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.

A Very Peachy Birthday Wish

Right now I should be wrapping, baking, cleaning just to name a few but I wanted to sneak in with a VERY MERRY BIRTHDAY WISH for someone who I am proud to call a friend, Mrs. Kathy J. from Peachy Keen Stamps.  My card started out completely different and I was ready to scrap it all together but I was determined to finish it.  I am starting my New Years resolution early!!  At least this one will be a fun one to stick to.  

The shape of the card is an album file I bought from the Silhouette store which I believe was created by Lori Whitlock.  The stamps I used were PKS-241 Happy Birthday Kids (the cupcake) and the December stamp of the month kit for the candles and sentiment.  Today is the last day to wish Kathy a very happy and merry birthday.  Click HERE to join in the fun.  Happy Birthday Kathy!!!!

I will see you in the New Year.  My New Years resolution is to go back to my happy place and do my crafting.  I have been away from it so long I miss it.  This is the time of year that is bad for me so I usually don't know what way is up.  I have taken the time to spend it with my family and my lovely little ladies.  They truly are the wind beneath my wind and the reason I keep on walking.  I wish you all a very Happy, Safe and Healthy New Year.
