Bloggers Challenge - Colors: Scrapbook layout showcasing Orange, Black and White

Hello to my readers, followers and Blogger's Challenge Players.  This week Lisa Somerville prompted us with a most intriguing color challenge... Orange, Black and White. You can click here and take a tour of the Challenge Players Creations.
 I am thinking we should start calling our List Mom..."Leave it to Lisa".  
Lisa challenges us to explore creative avenues that we may have not have discovered on our own. I know I would not have used the color orange with this photo...thanks Lisa..
 I took this photo many years ago...of my grandaughter...she was quite a fashion diva and loved to pose for Grandma ( sometimes).. I am amazed  by all the varied hues of orange and how these colors curiously spot-light the black and white photo.  Adding this color prominently brought attention to those beautiful and inquisitive eyes.
