Watching You Grow - Scrapmatts Design Team LO

My silly internet is playing up so I can't upload anything in my normal browser which has delayed me in getting this post up. This is my first layout for the Scrapmatts DT this month. I've decided to post them as separate LO's just to spread to joy around a bit as I'm not creating too much at the moment. I just can't seem to get my thyroid medication right so the doctor keeps having the play around with the dosage.
We had some very exciting briefs for this month, the first of which was to create a LO showcasing whatever we thought the current trends in scrapbooking were. I have done some masking with paint, used metal embellishments, an Instragram photo and some messy thread under the photo. It's the first time since I've done the thread thing. It's fun but hard to get it to stick down.

You can see in the close ups that I've used an old flourish (love these and have used multiple packs) as well as the new release banner. They have both been painted with a mixture of blue and white mists.
Scrapmatts chipboard used: CB1003, CB1189, CB1204, CB5106.
This LO design was inspired by the challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch... blog. The journaling prompt this month was "Grow". I have written on the back about how it's difficult to watch little Harvey grow knowing he has a terminal heart condition. Here is the beautiful sketch:
