LMCB 98 - Black and White with a splash of color!!

Good Sunday Morning.  It's time for the next FUN challenge over at
 LASTING MEMORIES Layout challenges.

This week we want to see BLACK and WHITE with a SPLASH of color.
This can be a Black and White photo/photos... or use color photos and use mostly Black and White paper and decor.  How ever you interpret it, the idea is Black and White with a little pizzaz added.  :-)

Here is what I did...


Our son is turning 6 this month... and I remembered I had this fantastic photo of him from his very FIRST birthday eating his cake that a very dear friend snapped of him.  If you notice... the photo is Black and White, but then his eyes are colored in blue.  That is his real eye color.  So sticking with the BLUE... I added some more blue patterned paper along with some green.  I have to admit, this is a challenge!!  I had a hard time sticking with just one color.  I stated in my journaling that "Your big bue eyes hold so many "Firsts" to come."  Indeed he has explored life to his fullest thus far!!

Thanks so much for visiting!!  You have until Saturday, July 28th at 9pm EST to link up HERE.
Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
