    Rarely, I need the picture for inspiration. BUT, I have at times, especially for template challenges or such

    I can't place photos....if I place photos or know what photos I am scrapping, I get blocked. Almost 95% of the time, if I'd placed my photos, I never finish that layout. I scrap my layout and then go looking for the photos that I "had in mind" when I started scrapping. Yeah, I know I'm weird, but this is how my brain works--crazy
    I can't get photobucket to work.

    I'm like Melly, it's probably a 50/50. There are many times I create a whole layout with no idea of the photo(s) I'll use. But generally I have a photo in mind but may pop it in after I'm all done and hunt for it.

    That is a great idea!! I may have to try that...if I ever get organized enough to do it, that is!!

    But I'm changing up the way I scrap, I'm sorting through an entire month's worth of photos and weeding out photos and grouping them by the event or type of page I'm scrapping. Then I can label the folder (which is already in a folder called Feb 2012) "Valentines_4) then I know I need to make a valentine's type LO with 4 photos on it.

    LOL! Yeah I loathe sorting, weeding, etc, so when I finish a month (yes I scrap in order and rarely out of order, must be part of my OCD brain! LOL). So it seems like I hit a wall when I switch to the next month, but for a few months of scrapping now I'll weed & sort all at once, then it seems like I fly through the pages! I try to get all the weeding for that month done in a day or 2 so I don't spend too much time at it, then I roll!

    I've done the whole scrap first, take photos later thing a couple of times, its a little more dificult, but if I know there is something I'll be going to and just have the urge to scrap before it happens I'll do it.

    Very rarely! I normally need to know what photo(s) is/are going to be on the page before my brain is able to start constructing the layout.
