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.

Sentimental journey

Happy Hump day everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the nicer weather we have been having.  I know we are.  In PA we had a horrible winter and even when the temps are in the 40's it feels like summer so I will take it!

Today starts another challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  Our newest Sistah' Diane is hosting a challenge with a theme of "Sentimental Journey".  We asked that you create a project making the sentiment the main focal point instead of the normal image.  I gotta tell you I love making cards like this.  We have a friend who is having a baby soon and I came up with this card for her baby shower.  I used the papers that matched a project that I made for her and the colors also match the theme she has in the nursery. I used paper from Stampin up! and a stamp from a company that went out of business.

I hope you come and join us in our Sentimental Journey at the Sisterhood.  Have a great day and as always, HAPPY CRAFTING!
