Project Happiness Week 5

I am a little behind with  my Project Happiness but I really want to see this through, actually I am having so much fun doing these little projects I think I will continue to do them for the rest of the year.

Week 5 was pretty quiet, just hanging around the house and letting the kids be kids.  The first of my happy moments came this week when my son finally conquered climbing the big tree in our complex.  He has wanted to do it since he was about 5 but this week he finally did it, the big reward is jumping over to the roof of the big shed and having a Coke with his friend.


I used the Bella Blvd Sunshine and Happiness collection which has lots of fun patterns to cut out and play with.


I especially loved the little clouds :)


My second happy moment came from shopping at Costco and finding a ROXY hoodie there. I love Roxy, it's been one of my favorite clothing companies for as long as I can remember, I love their flip flops and bags too.


I love hand cutting out designs to create embellishments and these flowers were perfect for this project.


I also love these mini clothes pins that I found at the dollar store, with a little bit of twine they are prefect to attach the projects to my board.
