Climbing high in Lisbon

We really enjoyed our short time in Lisbon......a lovely,extremely old city that we want to return to......we spent a lot of our day high above the city.....where there were amazing views......so I decided to start with a double page layout of photos taken at the top of the city.......based on Shimelle's idea for making it look like one 12 x 24 page.
I used papers from the second pack that I'd used in the 'Return to the Collection' class.....and the embellishments have all been cut or punched from the papers as well.
Although we traveled part of the way up the city by tram.....there was still a lot of walking up extremely steep streets involved! 
But we were rewarded by amazing views over the city.......and you can see the suspension bridge in the lower photo.
Southern Europe seems to specialise in decaying buildings......that still manage to look impressive!!

The colors in the photographs on the first layout are just stunning. I don't know much about Lisbon, but I think I should find out more. Looks like a great place to visit.
