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.

The Scrappiest Sketches!!!

Here are two more layouts that I did for my friends albums. I used several sketches from The Scrappiest blog. She has some wonderful sketches and I am going to try to get all the ones for June done. So far I have two of them done. I used Sketch #68 and
Sketch #69. I submitted the one of my friends husband with his newborn daughter to the "DAD" challenge over at
A Crafty Little Place. I am currently working on Sketch #70!! Boy my friends album is going to be done in no time with all of these great sketches!!! I made a huge bandaid on the OUCH one and left it blank so she could do some journaling in it. I have been trying to leave blank spots on all of the pages for her so she could journal.


  1. You my friend are SO clever!!! How neat to make a big plaster (band-aid) to journal in!! You are SO inventive. Love both LOs my friend.
