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.

Happy 1st Anniversary Practical Scrappers!!!

Happy Anniversary Practical Scrappers!! PS is one year old today (in blog years) and they are celebrating all week long with different challenges everyday with the number "1" in mind.

Today over at Practical Scrappers we were challenged to make a project using the "First" of something. I choose to do a layout of my son's first haircut. My dad cut my son's hair and he was NOT happy. It was going good until my dad sprayed him with the water. I normally hate to journal on my pages because my handwriting is so bad but I am changing that. And I am glad I did on this one because I would of forgotten what made him cry! I tried to use a paper pad that I had bought years ago by Paper Pizazz. It is part of my new movement to start using stuff I have!!!!!!
