Smile and make someone happy.

A journal  page for Art Journal Journey
where Erika has chosen the theme...
Every journal page tells a story.

This page  has  a background made a while ago and until now
 I wasn't sure how it would be finished off.
The flowers stamps are Paper Arty, some fussy cut as they didn't stamp so well on this heavy paper..
The smiling faces were computer generated.

As for the story,  when every thing is cold and grey in the winter months, nothing can  cheer me up as much as a smile. from  a family member,  friend or even a passing stranger.
Earlier this week a friend had a significant birthday and I took her a large bunch of roses and other blooms, needless to say there were many smiles .

We cannot know how folk feel inside, so give a smile and make someones day.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today.
Your visit and comments are always very much appreciated.
