Reaching 40

Today I am taking on the Challenge YOUrself August Challenge.

Challenge #9 - Celebrate your Age.

I dont know if my layout is celebrating my age, as I turned 40 earlier this year. & have had a pretty tough
year since. But This is my layout;

A couple of close ups, 

I this layout I have hidden my journaling behind  the photos in a card 
like situation, open at the tabs & there it is. 

Have used PP & collectables from Kaisercraft  Outdoor Trails Collection from 
A Mothers Art.
Flair from Studio Fourteen40
Kaisercraft card stock & Pinecone Chipboard from Marally Craft.

Thanks for stopping by.
