Once Upon A...Sketch - Challenge Layout

I created this layout using the November challenge sketch from the Once Upon a...Sketch blog.  This month's challenge was to create a layout and journal about the joys of being a woman.  First, I have to say that it is always challenging for me to scrap a layout about myself.  I don't know why? It is just hard for me.  However, I know someday my children will appreciate having at least a couple of layouts of ole' mom.  :) 

My journaling says:  "The older I get, I am finding that my insecurities are fading.  I am less self-focused and more outward focused.  I know who I am and have accepted myself.  I am happy to be in this place and enjoy being a woman."    

This was a fun challenge and I really like how my layout turned out!  It was very therapeutic! :)  I am already looking forward to the next sketch challenge! :)

And here is the November sketch I used:

Beautiful layout. I love the way you journal.What you say about insecurities fading (although far from completely in my case at least...lol) is so true.
Your photo is lovely and all your choises for embellishments too. Love the text-flowers.
Thanks so much for playing along at OUAS!

Hi kelly! Firstly thank you for joining us at OUAS and directing us to your blog, because I have just discovered it and LOVE your work!

Your layout is awesome. I know it is hard to scrap about our selves..I used to find it hard too but like you said I think my kids will want to know who their mother was. That I was young once too (..LOL!). I think you have done a fantastic job. LOVE the flowers and I must say I agree with your journalling 100%. Absolutely my thoughts!

Take care and have a great weekend.
