We have three types of tears- basal, reflex, and psychic. Psychic tears, the ones we produce when we are sad, have a different chemical make up than the other two and contain a natural painkiller, leucine enkephalin, which is perhaps why we feel better after we cry.

Two brothers from a set of triplets fooled a Russian prison when one brother swapped places with the other to give him a brief taste of freedom. Rather than returning, the freed brother ran off with his brother’s girlfriend. It took years for the authorities to realize they had been duped.

Sunday Recap 5.13

Hello, Paper Smooches friends and fans!

Happy Mother's Day, everyone!!!

Today I'm sharing a quick post of the Paper Smooches highlights for this week ⬇️

Be sure to play along with our May 2018 FUN theme challenge! I'm pretty sure this is as close to an "Anything Goes" challenge that we can get without calling it Anything Goes! LOL! All of the PS stamps/dies are F-U-N!

Here's my take on this challenge- I wanted a card that reminded me one of the some fun times that I enjoy, which is having a cold lemonade (or water), sitting on the beach, hanging with friends, relaxing. Next I needed a fun element on the card. I think that the "lemon" is perfect because it's actually a balloon die turned into a lemon! SO FUN! Or at least I think it is 🙃 This card is titled "Lemon Squeeze". Paper Smooches stamps/dies used include: Crystal Clear stamps/dies, Let's Celebrate Icons, Seasonal Tree dies.
