Roses are red, violets are blue and in between… a million beautiful hues! Everyone has their own personal pigment of choice, but a survey by YouGov conducted in 10 countries across four continents revealed that one hue — blue — is the most popular across the worldwide board. Blue has been known to represent both the sky and the sea, and is associated with notions of trust, loyalty, wisdom and tranquility.

I like the circles especially on the strip near the bottom. They add visual appeal to the page and help the pictures stand out.
Lovely couple! Congrats on their 25 years. Blue is my favorite color, too! I love royal blue all the way to baby blue.
Circles and lines create a pleasing look with the contrast of shapes. Don’t worry about using too much blue. It gives peaceful, hopeful vibes to any page.
