Harry4An early scrapbooking sketch is the basis for this layout.

Isabella, who comes from a blue-eyed family, was captivated with Harry’s big, dark brown eyes and wanted to emphasize them in this layout. She chose this sketch because it allowed her to use the round photo placement to zoom in on the child’s face and show his eyes. Click on the image to see a larger view.

In the journaling she tells the story of their visit …

We were amazed, Harry, that at only 25 months old you had such a vocabulary. You told us about the ‘helicopter’ on the ceiling of the dining room of the hotel you visited on the Isle of Wight – your parents informed us this was a fan! You asked every day of your visit if we would see the ‘rhinoceros’ on our way into town. You told us about the Elements Table at breakfast one morning, using words I hadn’t even heard of (alright then, Dad is a chemistry teacher and Mum did have to ask you the questions in the right order – but, hey, who would know if you got it wrong … I certainly didn’t! lol!)
Then every night after you were put to bed, we were amused to hear you talking to yourself and going through all you had done that day. You weren’t a constant chatterbox, but you certainly had a good vocabulary.

It was fun having you visit.

And, oh, those eyes!

It’s good to re-visit an old scrapbooking sketch and see what you can make of it with new photographs and products. With good, flexible sketches in your armory you are ready for anything.
