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.

Summer Fun!

When I saw the challenge over at Cuttlebug Challenges I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use. I just got some new CTMH Best Friends Forever paper pack and these had PERFECT colors to use! I did this LO for my friends album. I grabbed a bunch of summer pictures from the stack she sent me to set the theme for the challenge over at Papertake Weekly and used the sketch over at The Scrappiest. This is such a great blog filled with such inspiration!! I just love it because it gets my jump started on my LO. I can stare at pictures forever not knowing what I will do with them. But once I saw this sketch, BOOM I was rocking and rolling. I actually cranked this bad boy out while the girls were napping. Probably the fastest LO I ever did all thanks to the sketch, the theme and the colors all picked out for me ahead of time!

I also used my Cuttlebug and Nestibilies to cut out the tags.
