I did buy one once when I first started scrapbooking. I brought it home and copied it piece by piece. That was before I knew there were such inspiring sources as Simple Scrapbooks s and scrapbook.com. ;^)
Yes, I took my kids to DC a couple of years ago, and before I went, I would go into scrapbook store s and buy everything they had which related to DC, so I bought this page. I like it because it looks like I put a lot of work in it, but it was one of the easiest to do. I didn't like it because it was hard to find related pictures of the correct orientation and size.
My first thought on this question was no but I just remembered that our dollar store carries them
(and they are pretty nice!). I only used one and gave the other 3 or 4 away that I bought. Just not for me.
i did get a LO when i first started scrapbooking. it looked like a lot of work was put into it with all the different stickers and embelishments. so i figured it would be cheaper to just buy the LO since the embelishments on the page appeared to have cost more than what i bought it for. i got it and was slightly disappointed. the embelishments were just scanned and some poorly printed onto the LO. oh well, live and learn. if anything it taught me how to scraplift, since this was before i knew about the different idea books and magazines.
I have not purchased completly done pages, but I have purchased the "kit" to make the pages at my LSS. They have some really cute pages. I actually want to 8X8 Lego album for my DS to document all his creationd but it has premade pages in it.
