Pet Porpoise Pool

For Christmas we received tickets to the Pet Porpoise Pool in Coffs Harbour. We went as a family and had a great day. Watching the dolphin show was the highlight but the seals were funny and such characters.

Here is a layout I did about the day. I cropped my photos narrowly so that I could easily fit 5 photos on the layout. It also helped focus on the the dolphins, removing the distracting backgrounds.

Hope you like.

Oh Cindy, this layout is fantastic! I saw that idea of cutting the photos narrower in one of my mags a while ago, think it was Creating Keepsakes December. Love it, it looks very cool... You can also get that effect in Picasa if you create a collage. Just select the 5 photos you want to use then you don't waste anything. I did one on my blog, of my son Jack, but not yet scrapped it.

This is so cool Cindy, love the effect of cutting up a photo into small strips, I have just done a similar thing on a LO over on my blog! Love the cute nose of the seal! I luv Picasa too! Luv Shaz xoxo
