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.

Angelica's Online Birthday Bash!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! Consider yourself lucky that you are reading this and not hearing it in person! LOL Welcome to Angelica's birthday hop! A bunch of us have gotten together to throw her a birthday party!! If you came here from Julie's blog then you are right on track. If you just got here you can start at the beginning by clicking HERE to start at the way beginning. Trust me, you will be amazed at what these ladies came up with. I was blown away by their creativity.

Angelica is a Mom, business woman, friend, basically a juggler of many things. I hope and wish today on her birthday she gets treated like a Queen and takes a break, she surely deserves it. Angelica you are a wonderful human being and truly deserve the best. Sending you many hugs and birthday wishes on your birthday.
Since I am ALWAYS behind and running late I went ahead and made her a Happy Belated birthday tag to go with her little gift that I got her. I honestly have the best intentions all the time but somehow, some way time slips away from me. I wanted to package up her gift so I used the pillow box cut from SVG ATTIC. The beautiful background stamp is from no other than the talented Angelica. It is called Vintage Wallpaper. I think this stamp was one of my very first Market Street stamps that I purchased. To ink up the stamp I used Vintage cream from PaperTrey Ink and stamped it on their kraft cardstock. If you haven't checked out her stamps you should!!! I am pretty sure that you will love them as much as I do.

Now go on and hope onto Kristi's blog to continue Angelica's birthday blog hop.
