I am going to suggest you seriously look at photobooks where you upload photos to templates and add titles and journaling. Knock out those baby books quickly so you can enjoy and share them.
Then use your traditional materials to make special pages of your most favorite photos. Set a realistic goal for yourself of say "1 page per month".
You will then end up with very special books; convenient books of your photos (that still have your creative input) AND a book of your fantastic scrapbooking masterpieces (without the "guilt" of trying to scrap everything).
It's OK to do simplier photo/scrapbooking projects!!! This hobby is not about tricking ourselves into doing it.
