As well as cutting the photo into a circle and centering it in the layout, a large amount of circles were cut out of various background papers and clustered together to create breathtaking scrapbook layouts. The layout includes spiral and circle stitching on some of the circle elements. A swirly gemstone embellishment with curves and swooshes reflecting the arcs of the circles themselves has been added. The background chosen contains polka-dots further adding to the repetition of circular elements. When working with a layout like this, cut various sized circles and layer them randomly until you have a pleasing pile of circles to add your photo to. This layout of the circles also form a cloud shape. You could work with that by adding actual cloud shapes or even rays of sunshine emanating from your focal point.

For some scrapbook for boyfriend ideas, use inking on the edges of elements, or distressing techniques to scuff up your elements to suit the style.
