Don't happy!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope your week is going well for you - so far, so good around here!  Spring is in the air, my grass is turning green, the trees are budding out and it's a beautiful day.

You know those little "Dollar Bins" they have at Michael's?  I love those.  I find all sorts of little things that I pick up, look at, go...hmmmmm, and usually put back down.  But, sometimes I do actually purchase those little things even though I have absolutely no idea of what to do with them.  Especially when I have one of those 20% off of everything you buy coupons - I mean, really, .80 can I not buy it and then worry about what to do with it later?

So, I had one of "those"coupons a few days ago and the little bins were just stocked to over-flowing.  So naturally, when I came across some little something that made me go...hmmmmm...I put it in my buggy and decided I would worry about what to do with it later.  Well, later arrived late last night....

This fun little chalkboard easel is the little something that caught my eye.
It took me about 20 minutes to put this together - cutting out and inking the flower taking most of that time.

The flower is from the Silhouette Online Store and that great sentiment is from the Chalkboard Sentiments Stamp Set by My Craft Spot.  I adhered some happy Tickled Pink Sequins around the chalkboard to finish up this quick little project.

The chalkboard stands about 5 inches tall and is the perfect size to display in my Studio.  So.....
Don't Worry, Be....Happy my friends!  Have a great day and I'll see ya soon!
