A Round Up Layout

The Get It Scrapped! assignment: Make a page that is some kind of substantial round-up.

Over the years, we've taken trips along Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior in search of lighthouses. This layout is a round-up of those vacations, using left-over photos I saved from each trip. It was a bit of a challenge remembering the name and location of each lighthouse, but thanks to my scrapbooks and the Internet, I was able to locate all the information.


Collection Featured: Fancy Pants The Good Life


Collecting related photos onto one layout is a great way to see patterns in your life that have evolved over time. The key is, you have to be willing to "age" your pictures for a few months or years and perhaps look past the obvious for a deeper connection. There are more great examples of round-up pages in the article here.



Do you have some photos from the past that you could group with more recent photos and discover a topic for a round-up layout? These are some of my favorite pages!

  3. Yes, they are favourite of mine too. Round ups and "then and now" - that's seriously enjoyable scrapbooking.

  8. Love this 2 pager! I do age my photos and love the connections I can make later when the photos are out of their original context and I'm willing to "see" what's there. This is a fabulous layout - love colorful photos and the stitching!

  18. Fantastic layout! Love the roundup idea. I once did a layout of photos from SeaWorld. The 3 photos were taken with the same stone dolphin. Me at age 6 with my family. Me as a teen with my family. Me as an adult with my daughters.

  19. Fabulous travel layout. I just started doing these kind of layouts (no people), just about the location. Wonderful.

  20. I've got one of these! We take my sons picture in the same place every year. I've got 5 years worth now and its awesome to see the progression over time.

  21. I LOVE your layouts! I especially love the fact that you are documenting your light house tours as my husband and I have spent the last couple of summers touring the state visiting the same houses. :) Now if I could only get them documented! (The photo on the far right is my favorite! I grew up in T.C. and used to spend time each summer at that lighthouse.)
    Thanks for the inspiration,
    Jenny-Lynn

  22. What a beautiful layout. I have been trying to create a lighthouse layout where all the photos, not the embellishments would take center stage. Your layout is a perfect example of this, every photo on your layout pops and no one photo or embellishment overpowers another.
