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.

Lots of Layers at the Sisterhood of Crafters

Good morning everyone!  Today starts a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  The challenge is LOTS OF LAYERS!! I may have gone overboard with this one but I couldn't stop..lol!  I got some new Sizzix dies which I used on the banners. I fell in love with all the bright colors of the paper, I couldn't narrow down which ones to use so I used them all!! It is hard to tell in the picture but this is a pretty big card. 

 I had fun with this challenge!! Come on by and have some crafty fun with us and show us your layers!


  1. LOVE your fishtail banners Lisa and all the pretty papers you have used...awesome card!!
