Your eyes ....

Hi everyone! 

Thank you all for the love and support on my recent post... I truly appreciate it! You are all the BEST!

I wanted to share my latest take on our March sketch over on Artful Delight! This month's kit is just *swoon-able!* I absolutely LOVE it!!! 




My layout is about Brookie's two different colored eyes... Her left eye turned brown/hazel... but her right eye stayed the same blue-gray that we are all born with -- it never changed -- her ophthalmologist doesn't know if it's from her Port Wine Stains or not, so we have to have her eyes checked every 6 months (for those that don't know, Port Wine Stains can cause glaucoma or even blindness)....






And here is our sketch this month!!


I also wanted to share 5 (YES! FIVE!) cards I made for the recent color challenge at The Play Date Cafe!!!

Here is their color scheme this week.....

And I had some Fancy Pants papers and embellies...and some Pink Paislee ones too that I thought were perfect for this color scheme!! Next thing I knew, I had made 5 cards for this challenge! LOL!





Everything I used on my cards came from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com



Close up of "Sweet Spring...Life is Good"



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

I have a niece with two coloured eyes, as a child I could not stop staring at her. I thought she was soooo beautiful and special and unique! (she was/is ofcourse!) You already know David Bowie has two different coloured eyes too, I guess. Brookie's in good company! The layout is beautiful!

lisa said...

I like that Brookie is so unique. I just hope it doesn't mean there's a problem with her eye sight in the future, poor love has enough to deal with as it is.
Beautiful LO Julie and I love the new blog look : )
