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 Online Crop Party!

Whoo HOOO! Some more online fun with Practical Scrappers!! As I mentioned Practical Scrappers is celebrating their one year anniversary this week. On our message board (which you can get to by clicking on the Practical Scrappers badge on my sidebar, then on the MESSAGE BOARD badge on the left side of the page)we have loads of fun going on. There are some sketch challenges, color challenges and lots of fun themed challenges. I started today on some and I am having a blast.

For the Sketch Challenge #7 I came up with this layout for my friends album. I didn't do any journaling because I left that for her. I used paper from My Mind's Eye and embellishments from K & Company.

Next we have Seed Spittin' Challenge #3 where we had to do something with watermelons or the color of watermelons. Here is a quick and simple layout for that challenge:

Last but not least Clowning Around Challenge #2 I made a scrapbook page border, tag and mat to be put on a LO in the future. I made this one completely out of scraps!! Now that makes me happy!!

I am off to complete some more Cropping fun!! I know I am not going in order but I am never normal!! Come along and join us...lots of fun prizes along the way!
