I have done this and I found it hard to scrap without pictures. I used photo corners and made all pictures 4x6. The couple I gave it to really liked it and in fact, today they mentioned that they meant to bring it to show me and how much they appreciated it. I would suggest 8x8 and make it very easy for them to add the pictures and only do it if you know they will appreciate it. I know alot of people who have done this only to find out the people don't add the pictures and could care less about the gift.
