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 Pen Challenge over at Practical Scrappers

This week over at Practical Scrappers we have a super fun and easy challenge to use a white pen on your project. There are soooooo many different ways to use a white pen. I personally have 4 of them because I can not be without them! I used the pen on her eyes, teeth, outfit and to add faux stitching around the border.

I used Sailor Honey from Sassy Studios. I just love her stamps. I have one in the works for my brother..right up his alley! I can not draw so I love when artists like this do all the work for me!! I used my Copics (still learning) and my Prismacolor pencils to color this image.

I hope you stop on by and play along with us this week!!
