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.

Black, white plus one other color challenge

Hello everyone!  I am popping in to share with you my creations for the new Sisterhood of Crafters challenge we have this week.  We are asking you to create a project with the colors black, white, and one other color.  Lots of possibilities here!  I decided to making two little Thank you card holders for this challenge to give as gifts.  I thought this would be a cute way to give thank you cards in.  Both cuts are from SVG Cuts.  The suitcase is from Summer Holiday and the picnic basket is from Picnic in the Park. The cards fit nicely inside.  I hope you stop on by The Sisterhood and play along with us!  Have a great week!

I linked these up to the challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks for their 3D challenge.  There is almost a month left to play along so I am sure I will be back! Actually I know I will be :)
