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.

See Cleaning can be productive!

I was tiffed at the hubby so I started frantically cleaning my craft room.. I know shocker! I came across these scraps at various places in my room and had thrown them on the table. When I went to the table I saw them all together and I said OMG! these are perfect for the challenges I wanted to do!!

The blog hop over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge was fun. I typically do not do blog hops due to time contraints and especially with this one we had just one day. But i really wanted to do it and after finding all the supplies to make this card work I felt like it was a sign...LOL! I am keeping every body part crossed that I possibly can in hopes of winning!!! I will also mail my card in for a chance at the extra prize.

I was so happy that I was also able to get this card into the challenge over at
SPCC. I love to enter into her challenges but I didn;t think I was gonna make it!
