XOXO Challenge #15 - You Showed Me The World

The first challenge of the year is up over at XOXO!  Head on over to the blog to check out what the other Lipstick Chicks have put together to inspire you this month. Here is my creation:
I was digging through some old photos in the computer when I came across this sweet moment from my daughter's first few weeks. I do not normally do single photo layouts but this picture warranted it's own special page.

They say to help build the bond between mother and child, you should have lots of skin on skin contact. Just one of those things about being a new mother that really gives a new perspective on the world. I included a little hidden journaling to my daughter in the pocket.

Me and Mr. Huey had a little fun creating a misted polka-dot background (don't tell my husband!) and while I don't really love the results, it was fun to do a little experimenting. I'll get the hang of the misting thing eventually.

To enter this month's challenge, scraplift one or more of the Lipstick Chicks creations and don't forget to link up! You could win a juicy Second Semester kit from Sweet Peach Crop Shop! It is chock full of goodies from Crate, Cosmo, AC, Jillibean, and more! If only I could enter too! *sigh*
