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.

Market Street Stamps color challenge

Hello everyone!  It is a dreary day with a mix of snow and rain so this card is just perfect for the weather.  I wanted to participate in the challenge over at Market Street Stamps.  They have a fantastic color combo challenge going on.  I have to admit that at first I thought I would have lots of trouble using those colors but much to my surprise I had none at all and I just adore the color combo.  The stamp set I used is called Ain't No Sunshine.  To make the frilly edge I used a MS edge punch on some scrap papers that I put together.  This is a larger 6x6 card.  I used my Prismacolor pencils to color in the poor sad cloud.


  1. This is a really cute card. The colors do look pretty together.


  2. Beautiful use of the colors, Lisa! Oh my goodness.... that poor sad cloud is so cute...

  3. This is PERFECT! Great use of the colors for the challenge! I just LOVE it to pieces! BEAUTIFUL job! Hugs- Glora

  4. He may be sad Lisa, but that cloud is CUTE!!! I love this card. You rocked that challenge by a country mile.
    Love Viv xxx
