Do you think it's easier to scrap with the pictures or without them?? Maybe it's my missing creative gene, but I think it's much easier to scrap without the pictures in hand. I usually know what photos I will use so the placing works with my shots, but I find that if I don't actuallyuse them while building my page I am less "blocked"... is it just me? anyone else do this ever?? (I think looking at the picture locks my mind into a scene already and makes it more difficult for me to be creative in my page)

I personally can't scrap without pictures. The pictures are my inspiration for the L/O and that's where I run from

Thank you
*Kiliki* for my beautiful siggie!

I have done some books with no photos, but they were gifts. I like to match my papers to the photos.

i do need the pictures so i know how i can lay out my page, but i can see why you like without. your page will look exactly how you want since you won't have to adjust to a wrong sized picture

Thank you bokkechick for my fantastic Siggy

I also need my photos to scrap - often, especially when I'm blocked, I'll use them to draw inspiration from!

I can not do it without the photos. I need them to see how much I will crop them and to play off of the colors. Or to see how many I want to use on the page.

I have done a few without, but prefer to have my pictures available when I do a layout.

I need to have the photos with me. I have done a few pages without and it just doesn't seem the same to me.
