These turned out to be the perfect pictures for this scrapbook layout I created earlier this year.  I made the layout for a scrapbook swap that I participated in at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference.  I really love this layout but it has lots of pieces!  And after making 10 of them for the swap – I was ready to put it away for a while.  This weekend though I pulled it back out and while I was looking through some pictures I found these that I took of Ryan last Easter in 2012.  Ryan is stylin’ the long hair and he has some beautiful eyes – he often gets comments about his eyes and I was lucky enough to get these pictures of him – he was “modeling” for me – it rarely happens – and then I got a candid shot where you can really see his eyes.  I had hoped to get some good pictures this year at our Easter gathering but mother nature didn’t really cooperate and it rained on and off all after noon.

Here are some close ups and a few details on what I used on the layout –
