I was inspired by Marjohn's Blue Eyes. Her page caught my eyes last October and I saved it in my favorites to someday "scraplift". (Someday arrived when Scraplift 2 Challenge came!) The eyes are those of my three sons. The verse is Psalm 145:15. It has been scripture routinely spoken as part of a table prayer in our family, though from the King James version, since I was a little girl. This page is dedicated to my Grandma and Grandpa Krause, who taught me the prayer. I have also included a copy of Marjohn's beautiful work and a few other versions of my page.

OH WOW!!! This is amazing!!! Just breathtaking..I have tears in my eyes it is so moving. I've wanted to scraplift this page for a long time but I haven't found the right photo. You did an outstanding job!! I hope you're going to frame this one.

WOW!!! Thank you. YOU are amazing! I am still uploading one final version in B&W and I double-clicked onit by mistake, noticing your rapid comment. Thank you for such a positive response. I haven't been able to Digiscrap for a month nor enter the contest for two times. You are connecting me back into MM DigiWorld! FYI, two of those sets of eyes were on the home computer so I had to utilize the limited amount of photos I have stored on my laptop to make the LO. I encourage you to try to scraplift the LO and use what you already have. I did zoom in a bunch of times into each photo and some will pixilate when printed.

This is really good. Finding the right pictures for this must have been trying..you did a great job, and I love the different LO's for these.

What a great idea to scraplift. It's very powerful to see into these beautiful eyes. I must try it with my own children. Two of my three children are teenagers though. It may be more challenging to capture that look of innocence, wonder and joy. I wonder what I will capture in their eyes? Thanks to both of you for the inspiration.

I really like every one of the different pages that you shared with us. I can't really say that I have a favorite. I probabally be scraplifting a few. Thanks for the AWESOME inspiration.

Thank you my design comrads! I added another LO to show what the photos I took looked like and how much I had to zoom in on them to get to the eyes. If I had planned the LO in advance, I would have zoomed in on the subjects with my camera...most likely that is what Marjohn did. My subjects do not stay still for very long (tee-hee!) so I will try that method sometime soon...but no promises.

Sorry to all for the long hiatus!! Thank you so much for this AMAZING COMPLIMENT! Your pages are GORGEOUS and definitely inspiring. I've thought about trying to do an "anatomy", of sorts, book---you know, macro shots of the eyes, eyelashes, hair, ears, lips, nose, hands, toes, belly button, etc... What do you think? Again, thank you and God bless you!!
