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.

Quick scrap card made during nap time

I made this quick scrap card while the girls were napping. This is one of those cards that you think you can crank out real quick and easy but hit nothing but obstacles. I was going to stamp the eye but embossed it before I could an then I got ink all over my bird so I had to ink it up. But since nap time just ended I just went with it.

I made this for the Townscrapper's Pink & Purple challenge,
the ABC "U is for Unused challenge and the Creatalicious "Wings & Flower" challenge (wings for the bird and flowers on the paper).


  1. Isn't it funny how the ones you think you'll crank out sometimes give you the most trouble! I think your card looks great! So cute :) Love the googly eye.

  2. Looks like happy mistakes to me.. This is so cute. I really like this bird.. She is perfect...:)
