Circles in the harbour

Or should I say....on the harbour page......I decided on a double page layout for our trip on a boat round Palma Harbour.......and Jennifer's prompt on using shapes inspired me to add circles and semi-circles to these pages......they seemed to fit in well with the 'watery' theme.
I wanted to get quite a few photos on these two pages....not much room for patterned papers....so the circles just add a bit of colour and interest.

We really enjoyed our boat trip on the Marco Polo........sharing the trip with just one family [who's little boy was allowed to steer for awhile........that would break every health and safety rule in the UK......but he was so excited and proud.....it's a memory he'll probably hold dear forever]......seeing all the luxury yachts.....such an interesting view of Palma from the water......and magnificent views of the cathedral.

The circles perfectly mimic the life preservers, so work well for this layout. That cathedral looks gorgeous!

What a beautiful building. I love circles on LOs and, as Cheri says, they work well here.

I love the circles and the patterns, I think it transforms the page.

Beautiful photos & the circles add a nice element to these pages. I especially like the half scalloped circles on the first one.

Ditto to Melissa's comment! The photos are just great, and so is the design.

The circles are perfect. I always admire how you get lots of pictures on a page..and you've done it again

Lovely circles on your layout and that looks such a lovely place to visit.

Interesting that you went on the Marco Polo. They sail locally and IO have looked at their itinerary. I quite liked the idea of sailing around GB and the surrounding islands. Love your layouts... the circles look really effective.

I like the semi-circles with varying edging. It gives a lot of visual appeal.
