Smile-It Is Monday

Hi everyone.  It's a new week again. Since Thursday here in the US  is the Thanksgiving Holiday, I only have 2 days of school this week. That puts a big smile on my face.
Speaking of smiles, my latest journal page for Art Journal Journey is this page full of smiles. This month the theme is 101 Ways to Keep Warm, and at least for me, a smile warms me up. Way more than a frown certainly would. :)
My page is made with lots of doodles smiles, some spray ink and some bits of paper tape that had all these smiling sayings on it. And this little boy has a nice smile. 
So Saturday night's hockey game was a real bust. The team looked horrible and lost 7-0. BUT the hubby and I were meeting a couple of our college friends, and even if the game was bad we had a fun time.

Hope you have a fantastic new week.

The Wednesday off before Thanksgiving would certainly put a smile on my face. I always hated when the girlies had a half day that day. So I'sm smiling along with the little gent on your page that you have that day off, too. Too bad about your team. Better luck next time. Y'all look like you're having a good time. Love the fan jerseys. Have a great day!

I am sorry to hear that the game was a bust- but good that nevertheless you enjoyed it with meeting friends and those great sweaters must keep warm as well! Lovely photo! The page appeals to me - a smile can really warm a heart - a friendly face and a little smile - this costs next to nothing but can mean a lot!
A fantastic idea with all the lips and the little smile words .... ADORABLE!!!
Happy Thanksgiving week for you Erika!
Thank you for supporting AJJ with so many wonderful ideas and pages this month again!

I didn't realize it was so cold at a hockey rink. Everyone is dressed like it's freezing there. Sorry about your team's loss.

LOVE your AJJ entry and the way you used that cute little boy. Those smiles are adorable. Hope you aren't too taxed from working this week (grin).
