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.

Want to take a trip to Scotland? Visit the Sisterhood!

This week over at The Sisterhood of Crafters we are taking a virtual trip to Scotland :) The challenge this week is to make a project that has anything to do wih Scotland. I choose this adorable Westie from Delicious Doodles. Teri's images are truly a work of art and it cracks me up that she calls them doodles!! I can't even draw stick figures. If you want to get your hands on some of her images then make sure to take part in the challenge this week because one lucky winner will get their choice of 3 stamps from her store. How wonderful is that!!!!!!

I submitted this card to the
CAS - tastic challenge and the Practical Scrappers. I wanted to keep it simple and have the doggie do all of the work :)
