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 - Sketch Time

Happy Friday Everyone!! Today I have two projects for you.

First we have this weeks normally scheduled challenge over at Practical Scrappers and it was to use flowers on your project. I got this adorable new stamp PK-277 Vivienne and Friends from Peachy Keen Stamps. This stamp is just to cute so I couldn't help myself. I have several cards started playing with different set ups with this set....LOVE IT LOVE IT!! I added some of my Prima flowers to the ribbon, We R Memory Keepers paper and my Prismacolor pencils. I just had to give Viv and her dolly matching outfits!

For the next project..... it is Sketch Friday over at Practical Scrappers. Here is the sketch we had to use for the challenge along with my interpretation of it.
