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.

How adorable is this mouse????

Okay this mouse just makes me want to cry!!! How cute is this mouse????? I couldn't wait to use her. So when I saw the sketch this week over at the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog I knew I had to use my PK-289 Mitsy Sue and Colby Cheer Up.

Here is the sketch:

And this is what I came up with:

I colored the image with my PrismaColor pencils and completed this card with 100% of my paper scraps. I just basically grabbed what was in my arms reach... I just love seeing what I can come up with when I do that. I had a die cut that I cut out with my Nesties and stamped with Market Street Woodgrain background stamp. I just cut it in half to give it another element on the card. I wanted to keep it flat for easy mailing. I also added some CTMH Liquid Glass to the flower which is hard to see.

I sure hope you join us for this great sketch challenge!
