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.

Try this challenge for a $30 Prize!

Hello Everyone!

This is going to be a brief post because I just had some family leave and a new batch is coming. I have to clean up from wave #1 to get ready for wave #2!

This week over at Peachy Keen Stamps we have a great challenge. I gotta admit I had something totally in mind when I saw the sketch part of the challenge but I had to scrap it when I saw the color challenge. I kinda froze when I saw the colors because those are not colors I normally use so I was a bit worried. But afterall a challenge is a challenge right??? LOL! Well I had fun doing it. I am just starting to practice with my Copics and need to get the right ink/paper to prevent it from bleeding so you will have to excuse that in the card (bleeding of colors). Challenge #35 over at Peachy Keen Stamps is a sketch AND a color challenge. The prize is a $30 gift certificate to the PKS store..How cool is that????????? I wish I could enter!! Kathy is always coming up with new and fun images and I just want them ALL!!

Here is the challenge this week:

And this is what I came up with...

I wanted to add some more to the card but I had family come up for a visit then throw in some horrendous thunderstorms and I just ran out of time. I do love this image from PKS..She is sooooooo cute! I used Peachy Keen Stamps PK-780 Lulee's Swim Time. I colored her with my Copics then accented her with some stickles and my white Gelly pen.

Why don't you come on over and take the challenge with us??? If not, you gotta stop on by to see what my other DT friends came up with, they are FANTASTIC!! But that doesn't surprise me!
