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.

The good ol' days

Good morning y'all!  Today starts a new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters, I sure hope you come on over and play along with us.  The theme is GENERATIONS, to use an old picture on your project or anything about generations.  At first I wasn't sure what I would do, but then I remembered some of my gorgeous Graphic 45 papers I had in my stash that would work perfectly.

To make this altered composition notebook I simply used some Graphic 45 Couture paper.  I fell in love with the sentiment and based the design around that pre made cut out that was in the paper pad. I thought this would make a great journal, diary etc. I hung a Tim Holtz metal distressed vintage key on the front that says MEMORIES.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Hope you have a great day and HAPPY CRAFTING!!!!
