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.

Home is where the heart is!

A friend of mine just bought her first home so I wanted to make her a card. She was very excited that it was brick so I knew I had to do a brick house. I stamped the house out and cut out all the different layers and mounted it with pop dots for dimension.

Supplies used:

Close to my Heart Emporium paper for the clouds
Close to my Heart Around the Block stamp set
Stampin up! Ink
Copic Markers
Prismacolor pencils
MS glitter for the windows

Challenges I submitted this card to:
