- 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.

Happy Father's day To my grease monkey
My husband is a true blue grease monkey. He rebuilds anything he can get his hands on. So for the twins first Father's Day card to their Daddy I made him a manly simple card that I hope he would like. I tried to make it look covered in oil and dirt like he is most of the time when in the garage..LOL!
The best thing about this card is I made it out of scraps...my favorite thing to do!! I used the Diamond plate embossing folder on my Cuttlebug for the matting and used my new CTMH Large Chocolate Alphabet stamps for the "DAD" sentiment. I added some racing ribbon across the card for just a little touch. I cut out a wrench off of my Indie cartridge on my Cricut and Wallah...I was done!
