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.

I have been locked out! But I am finally back!

Hello everyone!  It seems that blogger doesn't like me.  I have been blocked out for days and not even able to leave comments.  Not to mention that the past couple of posts that I scheduled didn't go up.  There is still a couple of more days left on our Easter challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  We do have an awesome sponsor this week so stop on by and link up your projects to be entered into the drawing.  I made this card with some Peachy Keen stamps and a file from SVG Cuts.  The card came from the Cotton Tail Village SVG set.  The paint splats on the egg are from the PKS Easter Egg Paint fight stamp set  and the eye is actually a penguin eye.  For the life of me I can not remember which set but I masked off the other one so only one would show. I believe most of the paper is Cosmo Cricket but don't hold me to it!

Now this is the card that I made for the past Sisterhood challenge that never posted!! ARRGGHH 
The challenge was to make a card using mostly green papers.  Since I am not much of a St. Patty's Day stamper I used some scraps and a stamp from PaperTrey Ink.  I can always use Thank you cards in my stash!
