How long does it take you to complete a layout?

I was just wondering how long it takes everyone to finish their layouts, on average?

depends on Jamie. If I am in my scraproom alone after he goes to bed, I'd say an hour ro so most of the time, sometimes less. If Jamie is with me, 3 or 4 hours or days Lol

Ruthie's pretty good at entertaining herself, so usually it takes about 30 minutes to an hour. Depends on if I have a LO in mind or if I am taking off without any idea of what I am doing! Lol

You guys are quick! I guess with my old program I could do a page in about an hour, but I've been trying to learn Photoshop and it takes me probably 2 hours or a bit more to do a layout now.

Ditto!! Brooklynn has a little Tikes table right next to my computer and will color or play well by herself most of the time so if I have a lO in mind then I'd say it takes an hour or less. If I don't have an actual LO in mind it can take several hours:(

When I was learing to use photoshop it took me forever as well. But it is worth it in the end so keep plugging away at it. You will master it in no time:)

The ones I do now take somewhere around 45 mins to an hour...sometimes it's hard to tell cuz I'll be working on one, get something from the paper box, get an idea, and start thinking of another.

about an hour ... depends if I have my laptop on (like I do right now). I get totally distracted online. but if I can focus on the page, and know what I want to do, I can get a layout down in 45-60 minutes. if I don't have a great idea, then it's usually closer to 90 minutes because I'm wrestling with what I want to do and colors of the papers.

If I have a LO in mind and all the materials necessary to complete the LO then it take about an hour. If I go into it needing to know what color papers to use, etc then it can take a good couple hours.

If I have a spark of creativity..not long at all.

If I'm sitting staring at my pictures without any inspiration...DAYS!

Like others have said, if I know what I want to do and what materials to use (I paper scrap), it could take as little as 1/2 hour to an hour. That is, if DS is sleeping or with DH. If I need more time to plan and/or need to keep up with the baby, it could take days of 10 minutes here and there.

About an hour. I love when I can complete one in less time, but usually it's close to an hour.

If I can work nonstop (ie, Scout's asleep) only about an hour. The longest was about 2 hours but most of that was working on lining things up - it was a very symetrical thing that I had in mind.

It takes me 30 minures to 1 hour usually. I too get very distracted by the internet. My scrapspot is in the LR so I can multi-task scrap and play with the kids.
