Those Eyes - Details and Close-ups (ScrapThat! March Kit)

For my final layout with the ScrapThat! March Kit, I scrapped another of my son's "School Photos". He has the most beautiful, soulful blue eyes - which just melt my heart, so I've called the layout "Those Eyes".
I have to admit, this is my favourite layout that I created from this kit. I just love this photo and how the torn/punched layering turned out. I used two different Martha Stewart edge punches and alternated the punched layers with torn layers, also tearing the ends of the layered papers at the top and bottom.
The flower clusters are a combination of flowers/leaves from the main kit as well as from the February Kit Flower Add-on - I also added in a couple of corkscrew swirls created from the stems off the white roses. I just love the crinkle ribbon that was included in this kit - it creates such a pretty bow!
Another bow and some white roses to help frame the title of the layout.

I wanted to show you one more close-up of the photo. I got the digital files for my son's pictures and played with this photo in Photoshop to create a vintage black & white photo effect, but then re-revealed the eye colour. I'll be sharing a tutorial on how I did this later in the month!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I appreciate your visits and sweet comments so much!
