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.

2 More Frosted Designs Projects

I was so excited that Frosted Designs extended the deadline on a couple of their projects/challenges. I wanted to do everyone of them but some of the challenges were over by the time I saw them. I tried to do as many challenges as I could during what I thought was going to be naptime.

First I did a layout for the Quick Scrap by Jessica. I tried to use what I had in arm's lengths and leftovers from other projects. I actually even gave myself a time limit and I did this in less that 45 minutes.

Then I did a card for the Border Punch challenge by Kristin. I used 100% scraps on this one and kept it simple. I was going to stamp a sentiment but I wanted to leave it open for a generic card. I was going to continue on with the challenges but unfortunately the nap that I thought the girls were going to take never happened so I had to stop.
