What do you tell yourself when you think a page needs more work? I sometimes fall into this pitfall.

Sadly, I am so far behind in my scrapbooks that I do the minimum. Otherwise, I leave a page and come back to it and if I am not happy with it later, I do more.

Are there outlines that you use for your pages?

I definatly try something out before I make it permanent on the page, if it doesnt work, try something else, but i think that if you put too much on it, it looks horrible@

I think you should have someone else look at the page that can honestly tell you if it has everything it needs.

I don't have anyone that scrapbooks. I'm kinda out of luck. There are some pages that I'm extremly satisfied with though.

To me it's more important to get pages done than to get them perfect. I could spend hours and hours agonizing over one page, or in that time I could do 10. I know if I take too long working on a single page that I will never complete my albums and get caught up, so it motivates me to move on when it looks good, not when it looks perfect.

Another good comment. I don't know which one I'm going to pick to being the most helpful.
