|Smile away Shadowbox|
I built a shadowbox around the theme " Smile your heart out" the sentiment on an epoxy sticker my friend Lisa sent me!
I embossed the sentiment " Laughter is the best medicine" in gold and I bet you agree that many a times Laughter is certainly the best medicine! Yes believe me as a doctor I see that all too often...the power of ones emotional state and positive attitude can work wonders! Last month we operated on an 86 yer old man with advanced cancer of the larynx[ voicebox]. His postoperative period was so turbulent as his aged body struggled to heal and at times we even regretted having given him the option of surgery even though that was his best chance! But in all these years we have not seen such a fighter...he was just raring to go back home and I think his positive attitude did more wonders than anything we did and he was soon able to join his grandchildren at home beating the deadly disease and the turmoils of its treatment!
|Laughter is the best medicine|
Everyone has a guardian angel to look over them dont they. I am not deeply religious in the temple going- daily praying fashion but I do believe someone watches over us! And anyway the little fairy looks too cute to not smile!She is actually a button I stuck on an stamped- die cut butterfly!
Well what else can make one smile...something that reminds you of a holiday ...palm trees on sandy beaches..or more accurately coconut trees in my case as they remind me of my hometown of Kerala ! The coconut trees are Spellbinders die cuts and inked in distress ink and glittered over with distress glitter.
