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.

PK Glitz Ink - Sketch Time!

Talk about getting down to the wire!! Geez! I used the basis of the sketch contest going on over at PK Glitz for my layout. They have a great prize to win. I don't have any of their products but I would love to try them out so I hope I win..giggles... Sorry that the pictures are crummy butI just stink at taking them!

The challenge over at The Pink Elephant was to do a summer themed page so I picked a fun picture of my friends daughter playing in the sprinkler/hose. I added some texture for the challenge over at Delightful Sketches by using MS glitter, sewing, and using Ultra thick embossing powder of the water drops and on the hose. The ribbon also has some texture to it as well as the 3D sticker.

I left some areas on the right side of the page for her to journal on. Of to eat some lunch...I'm starving and it's not even 11:00am yet! Guess that is what happens when you are up at the crack of dawn!
