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.

Animals in the house!

Hello everyone!  I am happy to be hosting the new challenge over at the Sisterhood.  The challenge is all about animals.  We are asking you to create a project with an animal (s) on it.  I had fun with this one.  I created a lunch box for my niece Beth who loves frogs.  I completed the whole box and the frog but I was stuck on the eyes.  She loves red eyed tree frogs so I wanted to make a box with a frog on it.  Every time I went to put on the red eyes it just looked like it was possessed.  I struggled with it and struggled with it and put it aside. I decided to put on googly eyes instead.  Well I couldn't find the eyes I wanted and I was trying to get the picture done before the sun went down.  I found these giant eyes and started laughing.  I put them on the frog and I just couldn't stop laughing.  I had to leave them on there just for giggles!  I hope she finds it as funny as I do!! I may end up taking them off but who knows! LOL

Next I came up with a quick tag for a baby.  It can be attached to any gift or package.

I hope you stop on by and play with our challenge over at the Sisterhood!
