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.

My entry for the first color cue challenge

Maybe I am getting distracted by the 80 degree breeze coming thru my window or the screaming babies in the background but my card didn't come out the way I wanted. I always have a vision and somehow end up with something completely different. I thought the girls would sleep so I decided to work on a quick card for the very first Color Cue Challenge over at Market Street Stamps. I sure hope they allow more than one entry because this isn't what I had in mind..LOL For this card I used the Too Many Martinis background stamp and the Robo Love adorable robot. I didn't do such a good job coloring it and I didn't let the Liquid Glass dry that I put over it either before taking the picture...my bad :(

I also wanted to share with you these adorable quick and easy photo holders I made with Vintage Wallpaper and the Zebra Print background stamps. I spray painted the wooden cubes black and added a touch of cardstock for a bit of color. I know they are super simple but I just love them!
