Journaling reads:

The journaling is a bit small and difficult to see in this scan. Sorry! In the upper right corner the handwritten journaling reads: The best part of eating Chinese food must be the fortune cookie...okay, maybe not! They are fun though! In college I learned that adding "in bed" to the fortune is fun too!

Along the left hand side there are fortunes from cookies I have saved over that year or so. Under them I've added my own comments about them.

Fortune: You are a leader. Others soon will need your inspiration.
Is "insanity" another word for that?

Fortune: Your innovative nature will help you come up with a solution. bed? LOL. Okay....:-)

Fortune: We must always have old memories and young hopes.
I wish I had old money and a young body.

Fortune: Visit a park. Enjoy what nature has to offer.
Yeah...I don't like nature.

Fortune: You will find your horizons suddenly broadened.
...and so I have! :-D

Fortune: Focus in on the color yellow tomorrow for good luck!
...I hate yellow.

Fortune: The current year will bring you much happiness.
Well...that is vertainly true. I an one lucky girl, FORTUNate even. :-D

Journaling reads:

For as long as we've been cropping we've eaten Wang's II Chinese food. It all started with the first store owner, Beth...she's the one who got us hooked. Then we carried the tradition on to our Cropadiles Club at church, and then we kept ordering when I bought the store. Our tradition involves one quirk...we say the words "in bed" after we read our fortune...It's brought LOTS of laughs!

Journaling reads:

What great pages we have this week for our fortune cookie challenge!
I love the top page ... in BED! What funny fortunes if you add the suggested ending. Love the b/w photo, the heart mini brads, and the chinese character background. Really inspired work!

The next page titled YUM is so fun! Love the photos here! These groups look like sooo much fun! It's so cool how the menu was used as the journal block ... but, that panda bear is the icing on this delicious looking cake!!

She Loves To Help ... look at that adorable little girl. And your bling heart around the touching hands just melts my heart. Beautiful quotes on your fortunes! this page is simply wonderful!

Alexander ... who says that you have to use several fortunes? This one is direct, relevant, and certainly helps you make your point. Beautiful job, Mom. And, wise advice for a 16 year old son.

Great work, ladies! Thanks so much for participating in our challenge this week! Good luck!! You're all deserving!
