About Me

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.

Practical Scrappers - Using up some ol' Felt

The challenge this week over at Practical Scrappers is to use some felt, fabric or tulle. My fellow DT members have done a fabulous job as always so make sure you stop on by their blogs to check them all out. I choose to use some Martha Stewart Snowflake felt that I bought on clearance a couple of years ago but never used.

The pictures I choose were of my son playing in only like 2 inches of snow but he thought it was the best! Sadly about 3 weeks later he had passed away so I am glad that he got a little taste of snow!

I used up some letters from Paper Studio which I ran thru my Xyron and topped them off with some coordinating paper. I reran the letter "O" thru the Xyron again and covered it in Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitter.


  1. Lovely lay-out!!!
