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.

April Showers........

Good morning! Terri is hosting a new challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters that starts today.  

The theme is:

April Showers - 

Anything to do with rain - raindrops, raincoat, umbrella, rain boots, etc.

 Here is the inside of the card.  I wanted to show it since the umbrella pops up when it is opened.  I added some Liquid Pearls to the raindrops.

When I think of Spring I think of bright colors so I knew I wanted to so something nice and bright. I had perfect paper from Doodlebug Designs (the blue polka dot paper is from some other brand) for this as well as a card I have been wanting to make from SVG Cuts that was in their Bunny Hop kit.  I added a stamp sentiment from Craftin' Desert Divas Say It Big stamp set to finish it off.  

Can't wait to see what you all create.  Thanks for stopping by!!
