It's spring on Pixels and Paper Challenge blog ...

Spring is here and we are on the downhill run to Christmas - both exhilarating and yet depressing at the same time!

This month on Pixels and Paper Challenge Blog we have what I think is a really delightful inspirational photograph.  It is simple yet really can produce so many thoughts. 

 
What do you see when you gaze at this image?  A beautiful little boy, amazing soulful eyes, a mop of curls, a hand knitted jumper, flowers, a hand extending friendship or love, an age gone by  ......
 
so many things from a simple picture!
 
Here is my take on the inspiration piece ....
 
 
 
I was drawn to the eyes in this inspiration photograph - they say that the eyes are the window to the soul and I have always felt that you can see well beyond the surface when you look into someones eyes.  I have used a vintage photo of my husband as a young boy - he probably won't like me saying he's vintage but I'll counter the slight with a comment on how beautiful and expressive his eyes are. 
 
 
You have until the end of the month to create your own masterpiece.  We'd love to see what you can make of this photograph.
