- 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.

All Dressed Up
I am currently doing an album for my friend who is paying me to scrapbook her family. This will become part of a 2page layout eventually but there was just one picture of her daughter all dressed up and I wanted to showcase it. I wanted to have a string of pearls coming out of the shoe but as I ws trying to do it, the string broke and pearls went everywhere!!! So I switched to these adorable adhesive pearls from CTMH.
I cut the shoe out in 3 layers. One was the base and then I cut out two top layers. I used the same DP for the first two layers but I left the base DP alone and inked up the second layer for a darker shade. Then I had this beautiful vellum with swirls and flowers on it and cut that out to go over the darker shade. I had the flower left over from a different project so I figured what the heck and stuck it on. I used chipboard letters from Paper Studio and ran them thru my Xyron. I covered the letters in DP that will be used on the opposite page.
Sorry about the pictures but they were taken late at night.
I followed the sketch over at Priscilla Styles. I added the shoe for the challenge over at Frosted Designs, pearls for the challenge at Pixie Dust Studio. I used flower DP which You can't really see for the matting and a flower to the shoe for the challenge at Papertake Weekly. Over at Cuttlebug Challenge blogspot they asked us to make it personal with a picture. I also used my swiss dot embossing folder on the blue matting which I realize now that you can't see!!!!!!!
