Serenity Project - October 2016 - Collaborative Project

Welcome to October's Serenity Project!  Can't believe another month has passed since the last time we posted!  Time seems to pass ever so quickly at the moment, so it was good to slow down and focus on something completely disconnected from all the busyness surrounding these past four weeks.  
Look forward to following the circle around and enjoy soaking up lots of incredibly beautiful and serene images from the rest of the SP girls this month.  Next stop is SueandI know you're going to really enjoy!  Please click here.
