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.

Being Thankful

Hello Everyone! Are you all enjoying this heat wave?? LOL Thank goodness for central air. I feel bad but I have to keep the little ones inside because they are so sensitive to the heat they turn beat red from just a few minutes outside.

I have a bunch of photos to share with you today. Over at The Sisterhood of Crafters we are showing our "THANKS" by having a challenge. We are asking you to make some THANK YOU cards. I just had my girls 2nd birthday party so I just sat around one day (which was rare) and simply just played around to see what I would come up with. Sorry that the pictures are so bad but I had to take them inside and my batteries were dying.

I needed a simple, flat and easy to mail Thank you card that was easy to make in bulk. For these cards I just played around with the new PTI's Mehndi Medallion stamp in different colors (Stampin' Up ink). The sentiment is from PTI's Big & Bold Wishes

I made this card with my Vintage Music Market Street background stamp and PTI's Happy Trails.
This one makes me laugh. I knew I was a hoarder before but this one proves it. I have a 6X6 tablet of Stella and Rose which is some of my favorite DP ever. I had to cut the little strips off of the top but I couldn't bare to part with them so I made a card with them. OMG rehab here I come!

Hope you come and join us and show us what you can be "Thankful" for.

Many hugs...and stay COOL!
