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.

Playing along with Craftin' Desert Divas Linky Party

I saw the current linky party over at Craftin' Desert Divas blog and decided to play along.  Well truth be told I was set on cleaning and while I was cleaning I found some summer papers that made me stop and say out loud "these would go perfect with the new CDD bears"!  Needless to say my ADHD kicked in and I threw the cleaning to the curb and crafting away I went!! Cleaning really is under-rated anyway....lol

These bears were just the cutest!! I fell in love with them.  The set is called GOTTA WEAR SHADES.  The little bear looked like it was waving so I paired it with the Hello sentiment from SAY IT BIG.  The papers are from Echo Parks Summer Bliss. I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers then added some Glossy Accents to the eye glasses and the flower as well as some Stickles on the water.

I am linking this up to their sketch linky party which ends this weekend I believe.  Okay off to find something else to color!!
