Laughter is the best medicine. Studies have shown that people heal faster and handle serious medical side effects when they get their daily dose of humor. The movie “Patch Adams,” about a doctor who used humor as part of patients’ recovery regimens, was based off a true story.
I created the cover using a digital image from Meljen's called "Doctor Bear." It's perfect for my theme of laughter, which is this month's challenge theme at the Path of Positivity Challenge blog. After coloring him with my Copics, I found a leftover piece of Peanuts Gang patterned paper with which to frame him.
Some various other patterned paper pieces added color, and I printed the quote in Microsoft Word. I scattered a few buttons onto the cover and I'm ready to fill the pages with funnies. I already printed out a few jokes and cartoons from Photobucket, and have several joke books leftover from when my son was young.
I'm thinking of leaving parts of pages, or maybe a few full pages, blank, so that his friends and family can add their own funny stories and jokes to the journal. what do you think? Fill it up completely or leave some room for additions? Let me know! And please keep my young friend in your prayers. He has a long road to walk before he sees good health.
