What The Fortune Cookie Told Me

Last week before the kids wrapped up, one of my classes and I ordered Chinese food delivered for lunch. So I open my fortune cookie and it tells me to keep my mouth  shut, KYMS.  That was a new abbreviation for me, and of course the kids certainly got a big laugh out of it.
I came home and decided it was worth making a simple journal page about. It so happened to be a frustrating day and I really wanted to get mad at someone but I did keep my mouth shut.
So maybe it was the right cookie for me!
I used spray inks, a Black Sharpie, a white Uniball pen, some Dylusions paint and some little metal dot flourishes that I had in my stash.

So another Monday has arrived. Another weekend flew by, as it always does.
But no complaints. It was a good weekend! 
Today we are getting part of our living room ceiling torn out, as we had some ice-dam water damage last winter from all the snow on the roof. But the good news about it all is that by the end of this week I should have a nice new ceiling, and I never did like the old one anyhow.
Love it.
And I am loving my roses right now. Look at all the blooms.

Awe- the beauty of summer!
Hope you have a great day and there's a little beauty of some type in your life.

That was some fortune cookie! Great idea to make a page of it! Hope the work on the ceiling goes well, and that the new one will be nicer. Lovely garden photos, I love roses so much. Have a nice day, hugs, Valerie

KYMS a new one for me too and I can see the kids getting a huge kick out of that one! Lovely roses, they seem so carefree! xox
