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:
