Scrappy Friends March Challenge and...a Winner!!!

Hello, and welcome to my March challenge!
I am changing my challenge up a bit this month.  Kerys will be hosting the sketch challenge on her blog and my challenge for March is:
KEEP CALM and....

You are to create a LAYOUT and include the phrase,

You can use it as part of your journaling, the title or include an embellishment that has the phrase on it.
