Neopolitan Notebook

Was checking out all the challenges that were out there for Sunday and ran across Rosie-Dee's Challenge Blog. The challenge #50 is ice cream inspired, Neopolitan to be exact. I had just finished another altered notebook and this fits the menu perfectly.

The papers are strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. Matted the paper with chocolate and then added strawberry and vanilla flowers. The flowers were made using my Sizzix, used three layers to give some dimension,then added die cut leaves that are from SU. The leaves and circle sentiment are in an additional ice cream color we will call blueberry.

The sentiment was computer generated, then layered using dimensionals, this is now my favorite notebook, and it will be given to someone special at our family reunion.

Happiness is one of the challenges at GSC and this is was makes me happy. They have had different quotes all month regarding happiness this is just one of them, it reads

Finding happiness is like

finding yourself. You

don't find happiness, you

make happiness.

David Leonhardt

Thanks to the talented ladies at GSC these quotes have been put to good use, copies them and made little signs for our office, they have been greatly appreciated by the staff, a little positive energy never hurt anyone.

The quote for today really hit home and can't wait to put it up in the office, know that all of your being so creative will relate to this quote:

The greatest happiness

in life is to be truly

and consistently


--Peter Koestenbaum

Hope everyone has a crafty day.
