A lot of times I start out with a two page layout making them blend together. Or I focus a layout on an event. A lot of scrap booking stuff today is focusing on the everyday, things like this that you may have heard about is project life, and the smash books. Even the Close to my Heart My Crush books. I have found not having pictures already printed, and sometimes just doing one page at a time lets me focus more on the everyday stuff, and even let me make completely unique layouts that can blend together.
