Project Happiness Week 6

Summer is in full swing for this week.  My youngest is in camp for the week since my husband and I still have to work, and my oldest is playing the day away.

This week my first happiness came from my youngest son.  He came home one day and showed me some notes that got left in his backpack from a few girls at camp.  They were love notes and they were so cute.

I used some left over My Minds Eye and Amy Tangerine papers, and Cosmo Cricket letters.  I usually just use what's on my desk at the time that I am doing these to use up my leftover scraps.
I also found some old brads and ribbon to add the finishing touches.
The second happy thing that happened this week was the Instagram blog photo challenge.  I usually try to play along with them on the weekend and this weeks challenge was to do a photo of someone jumping.  I pulled my youngest outside and made him jump for me, at first he wasn't into it but after a few times he was a jumping mad man and I got some really great photos of him.

I wanted to keep this one really simple and this paper from the American Crafts Shoreline collection was perfect for it.  I added some white Dear Lizzy foam letters and that was it.

 I really love doing the Instagram photo challenges, I always end up with photos that I love.

Thanks for stopping by.

Awww so sweet that he got some love notes :)
Great tag and what fun photos.
My daughters do the instagram, I don't have a phone that takes photos or I am sure they would set me up with an account as they make me do all these types of things, lol.
