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.

Birthday Wishes!

We are celebrating at the Sisterhood!  The challenge that we have currently is a HAPPY BIRTHDAY theme.  It can be cards or a gift/project that you make for a birthday.  This is one card that I need a lot of but currently do not have enough of in my stash.  

This first one I used a Cuttlebug folder as well as some Nestibilities.  The stamp set is from PaperTrey Ink.

I made a gatefold card with papers from Carte Bella.  This sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  I recently won a challenge and picked this stamp set called FROM THE INSIDE OUT.  There are so many great sentiments that can be used for birthdays, Get well and sympathy.  This set is just an all around great set to have in your stash.
