What comes first? The photos or the pages?
Do you scrap based on pre-chosen photos for a page or do you create your layouts and then find photos for those pages? How about both?!? I spent my last few scrappy hours creating pages inspired by Imagine by Jeanette Lynton (CTMH). Now I have pages just waiting to be filled with CHRISTmas, Valentines, Family, Birthday's, and other Memorabilia. Pre-creating pages is also a great way to get ideas for pictures you want to make sure you get. There are always those special events and "grab a camera and take of picture of...." that need a custom made page, but there's no reason to not have some pages premade and just waiting for pictures.
