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.

Use the word "thank" on your project

Hello everyone!  Tis' the season to be Thankful!  Well it should be something you celebrate 24/7 but we are putting it in the forefront for this new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  We want you to be "Thank"ful and get crafty with it.  Use the word "thank" anywhere on your project and link it up to our new challenge.  We can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

I made this card using some paper from Authentique as well as the card base from SVG Cut's  Mistletoe Manor Svg kit.  To change it up I took off the reindeer and just let the sentiment and the papers be the focal point.  These would be quick and easy to whip up in multiples.  You will always need Thank you notes on hand.  The sentiments are from PaperTrey Ink.

Happy Crafting!
