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.

A Boo-Rific Challenge!!!

Okay so Halloween is my favorite holidays to make things for so when I noticed the Challenge over at the The Sisterhood Crafters was going to be a Halloween inspired project I got all excited. But then reality set in, life got in the way, and my twins got 4 shots each (of course I was home alone with them while hubby got to work). So sadly all I could come up with is a card which is unusual for me. I found these scraps while cleaning my room and I decided to try to make something with them. The stamps I used were from the $1 bin at A.C. Moore last year. I used CTMH liquid glass on the moon which is hard to see in the picture. The card looks much better in person, for some reason it was really hard to get a picture of it. Hey...at least I used some scraps that I started for another project right??? hahahaha

It is my week to host the challenge at The Sisterhood Crafters so please stop on by and show us some Halloweeney Love!
