LOTW 3/27 - Nataliadbh

I love the colors in this layout and the little journaling spots. But what also stood out to me is the story that went along with the photos. I always find it tough to scrap the tough times but in the end it is so rewarding! Thanks for sharing this awesome layout with us Natalia!
