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.

Celebrating birthdays

Hello everyone!  I am here to share with you my project that I made for the new challenge being hosted by my fellow Sister Darlene over at the Sisterhood of Crafters. It's all about Birthdays! The challenge is to make any project that is based around BIRTHDAYS.

Since I always have the best intentions to get my cards out on time somehow I am always behind. So I thought I would use a Belated birthday stamp. Sadly I think I need a bunch of these in my stash!! I used this super fun Cupcake card that made it fun to use my scraps. I am going to go back and make a bunch more because these cards are too cute not to and a great way to use my scraps!

A little birdie told me that our Sister Darlene's birthday is next week.  So if you can drop her some love for hosting a great challenge as well as leaving her some birthday love!

Have a great day and HAPPY CRAFTING!

Supplies Used:

Paper: Graphic 45 & various scraps
