Scrapbook Sunday ~ Alignment

Are you ready for another Scrapbook Sunday?  Sorry about the glare on these photos.  I put page protectors on before I took the pictures.

What I love about these pages is how "clean" they are.  I left the background neutral and used a darker neutral shade of brown to mat the photos.  If you look at the LHS (left hand side) you will see that the bottom row is straight and the top row is a bit catty-wampus.  On the RHS (right hand side) I did just the opposite.  Somehow this creates balance on my pages.
On these next two pages you can see I aligned the LHS horizontally and the RHS vertically. I like to mix it up. Both sides have the same number of pictures. This was not done on purpose. I just noticed it while looking at this picture. ;)

Again I used the horizontal on one side and vertical on other side.  I must have been in a "mood" the day I made these pages.  They are all from the same trip to Tumwater Falls so I tried to make them cohesive.  That is also why both layouts use green paper for the background.  It helps to make "events" flow if you use similar colors for the entire group of photos. 

My favorite part of this layout was how I highlighted the salmon trying to jump the waterfall.  I punched out the salmon using the 1 1/4" scallop circle punch then layered it on to a 1 3/8" white circle.  Next I adhered it back on to the photo.

I love the way you used the punches to accentuate the salmon! Super creative idea!
