I stopped and started, but this one came together much quicker than usual. Probably about 35-40 minutes (compared to an hour and a half or more) The blocking and fewer elements definitely helped.
While I'm at work, your Dad and I often chat online. On this day, he transcribed for me all the funny things you were chattering about.

"You ate all the nuts ... you gonna eat some more nuts?"
this one took about 1-1/2 hrs. usually it takes me 3+ hours. yes, im one of those 'stare at the page for 15 minutes' kind of people the only reason it took me that long is because im having to glue everything down with a glue stick! my xyron ran out of paper this past thursday .
I usually spend at least 1 1/2 hours on a page so this one was pretty quick, I only spent 35 minutes!
LOVING all these simple LOs
Angie, that is DARLING!!!
Gwen, that is another great two pager! The bears are so cute. His hair looks so light in these pics too. Wow!

LOL! I thought it was Jack at first glance, too! I think I was looking more at the page elements than the actual pictures! (And date!)
These are all great! I tried to do a "halftime" layout last night and failed miserably! LOL. I got sidetracked and ended up taking probably longer than usual. Oops!! I'm going to try again later today, though. Love this idea!
And I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that usually takes 2+ hours on a single LO!
Okay, after my third attempt at a quick layout, I finally managed to follow through! It took me 45 minutes on the dot, which I would say is about perfect! I am sure most layouts take me at least an hour and a half, and many take well over 2 hours. The funny thing is that I was disappointed that it took the full 45 minutes. I felt like I was moving really fast, and if I had to guess I would have thought it was less than a half hour. Oh, well...I guess I am just not a fast scrapper! Here is the layout; scraplifted from Trina (and everyone else ).
