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.

Things with Wings

Hello everyone!  Popping in here today to share with you a card that I made for a friend that is going thru some tough times.  This is for the new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  The theme is "Things with Wings". I used the card base from SVG Cuts Poplar Street Tulips set and papers are from the Believe paper pad by Prima. The stamp I have had for some time, it is by Paper Inspirations and shows Proverbs 3:5-6.  I added some 3D butterflies using my Stampin Up! punch.  I hope she likes it!

Hope to see you playing along with our Things With Wings challenge over at the Sisterhood. So many different avenues you can go with that one. 

 Have fun and most of all HAPPY CRAFTING!
