Lighthouse Tour

Sometimes it is so hard to scrapbook vacations.  There always seems to be either too many or too few (that's a rarity for me if I am honest) photos to do what I want with a layout.  This layout was a little hard for me.  I had tonnes of photos and as you can see I had a hard time narrowing down which ones to use.  I always start with my favorites but sometimes (like in this case) I had 15 photos I liked, yikes!  I managed to weed out 5 more based on which ones I could crop and fit on the page but I always feel bad about the ones I leave out.  I am curious about all of you.  How do you weed out photos?  Do you every find you take too many?  What do you do with the extras (if anything)?

Because I had so many photos, it left very little room for journalling.  I managed to find a long rectangular journalling spot and decided to tuck it in with the title.

I also managed to stick another little journalling spot on the top right with the flowers where I could put the date the Lighthouse was built.  Sneaky I know!
