Got Milk?

I created this layout for the 2008 Gr8 Cr8tive Idol contest at Just Cr8. The challenge for the first week of the contest was to create a layout using an advertising slogan from a business. When I first read the challenge "Got Milk?" immediately popped in my mind because I knew I had these photos I had taken of Katelynne nursing and that I really wanted to scrap them for her baby book. I know that some people might think it a bit strange to take a photo of a baby nursing and then scrapbook it- and share it with the world- but I am honestly PROUD to be breastfeeding and I just feel like it is something worth sharing and encouraging other moms to do. Also- I really want Katelynne to know how special it was and how important it is to me that I did breastfeed her. I plan to make a right side page to go with this so it will be a double layout, I want to journal more about breastfeeding- such as how it felt to do it in public and so on! I also need a photo of my super cool nursing cover I bought from Lovey Duds!

Anyways! I hope you all are inspired by this layout and that you will stop by Just Cr8 and check out the contest!

OH and also I wanted to share that I won FIRST RUNNER UP in the MOSD album contest! I am very excited to have won this place- it's not THE winner, but close enough :) I'll be getting prize pack of MOSD goodies soon too- can't wait to play with it!

Here's some close ups of the page:
