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.

Wedding Bliss

Today starts another new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters. The theme is Wedding so you can create any project based around a wedding.  Now for some fun I challenged myself to use something old and something new. I have had this paper in my stash for I don't know how many years. I don't even know where I got it since it was a 8x8 size and I don't ever recall buying anything like that.  I found it by accident and fell in love With it. I also had these metal heart stickers if you will for about 6-7 years. I also found this card in my library on my Silhouette and thought that the belly band would work perfectly. Now I needed something new.  I grabbed my newly purchased SIMPLY SAID stamps from Craftin' Desert Divas and it fit perfectly. The gorgeous ribbon is also new from Love Bug Creations.


  1. BEAUTIFUL Lisa! What a great idea to use the old-new-borrow-blue wedding saying as a starting point! You always create so beautifully! Hope your doing 'okay' ... thinking of you! I'm here if you need a friend! HUGS from OHIO!
