My Baby Boy - Scrapmatts DT

Following on from the 10-day old photos of Harrison I shared yesterday, here is one taken last week. My journaling describes some of the early challenges we faced with breastfeeding, how we're working to overcome these and how much I enjoy post feed cuddles (which is when I took this photo).


There are so many different ways you can use chipboard but sometimes all it needs is a quick coat of paint like I've done here.

Scrapmatts used: CB5106 Chevrons 01; CB8001 Circles 01; CB4055 Assorted Words 09.

I was inspired by the sketch over at Challenge YOUrself this month. It's a fun challenge site which requires you to include yourself in the photo. 


ARTastic has set the challenge of doodling for November, I've doodled borders on all my papers and the chipboard circles.
