medium Polka dot stamp set to dress up the leprachan's suit. I know you can't see it in the photo but I flocked his beard & hair with Doodlebug's velvet flock. It adds alot when you see the card in person, plus its just a fun little detail :)
