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.

White core card stock challenge

Happy Friday everyone! This week over at Practical Scrappers we have an awesome challenge for you. Break out your white core or colored core cardstock and see what you can whip up. I sat down at my desk and was contemplating what I was going to make. I challenged myself to make a card with whatever I could find on my desk. Good thing I am not a neat scrapper!! I had all these things left over from previous projects. I found the piece of brown CTMH card stock and scored it on my Scor-Pal, then sanded it lightly to bring out the white core. Really simple and quick but it used up more of my scraps and that makes me happy. Well I am off to create!! Hope you join us this week!!!!!


  1. This is simple, but so beautiful!! TFS!

  2. This is a great card. Have you already done the Peachy Keen Giveaway? I can't find the winner anywhere and I have to be honest, I love those stamps. So I just thought I would check and see. Thanks so much!
