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.

I'm back...(hopefully!) with Peachy Keen challenge #34

Hello Everyone! I am so sorry that I have not been posting and just kinda left everyone hanging. My littlest twin has been sick with 103 fever among other things so I have been a complete wreck. Considering what I have been thru in the past I have been in melt down status. She is finally coming around and feeling better but now I am dealing with teething times two and very little sleep!

I haven't been in my craft room for weeks and I am very far behind. I apologize for leaving several commenters/prize winners hanging but today is my first day back in the craft room and I am trying to play catch up so please bare with me.

During the Peachy Keen blog hop we released the new awesome Cottage Cutz dies by
The Scrapping Cottage and Peachy Keen Stamps. I had people leave comments and give me ideas what to make with the new dies. Well I randomly picked comments and created a few projects with them and it was fun. Well this week over at Peachy Keen Stamps there is a sketch challenge. I randomly picked this comment and tried my best to incorporate it into the sketch. I gotta say it was a hard one to try to put together but I somehow managed it.

This is the comment I picked:

Oh Lisa, all your designs are just too cute, love those yummy little gingerbread men and love the tags. Also love the penguins and the igloo, what a great idea for a card. I just love all of these dies but my all time fave is the froggie, I guess you can guess why. LOL Since I collect froggies, (have for most of my life, LOL) and we have Cows could you do something with the two of them. We have a small farm so you could throw in the flowers also since we have alot of wildflowers around here too, Hee Hee. Sorry to hear of your health issues and hope your feeling better soon. Take Care, Thanks and good luck to all!
Froggie ((Hugs)) Theresa

I laughed because I love frogs also. When my daughter Gianna was born she had these big ol' eyeballs for such a tiny little thing that she was. So ever since then she had the nick name of Froggie and has everything froggie. As she grew older she grew into her eyes but the nick name stuck.

This is what I came up with for this weeks challenge:

Congratulations TREEFROG!!! Since I picked your comment and tried to do something with your suggestion I am giving you a prize filled with Scrapping goodies. Please contact me with your mailing information so I can get it out to you. Thanks for taking the time to leave such a challeging request!! Hope you like it!

  10. I am so glad to hear your babies are feeling a little better. The teething gets better as you know. What worked for my kids was Humphries, cold teething rings and wet rags (with my daughter) that she could chew on.
