- 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.

The quickest card ever!
Last night I wanted to do a card but I was really tired. I knew that today was gonna be busy since I have 2 doctors appointments and I have to get ready for my sister coming in to visit tomorrow. I didn't want to miss some of these challenges so I came up with this card half asleep and in about 10-20 minutes. It would of been quicker but I never ever can make up my mind!!
I used CTMH Treasures stamp set and some unknown scrap paper that I have had forever. I cut out some white paper with my Spellbinders Nestie and added some ribbon that I have had forever . Then I mounted it with some pop dots for added dimension.
I based the sketch on Mojo Monday's challenge and the color scheme off of
SPCC color combo #42. I was so excited because I had all of the colors!! I love her color combos because I would never think to use some of the colors she lists together. I then added a "THANK YOU" stamp to fullfill the challenge over at Charisma Cardz.
