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.

SVGAttic Blog Hop

Happy Friday Everyone! Welcome to the SVG Attic hippity hop blog hop! If you came from the ever so talented Laura's blog then you are right on track. If not you can start at the beginning by clicking HERE. You don't want to lose out on winning any of the fabulous prizes!!!! All you have to do is hop along and leave comments on all of the Designer's blogs.

The theme of this hop is "Gifts from The heart". We were asked to make gifts that we would give away this holiday season. I started several of them and I hope to have a chance to finish them all and showcase them to you. You have until Sunday to enter your comments and get a chance to win one of two $25 Gift Certificates that will be given away by the owner of SVG Attic, Jessica!
Here is my project for Day one of the hop. I made a recipe book to hold Christmas cookie recipes. This would be good to hand down from generation to generation. Defintely something I would treasure. I would even transfer some recipes that were handed down so they could all be kept in one place. For Mr. & Mrs. Claus I used Santas' Little Helpers. For the sentiment on top I used Cozy Christmas Captions and just added a couple more cookies that came with Mrs. Claus under the extras tab .

Now go along and hop onto Jearise's blog for some more fabulous eye candy and gift giving ideas. Below is the line up showing all the designers included in this hop. Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to get your chance to win that fabulous $25 gift certificate!!!
