My newest layout showcasing my favorite feature of my girl

I love how this layout turned out. I got the sketch idea from my scrapbooks etc. magazine. This layout showcases one of my favorite features of my little girl...her eyes. They are my eyes. Some how, even though my husband has dark brown soulful eyes both my girls have my blue eyes. After M had such powerfully blue eyes I thought for sure my second girl E was going to have her Daddy's deep rich brown eyes, but nope. We defied the odds and have two blue eyed girls. Having a husband with brown eyes I did not think it would be likely I would have any blue eyed children, but here they are.  I love that I can see myself in their eyes. So to steal a line from Harry Potter....

 This is a picture of my firstborn girl when she was about 6 she is 22 months...where does the time go? my second one is even older than this now, she will be 8 months! She is a petite little thing though and still in 3-6 months clothes so it makes me feel like she is still a little baby. 

That pink lace you see on this layout started out twice a wide and white with a blue ribbon in it. It was not the look I was going for, so I pulled out the ribbon, cut it in half, and used my spray inks to die it pink and let it sit overnight. Worked like a charm. You can see from the picture I used one of my homemade shimmer mists. I challenge you to look through the supplies you have and don't use. How can you re-purpose those items to make them new again?

    Mommy's eyes are the first thing I remember Clint telling me about the new girl that he met. He said before they knew it, they had talked all night and she had the most beautiful blue eyes he had ever seen. Then the desktop on my computer became home to a pic of a lovely young woman with long, dark hair, and the most piercing blue eyes I'd ever seen. No wonder she got his attention! Now a few short years later, I have two of the most beautiful granddaughters with the same piercing blue eyes and have captured my heart and look straight into my soul.

    Thanks for joining in the SSC this week.
