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.

KaDoodle Bug Designs and Too Cute By Jessica Facebook FP hop!

I am participating in a fun hop over on Facebook with KaDoodle Bug Designs and Too Cute by Jessica.  Hop along with us to win some super fun prizes. You can start HERE at the beginning.  Make sure to visit everyone and leave comments to be in the running for two $20 GC one to each store.

For my projects I used A Raggedy School Year and the Back To School Title both found in the KBD store. First I made a pencil box from a file that I bought from the Silhouette Store.  Super cute way to spruce up a gift of pencils.  You can fill it with other items as well.  Then I made a matching Post-It Note holder with the clip art from the set. The paper I used was by October Afternoon and the card stock American Crafts.

Tomorrow will be day #2 of the hop so don't forget to hop along both days for extra chances at winning!
