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.

Sympathy cards

Sympathy cards....These are the cards that everyone hates to make but everyone needs.  It is the circle of life but it just stinks having to send these out.  I am on a kick to use up my scraps, well let me rephrase that since I will never use up all my scraps in this life time.  I am on a kick making cards using my scraps.  This week at the Sisterhood of Crafters we are having a challenge to you all to show us your sympathy cards.  I went into my stash and found some small scraps and this is what I came up with.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! and punches from EK Success.  Even my ribbon was a small scrap!

I hope you stop on by and play along with us over at the Sisterhood.  Have a great day!

  1. You made a beautiful card with scraps. Yesterday I went through my scraps and colorized them. I am moving my craft room. The sentiment on your card is compassionate
