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.

Sisterhood of Crafters last challenge of 2015

Wow! As I typed the header it hit me.....2015 is almost over!  It has gone so quickly, but I for one am glad.  This year has not been kind to me.

Today starts the last challenge for 2015 over at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  That is crazy but super exciting! I can't wait to show you what we have in store for next year.

This challenge is hosted by our Sistah' Diane.  She picked to have a Holiday color themed challenge.  I love her unusual color choices.  Here is what she picked.

And this is what I came up with. 

I used the adorable mouse from the Got Coffee stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas. I used my Winsor & Newton markers to color him in.  The sentiment came from CDD's Baked with Love stamp set.

I sure hope you stop on by The Sisterhood to play along with our last challenge for the year!!

Have a great day and,
