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.

Favorite Color Combo

Good morning everyone!  It is a great day with a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  The challenge is to make a project using your favorite color.  I think it is funny how your tastes change with time.  I used to love very plain basic neutral colors.  Now I am all about the bold and beautiful!  I got this paper pad and started to use it to make a project for a friend.  I have not been able to get enough of the teal and the orange together.  I would of never looked twice at those colors but now I LOVE them!  

The stamp set I used was from Craftin' Desert Divas new release called SAY IT BIG.  Love those sentiments and I gotta say when I got it in the mail they were so much nicer than they looked on the screen.  LOVE THEM!
