Published Work - self portrait .

Hello my friends
Today I am sharing a layout I had published in Australian Scrapbook ideas magazine 
issue 22 available in newsagents now .
we were asked to create a layout on ourselves.
here is my creation 
One of the best things I have learned in life 
is to be Me .
To love myself as I am.
Trust in the process of life and do what I love to do .
 I am in harmony with my garden and its inhabitants, connecting with the beauty that surrounds me .
For me Nature is so inspiring and a natural expression of my inner self .
I especially love to create a dream and follow it through .
