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.

Choooo- Choooo All Aboard!

Hi everyone!  Do you have or know of a little boy who loves his little blue engine? 

I just finished this album to hold pictures of my son and his favorite Thomas trains. I was so happy when I saw this file because I bought Thomas the Tank Engine paper years and years ago waiting for the perfect time to make a layout or album for his pictures.

 The file is called Funny Trains and can be found  HERE at Too Cute By Jessica.  There is a sale right now and the file would only be $1.13 (with current sale)!! I am not sure when sale ends.  


My beloved Peachy Keen Stamps came to the rescue with their 4" face stamps.  I made the album large so I could make it big enough to hold 4x6 photos and lots of other goodies.  Didn't realize I made it so big for the face stamp that I picked out to fit!! I have a bad habit of doing that.  But I remembered I had my 4" PKS stamps and let out a sigh of relief.  I used PK-490-3 Everyday Character 4" face stamps for the face of the train.  Kinda like a smarty pants smirk which pretty much sums up my son! lol  He was full of energy and love! I think this would also make a great gift!

Happy Crafting!
