- 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 Peachy New Sketch Challenge
Whew...I think I survived but barely. My twins turned 2 on the 16th and we just had the party this week. My niece & nephew were here from Florida and last year we started a tradition of after the party putting up our tent (this thing is HUGE..we call it the Taj Mahal) and having all the kids sleep over. We had 8 kids in the tent and two adults to supervise not to mention 8 adults in the house. I woke up at the crack of dawn to make a gazillion Buttermilk pancakes and no I did not think ahead and buy Bisquick..sigh. But they had a blast and that is what counts. I just have been going for over 2 weeks straight with very little sleep and throw in some major stress and dealing with alot of crazy personal issues boy oh boy. The minute I stopped I crashed. It has been 3 days and I am still not recovered and I am still cleaning up the mess from the party. I haven't been in my craft room in weeks so I am very very sad..sniff sniff.
But the good news is that Peachy Keen Stamps has a great new challenge this week. That gave me a chance to sneak back in my craft room to make a card. I got to use the new stamps PK-287 Ballin' Bunnies released recently that are just to cute. I stamped the adorable crying bunny and glued it on top of the die cut. Then I did several layers of UTI and stuck it in the freezer for the cracked glass effect. I wanted something "broken" to symbolize saddness or hurt which is why the bunny is crying. I colored her in with my Prismacolor pencils with French Grey tones.
