About Me

My photo
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.

Blog Hop Winner & New Challenge

Thank you all for some great comments. I read each one and I really enjoyed your stories. I laughed because I was in awe of the creativity of Mom's. I also had some of the same costumes that you all had and I just loved it.

Okay now onto the winner of the Peacy Keen Stamp set that I am giving away.

Drumroll please..............

CONGRATULATIONS GLORA of http://glorascrafts.blogspot.com/!!!

You have one Lisa Jean Halloween Stamp set coming your way. You have one week to contact me with your mailing information so I can get your prize out to you.

Now onto the new challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps!! This challenge we were asked to make a project inspired by the month of October. My neighbors boys are my adopted family and they love anything spooky, gory etc. I came up with this door hanging for them to hang on their play room door. I took pictures of it and showed it two different ways. I was going to leave it like this originally

But then I thought it was not going to be scary enough for them so I added a couple more monsters & blood. I had a lot of fun making this for them. I designed it on my Design Studio.

The supplies I used were:

Cricut Catridges: Mini Monsters, Happy Hauntings, Plantin Schoolbook
Peachy Keen Stamps:
PK-630 Nikkity Knack Cat Gang
PK-634 Frankly...
PK-692 Monster Mash Assortment
PK-690 Make A Monster Face Assorment
