It's in the eyes . . .

I have been MIA again. My life has taken a course of it's own. Lots of things happening that are out of my control. But I do see how God is working in my life during this time. Trying to put my trust in Him and see His will for my life. It's hard to let go of the control but I am getting there by taking baby steps each day.

So, here I am in the middle of the week, in the middle of the day, to share with you a layout I did recently for IIG! The challenge this month is to get a close up of eyes and scrap them!

My little Jackson's eyes speak volumes. Every little thing he is thinking or feeling is expressed through his sweet little eyes. Because of that, I really wanted the focus of the layout to go straight to his sad, puppy dog eyes in this picture. This picture was taken right after he threw a huge fit . . . don't even remember what about now! The saying that the eyes are the windows to the soul is so completely true in his case!

I used Basic Grey's Oliver collection on this layout. A little doodling around the edges with a white pen just to help bring it all together and ta-da!!!

Make sure to stop over at to see what the rest of the DT has designed for you this month and then join in the challenge!
