Final Layouts for the "At Sea" Section

I'm putting our cruise albums together with the layouts sorted by theme or category, and today I'm sharing the final layouts for the section I've titled "At Sea" which showcase photos taken of the water and sky and horizon while we were at sea.

I used the front and back of a 12x12 divided page protector to include several photos of the open sea and sky.
Journaling reads: We enjoyed simply watching the water and sky and all the various shades of blue in both each day.

For these last two layouts, I used sketches from the PageMaps books as starting points.
Journaling reads: I don't know why it works the way it does, but watching the ship's wake fade away into the distance has such a calming effect.

I'm excited to be making progress on our 10th Anniversary Cruise Albums and am now working on completing the section about our day in Cozumel. What are you working on this week?

Those sunsets are absolutely glorious and the little touches of yellow in your papers a great match.

Glorious sunsets and sky - I too like watching the wake of the boat smooth out and disappear.

Those sunset photographs are beautiful! And the layout has the perfect colors to accent them.
