neapolitan goodness

This is post 2 of 2 for me today...make sure you check out my 'you're sew nice' post.

Hi Ya, I'm back:)

I had to play along with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger:


I had a couple ideas brewing and eventually settled on a clean & crisp design.  The PTI kraft panel is on glue dots....I LOVE that Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards sentiment....

How can you not be inspired by this fun picture?


My card goes out to all of you that pop over to my 'lil blog...that lurk...that leave me sweet comments...that have become bloggie buddies....I truly appreciate you.  I've been recently experiencing situations that put me into a-ha moments...

Here's what I think:

1.  Mean people stink
2.  You gotta kill mean people with kindness...don't stoop to their level
3.  Appreciate what you have...
4.  Take the good with the bad...learn from the experience
5.  Things could be a lot worse

Here's what I know:

1.  I have thee best friends
2.  I have thee best kids
3.  I have thee best man
4.  I have thee best family
