Lasting Memories-Black and White and a Splash of Color

This week the challenge at Lasting Memories is to use Black and White and a Splash of color. 
I apologize for being late with my post this week.  I had a Crops of Love charity hop on Sat and Sunday and then two DT post yesterday.  So now on with my layout which I am excited to share.

 I decided to use this picture of my granddaughter Kenzie with her big blue eyes and use blue as my color. The paper I used was from an 8 x 8 pad of 7 Gypsies called Paddington.  
I framed Kenzie's picture in a a blue, white and black mat.  
The four pieces were laid out and the corners turned and put down with brads.  
The title was done with the Cricut cart Nursery Rhyme (Blue 2.5 and Eyes 1.5) and then I added some white gel pen accents.  
I wanted to add something else and came up with this idea for the twine.  I have a box of these fancy little paper clips from my teaching days.  So I pulled out some that matched hooked them to the picture and then ran the twine through.  
And here it is "Blue Eyes"
Please join us this week at Lasting Memories for the "Black and White and a splash of color".  
We would love to see your creations.  Remember this is a layout challenge only and you must link up by Saturday to be in the challenge.  Happy craftin!
