I've lost my Mojo

I am so burnt out. I made this First Year Baby Book for my aunt. I actually took a class, All About Baby at BHG Scrapbooksetc. I actually took all the class last November and I really love this album. But it takes alot of man hours to create. I find that I enjoy scrapbooking for the creative side. I enjoy a challenge from Twopeas or Faithsisters. I like taking a basic idea and building on that idea. But when I create the Baby Album, I have to stay pretty straightforward and it gets monotonous. However, I am in the middle of a new one and I feel guilty putting it to the side to do a personal project. The baby is not due until November and if I let my procrastinate self have it's won't be done until the baby is due and I won't create anything else until then.

How many pictures do you put on your LO?

That is a tough question. I don't have a particular amount of pictures that I put on a layout. It really depends on what I am trying to say on my LO. For example, if I am writing a love letter to my daughter about the just one aspect of her personality or maybe I am writing down my thoughts and dreams for her, then I would probably just use one 5X7 picture. However, if I am trying to tell a story of the day's events or a holiday, then I may put several pictures on a LO.

When using several pictures, I love using premade templates for the pictures. And the best that they are free collage templates.

They are very easy to use and really help many when I have 5/8/10 pictures I want to use on a page.
